Hi, I'm looking for a new guitar mostly because I got a new Job and want to treat myself. Anyways Im Looking for a guitar that can do rock and metal and spec wise:
- 24 frets prefered.
- H/H, H/S or H/S/S pickups.
- preferably non trem
- ebony or rosewood fingerboard
- don't really have a preference on what wood the bodys made of.

So yea not very specific. anyways heres some of the guitars I have been looking at.

PRS Custom 24 + tremol-no?

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

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?
