Ibanez, Samick, if you can pick up an old vintage ibanez (early 80's) or a Korean one, I think it was the AS-80 that had the amazing Japanese neck of the AS-200 on a Korean body. switch out the pickups and that is one beautiful guitar-got one on ebay for under 500 not too long ago. I say Samick because there are lots of guitars out there but lots of them, including a fair number of Ibanezes are made by Samick.
You can also find Guild Starfires out there too.
Cautionary note: With a neck that long, chances of getting one with a wonky neck are much higher. That's one reason to find something like a AS-200 or AS-80, the Fujuken necks have good grain and good QC. 3 piece necks are also a good idea for stabilization.
Older Guilds had nice wood, but do be aware of neck issues.
Kurt's played these too, but only a rare one that has a singular feel.
Kurt, care to talk about what you look for and how do you find it?
