Title says it all. I have 500 bucks, and that one pops out. I play Alt. Rock, Nu Metal, And Progressive Rock. Think I should get it?

i have it, i love it, i got it in a creamy white color but replaced the stock bridge humbucker with a black duncan invader and it resonates well.

i love this guitar, i reccomend it, but also get it set up properly so it stays in tune after whammy abuse

So the strings don't stay in tune too well with the tremolo on this model?

I have an SSS version from 2002, I love it, I can only imagine it being more kickass now with the HSS and coil-tap.

As for the tremolo, I use mine, it'll be fine as long as it's set up right, and even then, if you pull back up past neutral, it'll detune up, countering the detuning down, going back into tune. I do it all the time.

Don't abuse the whammy on it, it's not double locking.

The HSS isn't too great for metal by itself. But for $500 you can certainly get one and then replace your humbucker with a pickup, maybe a SD JB or a DiMarzio Tone Zone or similar.

I love strats, but be aware that you will get a very bright sound for the most part, which is not generally desirable for metal...
However if you like it go for it 'cause strats kick ass.
I'm yet to find one that doesn't play like a gem.
