I'm in the market for a six string super strat shredder kind of guitar. I want bolt on neck, preferably passive pickups (although actives aren't a deal breaker), a floyd, a humbucker in the bridge (I'm not too picky about whether it's HH or HSS), and a thin fast neck. And I'd like to shoot for the $700-$1000 price range. What's my best option?
I've looked at what Ibanez has to offer and I'm a little leery of anything that isn't a prestige. How are the Japanese Jacksons? What about ESP / LTD? Are their other brands I'm missing?
