    So... right now my guitar collection consists of:

    Ltd EC-1000: My main rock/metal guitar, could be a rock guitar but the emg's tilt it towards metal

    Schecter Hellraiser 6 String: Breakdownzcore guitar

    Schecter Hellraiser 7 String: Djentbreakdownzcore guitar :loco:


    Right now i'd like to get something more vibey, especially since i've started to jam with a bunch of musicians lately and trying to expand my musical vocabulary.

    Right now i'm thinking of this:

    http://www.thomann.de/pl/parker_pm20pro_pw.htm


    But i've always had a weakness for telecasters, so i'm thinking of picking this up, but changing the bridge pick-up to a humbucker (which one?)

    http://www.thomann.de/pl/fender_standard_telecaster_maple_neck_2009.htm


    I know some might suggest gibson or music man, but i'm trying to stay low budget on this one.

    Anyone have any experience with the mentioned parker or tele ?

    The Peavey Wolfgang is my current favourite rock guitar. Though when I worked in a guitar store out of the thousands of guitars there my go to always a Tremonti SE, Lasse has it spot on there.

    The Schecter Blackjack is a good cheap rock guitar.

    Otherwise PRS Custom 24.

    I have Tele with a Duncan HotRails in the bridge...and I love the way it sounds! But then again, I don't typically do "metal" by the modern terms, except on a few occasions. It works perfectly (for me) for rock stuff.

    Nah man, i've got enough "metal" guitars... anywho, i had a chance to play the tremonti se a few years ago and it was ok, but didn't capture me.

    But this does empower my tele love:

    I like white guitars.

    But seriously. Tele or Jazzmaster. Both have serious attitude
    You've got enough Humbuckers.

    My wife got a Ibanez Telecaster Custom with a lil 59 on the bridge and it rocks. So, a Tele with a mini humbucker is win-win. Otherwise, the Schecter Blackjack is awesome, as Ermin suggested.

    yep, that's the new series.
    if you find an old Korean Tremonit you have a killer axe.
