Hi All,

Just about to spend my guitar fund from my BIG 40 and wanted your opinions on my next guitar.

I did want Eddie's Wayne signature guitar but its out of my price range.

I have got it down to 2, Musicman Luke with Piezo and an Ibanez S5470. Thinking of going with the Luke but am a bit worried about the tremolo and it not holding tune. Also heard that the frets wear out quickly.

Any guitarists out there want to comment

Cheers Richard

Well, I was waiting to see if someone else with more experiance would comment , I get impatient though so Ill give it a shot for you. Im not familliar with that guitar and need to work on other stuff right now , so the frets I have no idea, its been a long time since Ive been a serious player but most "tremillo" ive seen is electrical as opposed to mechanical-Type of wave generator that when used correctly can really be awesome or interesting at the least. so in that regard I wouldnt think it staying in tune would be a problem. Even spring loaded bars , tend to be strong at least on Fender guitar's so unless the guitar is a piece of junk , I wouldnt worry about it.- I would think unfortunately It would be hard for the "band" to comment for liegality reasons- Dont know.
