PRS Custom 24 + tremol-no?

Ibanez has a range of RGs with a fixed bridge, can't recall the name of the range tho.

Try & find a used one of these, pick any colour but go for the s-duncans! http://www.espguitars.co.uk/guitars...00vbduncan.html

Best guitar around for the money IMO.

Edit: You should get one for £400 if you hunt long enough.

ESP would be a good choice. Possibly a used Jackson.

I played one of the 7 string ones awhile back. I loved the neck on it, and it had the best upper fret access of anything I had played prior to that. Probably the only LP style guitar I'd considered.

Do you have a maximum budget and are you willing to go used?

Ok cool....

Some left field choices:

EBMM Luke

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Music-Man...2185dc3e&_uhb=1

Ibanez Prestige RG2820 (Seriously worth a look at £650...)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ibanez-RG...28a88e04&_uhb=1

Ibanez Prestige RGA121 (Hard tail Arch Top RG might go for a song....)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ibanez-RG...cf420b3d&_uhb=1

I could find more, but I just thought these might be worth consideration.
