    I think i like these? Musicman Armada. Couldn't figure out how i feel about these. And think MM has discontinued these now as they aren't on their website anymore.

    I may have liked them better if they were one solid color without the stripe, or any other randomness happening with it

    I'm picking up this Fujigen Les Paul custom this weekend. Super stoaked as I've wanted a LPC forever and from everything I've heard this should be way better quality and yet like 1/3rd the price.

    I've had this Heatley Tradition for several years now and can't really ask more from a guitar like this. It's got the looks and the design improvements (better neck heel and headstock). Brazilian rosewood, Honduras mahogany, Wolfetone pickups, freakin' flamed maple binding!

    Under $2k for a Fujigen made LP with Duncans and Gotoh hardware is not bad at all. Axe Palace just posted this one...

    Okay... I think I need a cigarette at this point. Some seriously sexy LP styles in here.

    I have a pretty good stock of Agile AL-2000 and AL-3XXX series guitars.

    Two of the Agile AL-2000 are Floyd equipped, have 24-fret necks, tilted neck heels, one has a Fernandes Sustainer with a DiMarzio Super Distortion in the bridge.

    The AL-3000 series are Custom clones with real ebony fretboards, compound radius fretboards, real shell (abalone or MOP) inlays, multi-layer binding on body and headstock, single-layer on the fretboard.

    I have a couple of neck-through construction AL-3200s (Axcess-style neck heels, tummy cuts) and a neck-through custom with a Fernandes sustainer, 16" radius fretboard, 1 3/4" nut width, jumbo frets, ebony fretboard, Floyd Rose, rearranged controls (master volume, master tone), Buckethead-style kill switch, sustainer intensity knob and a Chandler Tone-X active sweepable mids boost. Pickups on that one are a hot (9.2Kohm) '57 bridge and a DiMarzio Fast Track II neck pickup sharing a pickup ring with the Sustainer driver.

    Sexy! I have two Edwards Les Pauls and they punch way above their weight (price). The official John Sykes model and my unofficial Rhoads model complete with genuine python strap. :agreed:

    You won't regret it.

    This was mine when I got it new 5 years ago.

    I've since replaced the pickups with the Pegasus/Sentient set, followed by Black Winters. I've also replaced the tuners with Gotoh locking ones and added a TP6 tailpiece. Still an amazing guitar. No plans on getting rid of it.

    For me it would have to be a Schecter Solo-6 or Solo II with a 25.5" scale, preferably in satin black. I haven't managed to buy one yet though, and I would most likely ditch the pickups for a Bare Knuckle Impulse set.
