    Hi folks!

    Can someone recommend me a guitar-that's available in Europe- with these specs?

    Body: Mahogany or basswood
    Neck: bolt-on maple
    STRAIGHT HEADSTOCK
    24 frets
    25,5 scale
    S-S-S pickup configuration
    Tremolo

    i know that the easiest way it would be to go for an Ibanez and put an S/S/S pickguard on it, but I am not the biggest fan of wizard necks.

    Any suggestion is appreciated!

    Yeah I am sure it is not an easy task, that is the reason i asked for some help. Still hope that there is this beast somewhere out there, i just slipped over it.

    ^^ Not a bolt on. Certainly the closest I could see though.

    What's your budget? I'd order an E-serial MIJ Fender strat from the 80s.

    and you could find a MusicMan Silhouette with an SSS config. I've seen them.

    The chapman looks fine. I have one from the original batch, not bad stuff, but i imagine, that the newer korean versions surpass the old ones. i loved my Prs Se from the same factory.

    Strats don't come to play, theyonly have 22 frets.

    Sounds like a Carvin.
    But if you're willing to bend on the number of frets (still 25.5" scale) and body woods (alder or swamp ash), this isn't too far off:

    22 fret s/s/s guitars are easy to find and choosing a strat would be an obvoius solution to this dilemma, but 24 frets are non negotiable specs-wise.

    Simply put I am looking for some kind of more affordable, stripped down version of a Charvel/Suhr GG, that's available in Europe.

    How is the shipping on a Warmoth? You could order one partscaster-style and get exactly what you want. It'd probably run 1200-1500 before international shipping depending on specs.

    You'd have to assemble it yourself, but the quality is insane, it probably wouldn't be subject to the same amount of customs because it isn't a completed instrument, and again, the craftsmanship is nuts. My hot-rod strat is better than any mij ibanez I've tried. I haven't tried many carvins but it's definetly in that ballpark.

    You could also get one of those Japanese Schecters that look very anderson-esque and change the pickguard?
    its got the trem, the 24 frets, the bolt on maple neck and the scale. Im not sure about wood tho. EDIT: according to specs, its basswood with maple top.
    matches everything xcept pickup config.

    something like this.
