I have exactly £300 to spend for a new guitar on saturday, will be getting it from GAK and will only have a couple of hours to try them out so need a short list to try. I'm into rock/metal mainly stuff like Guns, Black Stone Cherry, Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica. Any suggestions appreciated.

A reviewer said High School Musical is "squeakier than Minnie Mouse at the point of climax" and I couldn't help but indulge my imagination.

and yes the pups can handle A7X

although when i went to GAK (as in the actual store) they had none, I had to get mine from the site. You can't really get a better guitar for the money tho, but they might have some sweet preowned stuff.

Moving away from the Washburn fanboy, a Schecter C1 would be a good choice, maybe a high end Ibanez RG series or a mid-range Jackson. Just make sure whichever one you get has a decent tremolo system.

For £300? Don't think so, bub.

A schecter C1 in that price range won't have the duncans or the grovers which the wahsburn has.

The only RG you'll get is an RG320/350 which have a ****ty Edge III and muddy INF pups and are just generally not worth the money.

You can't get a gd mid-range jackson for £300 over here, it's just not going to happen.

And none of them will have particularly gd tremolos.

If you want a cheap guita with a gd trem TS, then get an Ibanez S320 or soemthing. If you don't want a trem, get the X50.

Oh and also, not really being a fanboy here, I had the exact same amount of moeny to spend last october and I did my research, thanks.

I was referring to your title under your av :P

And I'm Australian, I don't have the best idea of what things are like in Britain, so give me a break. :P I'm just not a fan of the Washburn, so if there's anyway the TS could put a bit more cash together, they would be my suggestions.

And aside from all that, the lower-end Schecters are still pretty good, so you should look into those. The Schecter C1 mightn't have the Duncans/Grovers, but it's still a great guitar, and I'd rather it than the Washburn. Just personal preference, the names on the pickups and tuners don't do it for me, I don't buy brand names. I prefer the sound, I prefer the feel, ergo I prefer the C1.

Yeah they're good but you might as well pay the same money for more stuff...and better stuff.

Which would you define as better according to the person making the decision, the brand name on the hardware or how it sounds as a whole?
