    Hello,

    First happy news, or actually two of those :):):

    1.) My 15 years education journey is finally behind. I passed last exam some time ago and now I'm just waiting to get papers out.

    2.) I was also lucky to find a job (which corresponds my studies). Salary is not huge, but on line as I just graduate (and I should be able to live with that too ok). I will move to Sweden (Skåne) quite soon. The employer to whom I made my small thesis was ready to hire me :). My father comes from that area (most Southern Sweden) so I have relatives living there.

    Ok, sorry for that short ''epilogue'' ... now back to issue.
    For graduate gift I decide to have a new guitar :p. I though about G&L Tribute Comanche for awhile (probably asked about that here and also in Strat talks). But in the end I ended pretty different kind of guitar. Just as I though I will not need new st body guitar even as z-pickups are someway different.

    The price ranges (at least in Europe) were someway quite close, so that was not the key issue. If the delivery schedule will stand I should get that new guitar in few weeks (they did not have the color I wanted in stock). For sure I will post photos as it arrives.

    So do you want to guess what it will be? Do not ''punish'' me too much if you think I made stupid/idiotic move.

    * Electric guitar
    * Two pick ups
    * 22 frets
    * Price range about 550euros - 590 euros (at least in Europe)
    * Not fixed tremolo

    If is too difficult, I will expose more.

    Congratulations on “Finnish-ing” school studies!

    Looking forward to hearing about and seeing pics of the guitar.

    Congratulations! Very exciting news, and time in your life. Epi LP does seem like a pretty solid choice to me. Of course, maybe you found a really good deal on a Hagstrom Fantomen in Tobacco Sunburst?;)

    First off, congrats on graduating school and getting a job so fast! That is something to be very proud of! And good luck starting the next journey in your life. Sounds like you will do just fine!

    As far as the guitar goes, you already have a Les Paul? Right? And you are not very comfortable playing it. So I am going to guess something that looks more comfortable to play.

    To help a bit ... both pickups are dual coils (= one kind of humbuckers).

    Guitar is not either ''light'', which worries me a bit.

    Oh, that was @BlueSquirrel that had the post about the Les Paul. My bad.

    Ok, second guess, some sort of Schecter. Maybe this one.

    PRS SE Standard, both 22 or 24 fret variants are available and are IMO one of the best value guitars around.

    Feels (and sounds) familiar enough to a Strat, while offering a whole bunch of features that LPs are famous for (shorter scale length, set-neck construction, mahogany body, HH pickup config - with coil-splitting!). They're lightweight, the neck feels awesome, they come very well set-up as PRS ships all their import guitars to specialized QC centers in Europe, they stay well in tune, have comfortable body contours and you can reach pretty much all the way up to the 22nd/24th fret correspondingly thanks to the neck heel and lower horn cutout designs. While this is very subjective, they're also very classy and tasteful looking!

    I've had mine for about two years now and have been very happy with it. It's hands down the most comfortable guitar I've ever played (even compared to considerably pricier instruments I've pondered at the time, such as the LTD EC-1000) and of great quality. You may get the more pricey Custom lineup with fancy veneers and burst finishes, but what makes the Standard line so great is that other than the lack of a maple cap and the branded gigbag, they offer the exact same specs and quality for 200-300 euros less.

    Nope. The guitar might feel ''different'' from my strats (neck).

    I am not sure what guitar but I've noticed that most folks are guessing fixed bridge guitars, and I take this to mean that the guitar you bought *does* have a tremolo.
