Check out these and ibanez. I think the best would be jackson though.

Go by feel, mate. Jackson and Ibanez guitars are by far most comfortable for me, ESP close third. Some like the feel of thicker necks that deans and schecters have. Find guitars that you like visually and that have your desired specs (or close to them). Then go to your local guitar shop to try them all out to see which one suits you most. For a hell of a lot of people, its usually Jackson or ESP.

I have a Schecter C-1 Hellraiser and for less then 700 dollars it has EMG active pickups and all the same hardware used on guitars like Gibsons. Definitely better then any Jackson Ive played and unbeatable for the price.

Not true. Alot of people whine because they are use to thin necks. The Schecter necks are comfortable and fast to play on. I'd say check them out for yourself since most people that complain have only looked at them or played them for a couple minutes. I prefer schecter necks over ibanez
#10
I'd look at anything by Jackson, Schecter, Ibanez and LTD in that price range ($~800 to $1100).

Well, my dream $1000 guitar is the B.C. Rich Stealth (the Schuldiner signature model). It's an amazing guitar, neck-thru & all, and it's about the best metal guitar you can get for that range. It has the X2N pickup to, which is undoubtedly one of the best. But this is good only if you just play metal.

Get a prestige.

They seem to both be good guitars. I'd go for the Ibanez myself, but it's really up to you.

Ibanez Prestige RG 1570. its about 800 Dollars. or you could save up a bit and get the RG2550. both are fantastic guitars.

I don't know much about Jackson models, but yeah they would be worth a look.

If you like thicker necks, Shecter and ESP are where you should look

I would vote for Jackson too.

But just remember if you're going for the Malmsteen tone as well, you're gonna need a singlecoil somewhere. Or at least a guitar that can split the coils on a humbucker.

If I had my choice between the two I would take the RG. Why? Becuase I could never just sit down and chill out playin' a v guitar. I've had a few and I love 'em playin' standin up but there were times sittin on the edge of my bed with that son of a bitch slidin' down my leg where I felt like I wanted to bash my head in with it.

Yeah the 3 guitars i'd be looking at would be an Ibanez RG1570, a Scheter C1 or a Jackson Dinky. All are excellent guitars, but they do feel quite different, and whichever has the best feel to you, you should buy. If I had the cash, i'd own all 3.
