So I'm getting a new guitar in a couple of weeks and I'm undecided on what to get.
I've been looking at this Jackson Small Batch RR3 Rhoads with EMG's Electric Guitar | Musician's Friend
but I'd really like 24 frets so I'm also considering this ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000 FR Electric Guitar | Musician's Friend
This one I like too because it has the 24 frets AND has Original Floyd Rose AND the price is right. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Schecte...218-i2172387.gc
I like playing all kinds of metal which is the problem! I can't out which guitar to go with because of the wide variety I'd like to play. I think primarily I'd be play shred/thrash metal type stuff but sometimes I really get into that Ritchie Blackmore mood and I spend weeks playing that classic metal stuff. Obviously these are both very different sounds so far versatility I'm also considering an American Strat or a Les Paul.
I'll be playing through a Line 6 Spider IV 120W (please don't bash on my amp trust me I've heard from everyone how shitty it is but I can't upgrade that right now)
My price range is right around $1000 as you can see from the guitars I'm looking at.
Ever think about getting the Alexi-600? I mean there is like two downsides to it. Single Pickup, and FR-1000, but it is a RR Shape, 24 frets Ebony fret board.
ESP LTD ALEXI-600 Electric Guitar | Musician's Friend
and a Black one with Sawtooth Shack fin inlays:
