Yo, Im in need of a new shred guitar which will be an upgrade from a virtually broken Squier Bullet Strat. $400 Is my limit, posibly could strecth to 450. My amp is a Roland Cube 15.I would like 24 frets, fast neck, rosewood fretboard, and a tremolo bar would be nice. Some guitar's I've been looking at are

i think you should go with a jackson dxmg or, if you can go used, then go used, great used guitars in that price range.
you MIGHT want to consider a new amp, because cubes ARE practice amps, but i dont want to be like the rest of UG and have the instinct to tell respond with "new amp" in every "what electrc guitar thread"

well the schechter has all you need for a shred guitar

Only one of those guitars had a tremelo. Here's some great shred guitars on that budget.

well generally a used $400 guitar could have had the list price of $500-$800.
You just gotta go to guitar stores and find good deals.
Or if you dont mind buying online, then definitely check out ebay, tons of great deals.
But make sure it says you can get your money back if theres something wrong with it.

I'd like to hear more about this as well, although my budget's a little lower.

A used S series would be good. The ZR trems are good and the necks are as fast as greased lightning.

EDIT: BTW, I got mine for $300 shipped.

I got an awesome Jackson DXMG it's the best shred guitar i've ever played. The durability is not so great though.
