I really want a new guitar.
I formerly posted a thread about the ESP Viper 500.
I've changed my mind, i really want a new guitar that'll play Metal(core) well with a STANDARD trem no locking just a wammy bar but i'm finding it really hard to find a guitar that suits my needs.
My budget isn't brilliant i'm willing to pay up to £650 seeing as i'm only 16.

Any recommendations please ? would really help out.

When you say standard trem I assume your talking about the vintage style you get on guitars like a Fender strat?

If so I think you'll have trouble as most 'metal' guitars will have a locking floyd/khaler trem or be fixed bridge.

Edit: What about an Ibanez SA series, they have the SAT bridges. I've not played one so i'm not sure how good they are

Yup i know.
I've heard how hard it can be changing tunings and just a set of strings aswell.
I'm often changing tunings and dont like the idea of taking hours to change a set of strings.

But thanks

Ah thanks the SA Series look really nice. With the non floating bridge.

yamaha pacifica 812v? those things are great, if you like superstrats. you could probably change the JB to something a bit more modern metal-sounding (bareknuckle ceramic warpig? no idea, to be honest).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Ibanez SA series?I have one, it's pretty good.Very light, versatile and has a fast neck(You might not like it though). Only drawback is that the bridge doesn't holds tuning very well.I don't know about the newer SAT Pro bridges though, I'm using the SAT30 bridge.

If you want no trem, the Jackson DK2T should be an option, or maybe a used PC3 (Wilkinson tremolo). Charvel Model 1s also had standard trems and were great guitars.
#12
^ i thought some of the PC3s had jt580LPs? or did some have wilkies?

Get a Jackson Dinky!

He doesn't want FRs.

What about the Parker P-44?

PRS SE Paul Allender custom, pickups handle high gain well and the trem is a fender style. Sounds/looks great! Oh and it stays in tune, I've divebombed the crap out of it, and it hasn't gone out of tune once on me.

That prs is the only good suggestion i've seen here, they've got great tone, but that whammy thing is a bad idea, it's tough to stay in tune with a standard whammy...
#18
prs ses have good tone now (with stock pickups)? o_O

I think it sounds good. I uploaded a video to show how it sounds. I also uploaded another video on the same setup to compare, its a cheaper guitar but it has EMG 81/85s. Both guitars have the same strings (.10 ernie balls), the guitars are run through a boss pedal for distortion and right to the amp for the cleans.

I really like the Paul Allender, it feels unique because its a PRS type guitar thats metal and has the cool bats and it's purple hah. Although I'm not so sure I agree with the fellow who said it stays in tune if you go nuts on the whammy bar, I rarely use mine anymore because I found that it goes out of tune a bit (I don't consider it a problem though, it isn't that bad).

Hope that's useful!

Well, there was this time I play dive bombs and still retain it quite well. Of course, three more divebombs and it's out of whack...

You can also go with Ibanez SV if you have the moola.

no worries, if you like it that's fair enough.
