Ok i am selling my fernandes monterey elite with the old sustainer on ebay. I want to get something around the same price im selling it for. currently im looking at- jackson rr5, esp ec-500, esp dj-600, gark kramer crusader, esp ex-500?, old 80's kramer barretta, and an edwards lp. i play mainly metal and like to play fast, i do play other stuff but im not doing shows so i dont care if it doesnt sound good or not. also any other suggestions of older 80's shred guitars will be appreciated. ive played many guitars and still dont like shecter, ibanez, dean, or bc rich so get those annoying suggestions out of the way early please.

if you like the crazy 80's guitars, they go for cheap all the time. my guitar store has a charvel with two EMGs for 200$, only because it has a second pickup. people went mod crazy on 80's guitars, so you could pick one up for fairly cheap.

examples:
Charvel:
Ex. 1
Ex. 2
Ex. 3
Ex .4
Ex. 5

Kramer:
Ex. 1
Ex. 2
Ex. 3
Ex. 4

charvel or kramer were probably better quality in the 80s but a lot of them have probably been beat up and thus not so great anymore, so unless you can get a good up-close look at it ( not off of ebay ) id go for the RR as i love Vs.
