Hey guys im thinking of a getting a new guitar. I play metal like lamb of god, disturbed, trivium etc. im looking for a guitar with a locking bridge and trem. my price range is around the 1 grand mark (AUS).

heres the xpt700
the downside of the xiphos is the edge 3 trem...

heres the warrior
this has a bolt on neck which i dont like but it has a genuine floyd rose trem.

so what would you reccommend out of the two? feel free to reccommend any other guitars you think suit my style better. thanks.

DBZ guitars, love'em. Especially their Les Piccolo model.
The Warrior doesn't have a genuine Floyd, it has an LFR...

My question would be, how set are you on having a locking trem?

Otherwise the Ibanez XPT700FX might be something to look out for:


By the way, you are aware that the Xiphos is around 1600$ (AUS), which is a few hundred over your budget.

Also, why not go down to a few local(-ish) shops and try a bunch of their instruments. There's a good chance they'll even have an amp similar to yours, so you can get a good idea of what a particular guitar will sound like, should you buy it.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!
