    Hello!
    I'm searching for a really budget guitar for a band I play rhythm guitar in.
    I'm really into purple and since I'm not set on a particular guitar I decided to search for something that catches and satisfies the eye, but I couldn't find a budget fixed bridge, humbucker equipped purple guitar. Any recommendations?
    I know my question sounds stupid, immature even, but I already have a go-to 7 string guitar that I use for everything else, I just need something just to jam with.
    Also, I need to be able to buy it in Europe, so Agile doesn't really work for me unfortunately.
    I know Vintage have a really pretty Reissued V6M24 in Purple with maple neck, but... it has a vibrato and I don't want any.

    So, any ideas what guitar is made in purple, has two Humbuckers in it and is with a fixed bridge?
    Thanks in advance!

    I've found either H-H with Floyd or the new contemporary which I hear are shite and don't have a purple version anyway.

    Shite for a budget guitar I meant. That they're not even worth the money they ask for them. There are a ton of negative reviews. And from what I've seen from Squier... I can imagine that being the case.
    On the other hand guitars like Harley Benton are worth half the money and are the same if not better, unfortunately they don't have anything purple.

    Thomann has something called Guitarlab where you can search after color.

    Every squier i have picked up in the last 10 years has been passable. I have a 93 ish affinity and it is also passable.

    @budda Maybe they deliver the shittiest Squiers in Bulgaria, but a couple of friends have Squiers and they are bad. But so are Ibanez here. I don't want to sound like a conspiracy theorist but I think it's possible that they send us the worst guitars here, cause Bulgaria.. you know.. who gives a fuck about that small country. And I've heard people who were in the USA or UK saying that the guitars and even strings there are of far better quality. Go figure...



    Thanks for the suggestions everyone, keep em coming!

    And if you don't mind Tune-o-matic bridges, they offer a monarkh:

    Yeah, that Telly was the tits, but it's a 7 string unfortunately. And out of my budget.

    I forgot to mention that I needed a 6 string lol.
    It's a sevenstring forum, I suppose that's the norm here (as it is for me as well). But in that particular case I need a 6-stringer. I should have been clearer. :cheers:

    Block the trem and get a setup and you've got yourself a sweet purple MIJ Ibanez.
