    Best electric guitars around $600?

    I've decided to sell my Kramer because I hate the Floyd Rose. I want to be able to change my strings easily, simple as that.

    So I've decided to get a fixed bridge guitar, of the through body string variety.
    Are there any recommendations? Right now, I'm looking at these guitars:
    1 Rhoads RRXT | X Series | JacksonŽ Guitars
    2 Dean Guitars - ML 79 - Trans Brazilia
    3 Ibanez DT520FM Destroyer Electric Guitar at zZounds
    but I've also been thinking of getting one of these: : ULTRAV 80S ERA REISSUE V STYLE ELECTRIC GUITAR
    But the Ultra V is a little out of my price range. I'm only getting $250 out of my Kramer, and I will probably get $350 for my birthday/selling my PS2 and some games so I only can spend around $600 on a guitar.

    Does anyone have any recommendations? Testimonials of these guitars? Other recommendations? Also, I'm not looking to get a conservatively shaped guitar like a Les Paul Shape or a Telecaster shape. (Stratocaster is ok)

    What are you really looking for ? those guitars are all going to play differently and sound different. Do you have any idea about the sound you want?

    Used, $600 will get you some really excellent guitars.
    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
