recently iv been thinking about getting a new guitar but this time with a whammy bar as none of mines have 1. i thought an FR would be good but it seems like it would cos alot of problems too, i do change tunings sorta regularly.

my budget would prob be anythin up to £500 ish, however id like to stay under that. it would be for playing near enough all metal.

can u recommend something please? i was thinking Schecter or Ibanez but im open to suggestions, thank.

If you go Ibanez, make sure it has an Edge/Lo-pro/Edge Pro. The other Ibanez trems arent much good.
As for changing tunings, keep the guitar with the FR in one tuning and use another for different tunings.

Did you know that you can whammy without a whammy bar?

In all seriousness, Jackson trems are great in that price range, but I hate the shapes and necks.

I'm referencing a stupid video.

But yeah, I was sort of hinting at avoiding Jackson- they just feel uncomfortable to me. Used Ibanez RG1570?
