    Guitar thats good for metal for around 1350

    I prefer super strat style shapes like Ibanez and Jackson

    itl be used primarily for death metal.

    Trem? Woods? Pickup routing? Number of strings?

    PRS SE Torero, Charvel Pro-Mod would be my choices, assuming I wasn't going to build a Warmoth (tough to do for you being in the UK.)
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Schecter Loomis, Ibanez UV, ESP Horizon, EBMM JP6/7... the list goes on.

    If you go used, a Caparison Horus, a J Custom of some sort... again, the list goes on.

    Of course I have no idea if you want 6 or 7 strings, trem or fixed bridge, etc.

    1350 is a big budget, it's a buyers market out there at the moment and there are some real good instruments going for real good prices. For a start I'd definitely look at buying used as you'll straight away get more for your money. But as the other guys have said, we need more specifics on what you're looking for. Do you want a trem? Do you prefer certain brands? Do you want certain woods?

    With that money to play with you're in a strong position though. Me personally, I'd look at getting something USA made like a EBMM or high-end Jackson.

    If you like the idea of a 6-string neck-through superstrat with dual humbuckers, 24 jumbo frets on a shredder's neck, and an original Floyd Rose trem, then check out the Jackson USA SL2H. Incredible guitar, IMO.

    Gibson | PRS | Jackson | Fender | Dean | Carvin | Warmoth
    Fractal Audio Systems | Marshall | Fender | Boss
    Ernie Ball | Dunlop | Elixir | DR
