    i dont ask for much, but it doesn't seem to exist in standard guitars currently:
    single cut body
    24 frets stainless steel frets
    easy access to upper frets
    both bridge and neck pickup
    triple binding
    ebony board
    snow/alpine white finish
    no inlays, or block inlays
    chunky neck
    fixed tail
    24.75 scale

    carvin/keisel is there, sure, but not standard.
    balaguer is there, but not standard.
    LTD Eclipse is there, but not 24 stainless steel. of if they do, then its missing neck pickup, or binding, or something else

    Ibanez rga shape
    7 string
    reverse headstock
    fishman fluence modern
    swamp ash body
    maple neck and board
    24 stainless steel frets
    26.5 in scale length
    locking tuners
    hipshot bridge
    no inlays
    some sort of dark green burst finish, or just a simple black or white solid color.

    I would kill to have a guitar with these specs

    Im a big fan of hardtail hh superstrats with 22 frets and really basic aesthetics. Also 3 way toggle switch. Super straightforward. Maybe something like:

    Ibanez Prestige RG652FX GK with ebony board, black hardware.

    E II M II NT (hipshot bridge, bkp model) alder/maple construction, instead of mahogany/maple. Brown sunburst or gloss black finish, plain look on back of neck. Center dot inlays instead of offset.

    I´m in favour of all you said except for 22 frets. I prefer 24 frets. Also, HSH is a bit better. But yeah superstrats and basic aesthetics are neat.

    This guitar exists but doesnt exist. Gibson are too expensive but I would buy this one if they do a general sig.

    ok...I feel stupid. I just posted above that I wanted an LTD version of the Lynch Skulls and Snakes because I had never seen one or evidence of one...ESP only. Apparently there is one. Made one year only. And I found one for sale. It's within my price range...and I don't actually want it now that I can get it. So I am both misinformed and apparently not serious in my convictions so here is what I want...it is very simple....are you listening guitar...um God...maker of guitar making decisions.

    I want a LTD Hanneman with DOT inlays. No nazi related stuff on the fretboard. DOT effing inlays. Then I will buy several and be happy. I think others would too.

    Rhoads V without any inlays, non-reversed headstock, binding on neck and headstock, black finish. Or a King V with a reversed headstock but again with binding and no inlays. and a belly cut :D

    or generally just more Vs with a simple look like this

    A high end MIJ Jackson that has the Concorde style and bound ebony board of the MII RR3. The rosewood board and lack of binding on the MIJ RR3 kills it for me. The MIJ I am envisioning would be RR2.

    These actually do exist as the Jackson Stars brand, but are very rare. I'm stalking them.... :agreed:
