After a great deal of thought, I've finally taken the plunge and bought a LTD M-1000 E. I've been playing a PRS SE 'Floyd' Custom 24 for some years now but I wanted something that was closer to being a traditional superstrat with an alder body, maple neck and a rosewood or ebony fretboard. My first thought was a Charvel Pro Mod So Cal but when I tried one, I really wasn't impressed. The DK24 Charvel was lovely but I didn't want gold hardware or a maple fretboard. Although there are things I don't like about the LTD, overall it's just such a great fit for what I'm after. It has the alder body, maple neck and ebony fretboard and Floyd 1000SE bridge. It's not a bolt-on but the set-thru neck gives me tremendous upper fret access without being a full neck-thru, which I wanted to avoid. I don't like the EMG pickups so they'll be changed for passives and I really dislike the pointy reverse headstock, but at the end of the day that's just a minor cosmetic detail. So far, I'm very impressed.

Congrats on the guitar! I had a M-1000 years ago and always found them to be great guitars! How much did that set you back?

Nice!!! I wouldn't care about the reverse pointy headstock. It hearkens back to when the pointy headstock was the shiznit. I still think it is.
If you're having one of those days where everyone is on your case and is just getting on your nerves, it's probably not everyone else
