Well, i have been looking on getting a decent guitar bout over a year and got at this.
Cant give more than 1000 eur/dollars. Looking mainly for a six string although i could consider a 7 string at about the same price.
Need it to be good at thrash/death context and be able to fire away some crisp lead playing. Last thing i need is a floyd as good as possible(well i d like it to be one of the best truth be told).
I was considering one of the cheaps at the ibanez prestige RG line but with the zero thingy and all that im hesitant to hit it. I heard a couple bad things bout the new tremolo. Also i ve come to the conclusion that either mahogany or basswood would suit me fine but i don't know really that much about guitars so any advice would help.
Also i am good if it doesnt have that much good stock pickups but as i said, can't pay over a grand and rly need a guitar with the aspects mentioned above(especially a good floyd or a tremolo that can withstand serious abuse).
Well that's bout it and i hope i'll find a worthy axe with your help
The Schecter C-1 Custom is EUR 1030,- (I know you siad "not over a grand, but I hope the 30,- bucks are still o.k.? You might get a discount anyway at local dealers). Original Floyd Rose, Seymour Duncan 59 + custom STB11 pickups. Or if you want actives, I just saw that the Hellraiser C1 in red is 990,- - EMG 81+89 loaded, OFR also.
I really think that in a budget for <1000,-, Schecters are unbeatable.
