Jari Maenpaa's tone from the first Wintersun album. Holy shit. I was completely blown away the first time I heard Sleeping Stars. The rhythm tone is so gritty. I think it was recorded with an Ibanez...

If you can't go used (for whatever reason) then I would look into the ESP LTD -1000 line. The EC-1000 or MH-1000 would both suit your needs well.

The Iron Label is a decent series, but with your budget you could likely get a used Prestige (which are made in japan). A used Ibanez RGA121 would be perfect for you.

Are you only looking for new,...

BKP Painkiller, Aftermath, or Juggernaught would be a good choice. The DiMarzio Titan is a good and also less expensive choice.

It looks like an RGA121 to me. I'm pretty sure they came in that color in 2007. Great guitar!

I would go for the Jem over the Les Paul copy. It's likely a more versatile guitar as it has a trem, 24 frets, and a middle pickup. Plus a bolt-on Les Paul just seems wrong, lol.

I'm sure he will...

I would go with the RG8. It's the best bang for your buck, imo. It's biggest weakness is the pickups, but by looking at the price of the other guitars you are looking at I think you can afford a...

Have you looked at Mesa Boogie amps? A Dual Rectifier or Mark IV would suit you nicely. Both have great cleans and very versatile distortion.

It's got to be the Ibanez RG2228 (http://www.zzounds.com/item--IBARG2228A). Drop some BKP Aftermaths in and you will definitely get that slow blues tone.

Actually, what you need is a new amp. I'd...

2000 definitely wasn't the best year for Boxsters. For $9,000 you can get a '99 911, if you know where to look :D

The BKP Holy Diver is an excellent pickup, but it costs roughly twice as much as the other pickups mentioned here and is harder to come by. It all depends on your budget and unit availability!
