    On the latest episode of "Buying the same guitar again and again" we are searching possible iterations of specifications below:

    Floyd-rose (played the Charvel/Ιbanez 2-point flavors of the month and its either hard-tail or floyd for me)
    22 or 24 frets
    25,5 scale (certainly not higher)
    Budget is ~1000€.

    Found those 3 guitars, anyone with experience on them feel free to chime-in

    https://www.thomann.de/gb/fender_player_ser_strat_fr_hss_mn_tpl.htm
    https://www.thomann.de/gb/jackson_pro_sl3_mah_satin_orange_blaze.htm

    Considering that pickups on the Fender would have to be changed all of them are at around the same pricepoint.

    Thanks a lot!

    Yeah, you can definitely get a quality used DK24 for about half your price point and they're great guitars.

    The Charvel So-Cal has a pickguard so I think you can swap out the neck hum and put in two single coils. Those are great guitars. It has a Floyd.
