I'm looking at buying a new 6 string for playing fast metalcore, melodic metal, thrash and just fun shit. It must have a floating tremelo cause playing pantera is fun! I want a nice sounding guitar for all aspects of playing too. Future plans for it will be putting some BK painkillers in there (unless it just sounds wicked from factory!?)
My thoughts are between an Ibanez RGA420Z, Schecter Blackjack ATX C-1 FR or the Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR...
These are my thoughts of guitars. Please give me your opinions on them if you can and I'm open for more suggestions of types of guitars to look at instead also.
Cheers heaps for your help, thoughts and advice!
for everything you play I think you would really like the Schecter Blackjack SLS C-1 FR
It comes with a Floyd Rose 1000 Trem (extremely stable), Seymour Duncan Full Shred and Jazz pickups. The neck is thinner but still a little thicker than an ibanez and it's satin finish on the neck which for what you would be a big help and if you like single coil tones it has a coil tap. Plus it has jumbo frets and an Ebony board.

I'm not sure what your budget is but when I bought it I paid 900 dollars for this guitar. I wish I still had it but I had to sell it cause my financial situation.
Edit: forgot to mention this guitar also comes in a active pickup version if you prefer to try the actives.
