need new axe for metal, help me out

i'll play your game.

budget: under $1000
favorite artists: Ryan Knight
Preferences: superstrat, decently thin neck, 24 frets
pickups: EMG 81/85 or 81/60, would also be willing to try something with blackouts
new or used: either is fine
location: Boston
current gear: ibanez rg350ex

i need a floyd

one extra thing, i would like the body to be black, and all the hardware be black. maple fretboard if possible, but that might be asking too much.

thank you for your time.

Hate to be that dude, but what amp do you have?

perhaps you could swap out pups or something along those lines and achieve what you want.

$700 isn't exactly "cheap"

But it's apparently pretty nice, I haven't tried one for myself (YET)

If you're willing to give seven strings a try I would recommend looking into the loomis signature schecters (I think theres a black one now, which includes all black hardware)

The neck isn't as thin as ibanez, but its thinner then the blackjack and hellraiser schecters. Comes with a Floyd Rose, EMG 707s, Maple Fretboard, 24 frets, and an extended scale. The extended scale, and smooth fretboard make for a beautiful guitar to play.
