My cheap starter guitar has crapped out on me after almost 3 years so I plan on treating myself to a new guitar. I could do with some help though....

Some of the things I would like are:
24 Frets
Floyd Rose (or similar, preferably a reliable trem though)
Good sound mainly for different sorts of metal, particuarly death metal although a nice clean tone as I use that frequently
A thin neck with easy access to the higher frets

My budget is around £500 ($750) although i'm happy to go a bit higher, or lower for that matter

Thanks

#3
Jackson KVX10, KE3, DK2, RR3

I would suggest a DKMG for you
EMG's in a great guitar

Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

Go with something Ibanez. You can't go wrong with them, and you will find one that your going to fall in love with.

The Dean '79 reissues have been getting some good press lately, and are in your price range. I own a couple of Deans, but wouldn't buy an "artist"/"name"/"signature" model. Generally, their best deals are in the mid- to high- end non-endorsed models.

The Malden Subhuman is out of your price range, but its entry-level version, the Stiger SH2 has been getting good press.
