im looking to get my next guitar?
(as well as an amp, if any of you guys want to suggest any for about £200-£300)

im open to any recommendations
a few things to mention though

im looking to spend up to £700 or there abouts
im left handed, so if you know they produce lefty version, thatd be usefull
i'd like one with two humbuckers(preferably active, so i dont have to change them, or any equally powerful humbuckers)
and a guitar with lots of sustain

i dont really mind about weight, shape (nothing too ridiculous) or if its neck-through or bolt on really.
just any ideas to brood over would be good

Active pickups - Seymour Duncan Blackouts so should be able to cover everything you'd like to play.

There is a hardtail option if you wanted too.

They make it in left handed too!

Not really any point you worrying about what pickups the guitar has (especially not actives) until you have your amp sorted out.

To that end, be aware that a £700 guitar through a £300 amp will sound much worse than a £300 guitar through a £700 amp, especially if you're using active pickups or high-output passive pickups.

Additionally, where do you normally play (home, garage, small gigs, arenas, year-long tour of international stadiums?) and what kind of player are you (beginner, intermediate, advanced, pro, rhythm, lead?)
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
