    Lefty metal guitar recommendations

    I am currently looking for a new high end metal guitar, but me being left handed limits my options.

    some options i have come across are the DBZ bird of prey, a couple Ibanez models, I put in a custom quote with RAN today and have no idea when it will be in, also ESP has great stuff but no longer makes lefties and has like a 7k minimum in their custom shop.

    i'd like a tremolo, 24 jumbo or extra jumbo frets, emg 85/81's and a nice appearance.

    if anyone could help me out in my search that would be great. don't about pricing.

    As Techno said, KxK guitars are a great option. After getting the limba/bubinga monster, I ordered two more.

    Bernie Rico Jr (Welcome to The Private Reserve - Bernie Rico Jr. Guitars! - The Private Reserve - Bernie Rico Jr. Guitars) is another option (I own one and have another on the way).

    And if you want something a bit more exotic, Oni is great (http://www.oniguitars.com/), I have one on the way from Oni too (yes, I am a whore).

    KxKs are pretty damn schnazzy.
