Lol, are you serious? He could get an Ibanez for around $800. Look into the S and RG series.

If you're after something with a fast neck and a locking trem, look into some of higher end Ibanez RG's, 1527? or something like that. Jacksons are quite renowned for "shredability" And you can look into some ESP/LTD's at the 400 series and above.

Those tend to be the main contenders.

the usual suspects have been mentioned already
Ibanez rg1570
maybe look at some of the S series. you might want to change the pickups on them though.

Jackson guitars seem ok but the decent ones cost a fair bit. plus they're only really good for metal. (shred isnt always metal)

ESP may be out of our price range, if so look at ltd. However these are like the jacksons, only really good for metal.

Pantera may not have been a shred band, but MAB himself confirmed that Dimebag could play his (MAB's) stuff, so Dimebag = shredder.

If you don't believe me check his obituray to Dimebag.

And yes, Rusty Cooley now has a signature Dean.

I maintain that you do not need a special guitar to shred, you need to practice, I'll bet I can shred on an ES-335.

Ibanez is your best bet. A Jackson wouldn't be too bad either.
