I want something with a Floyd Rose (or the Ibanez Edge). I play stuff like Metallica, Megadeth and Led Zeppelin. I can afford one up to about $700. What should I get?

what do you need a floyd rose for? You might wanna just replace the pups in your SG with EMG's and get a high gain amp if you're lookin' to get a good metal sound.

If you play that style of music, like I do, I would HIGHLY recommend Kirk Hammett's sig guitar, KH-202, its the best guitar for 600$ you will ever get. I have one, I should know. Has EMG's, Floyd Rose, 24 frets, what else could ask in a metal guitar? :P

buy a high end epiphone les paul



you dont see many of those with a floating trem....

Look Ibanez or Schecter... both make good guitars

Well, it would help if you gave is specs on what type of guitar you like.

Do you prefer:
-thin or thick necks?
-what shape neck do you like (C or V curve, flat?)
-what scale do you like?
-active or passive pups?

What style of body do you like (Ex. Superstrat, Explorer, V....)

stuff like that.

yea i was gonna say a KH-202 LTD, those are pretty sick for the price and have a rose. you could also do a lower priced jackson rhoads v. but dont put emgs just because people think they sound metal, you only hear the pickups when you have those, not the guitar. do some seymour duncans if you go so far as to change the pickups
#10
go for an esp mate

i got an mh400 about a month ago and its bloody awesome

make sure you get a guitar with emg pickups there best for metal

Thin necks.
I don't know the difference in neck shapes T_T
Long scale (sorry, I don't know exactly how long)
I don't know the difference between active and passive pickups.
I really like the Superstrat body.

Sorry for my noobness.

I use a modded Ibanez SA260FML, it doesn't have the huge intricate flloyd rose, but it does have a floating bridge, i changed the machine heads for locking tuners and it's fantastic, never drops tune.

Great guitar too btw, for it's price range.

the edge trems are not junk, you want to stay away from the trs trems. and as far as ltd esps. if your gonna spend that much money get a real esp. ltd is like an epiphone or squire. they are the entry level version of a good guitar.
