Iso of New axe.

Copied this from a different thread.

Noobs - yes that would be me.

Budget? - 500 to 700

Favorite Artists? - Alot of them. From modest mouse to Slayer
Preferences? - Im looking for my second guitar looking to move up. Right now i have a ltd ec 100qm with 2 gfs crunchy rails. I really like it. But im open to anything of quailty.
Pickups? - I like humbuckers but never really tried much else so open to anyting.
New or Used? - Rather used actually save on the cost.
Location? - Im located in houston texas.
Current Gear?[/COLOR] - Esp Ltd ec 100qm with 2 gfs crunchy rail pickups. Ronald Micro cube amp.

the reason im posting this is because im looking to buy a new guitar. When i say new i mean new to me. I want something versatile. I have done research just wondering what you guys might think. Some good brands i have never heard of or good models or whatever you know. Open to all ideas. Thx alot.

*edit* Getting a fender mustang II amp.

Brands to check out: Godin, G&L, Reverend, Fernandes, Richmond Guitars Canada, Hell, Malden.

(However, as others will surely point out, you might be better served by getting a new amp.)

They ARE good, aren't they?

I still haven't decided which one to get. The same could be said of Godin and G&L...

I've recently looked into Godin and I am in love. I know I'm going to get at least 2 in the future. Seriously great company. Way better than G&L (which I actually kind of dislike).

Double Agent, Reeves Gabrels sig II and/or the Rick Vito sig lead the Reverend competition for me.

For Godins the Progression Plus, Freeway SA, Velocity, Redline HB or Passion all have my attention...not to mention things like the Richmond Belmont and a couple of Seagulls.

G&L invaders, a Legacy like yours, the Comanche, and one of those artist prototype ASATS all have my attention.
