    to me, an electric guitar is almost entirely all about the neck. the few I've played on with stainless steel frets were amazing. (only bad thing about the parker nite fly is that the body is so thin, you cant fit a normal pickup in it, so are left with the rizzy crap it comes with....which is good for light stuff, but if you want a heavy crunch, you're either doing heavy modding or playing another guitar)

    I found all the Parkers to sound thin. I always liked the feel of the neck though. It played well, just sounded thin.

    I played Warrior. Had an endorsement deal with them. They are a boutique company out of Georgia that makes hand made guitars and basses out of amazing woods. I played a 64 Fender Mustang and a 75 Fender Strat both loaded with JB humbuckers and totally set up and worked over. The Warriors killed them both so I switched. Amazing tone and play effortlessly. I got some picks of them and my old rig, check it out.

    nice ...my buddy has a les paul studio that looks very much like the one on the left there.

    reminds me, I still need to finish that dimebag guitar I started work on in 2005

    DOnt think I ever played that guitar. We did track doubling with the Custom up at the top right though.
