i am left handed and play metal and shred primarily.

i have been looking at Soloists, RR Phil Collens sig and possibly a RAN custom.

i want 24 frets
a floyd rose and hey maybe seven strings.

if you want a 7 and a left handed guitar, you might need to custom shop. not alot of 7 string models are left handed.
#3
PRS for custom shop dude.
you might not be able to afford a lefty custom 24 though, and I don't even know if they have seven string guitars haha,

Why would you want to spend all of that $2500 all at once on just one guitar? Go like $500 for the guitar and then $2000 for a God-like rig.

why the hell would i spend 500 for a guitar when i have 2 that already are worth more than that?? haha

7 string was optional, PRS lefties are a tad over my budget i believe lol

haha i dont want to be opeth!! i have the laney only thing left is a prs lol, could a PRS do technical metal?

plus i dont really feel like paying that much for a guitar and changing pickups

I would personally go for a RR custom, they are exactly in that price range and meet your specs besides a 7th string.

get a caparison! they fit into your price range and they fill all your specs you need, and they look and sound amazing.

Get the Phil Collens one. The guitar is amazing looking, the finish is definitely sick dude.

Carvin can and will make you anything you want. They are a first class custom shop. I wish i had the money to call carvin and tell them what i want. But i dont. Look at the carvin website. I dont know if a custom shop carvin is really worth the extra money over your schecter. I love Schecter. But it seems you have money to spend, and i am just opinioning on a sweet option.

ive messed with the carvin custom shops for months, but it kills me that they dont have the ultra V in lefty!!!!

they could definatly do shred, but how well could they hold up to metal?

Well i Know they would be great! Have you asked them them to make you an ultra v in lefty? Ask, and if you have the cash, i will guarantee you will receive.

I would go with a Carvin DC-727.

Any guitar can do metal if your amp is metal. I recommend replacing the pickups but no big deal really.

Krzy8 im pretty much in the same boat your in. I got 2100 for a guitar or guitar/amp and im not sure what to get.

Ive been leaning towards Ran for along time cause i think their guitars are god like. I dont know why but for some reason those Ran guitars seem EPIC.

Ive also been looking at Carvin.
But i have no experiance with them. and they dont give me that EPIC feeling that Ran does. I know its just a feeling and Ive never played either but i personally met Jeff Waters and he had his red annihilator ax with him. Even made bit of a sales pitch on it. Looked EPIC.

Im sure ran could pull off the left hand stuff to.

ive checked them out, by it seems to only be sideways progress from the schecters i own.

@ Sgt.Zen- i am defiantly leaning towards ran, for the sheer custom feeling and quality.

I am looking to spend all the cash on the guitar as i am pleased with my rig, might get a budda later in life or a bogner. but i really want "that" guitar, the one you will cherish forever, plus i dont have a floyd rose guitar yet haha

Well maybe leftY's should stick to the piano. Just kidding! it aint our fault you are left handed. Deal with it.

Honestly you're not missing anything with a 7 string trem anyway. It's a bit more difficult to adjust than a 6 string and you can't really use it to it's fullest extent because of the lack of tension in the low B.

Carvin builds an excellent guitar. i woudln't hesitate to buy another one if I had the money.
