Hey guys!

I'm looking for a new guitar to play through my Bugera 333XL. I can save up to about 900 USD, maybe 1000. But I'm not sure what guitar I'm gonna buy for that sum.

I've been looking into some Music Man stuff, but they seem a bit too expensive =/, so I think I'll end ut buying an Ibanez.

I play progressive rock, progressive metal, hard rock, some shredding and stuff like that. I want a guitar with pickups were I can play both silky cleans and heavy leads, and a guitar with atleast 21 frets. And I'm gonna need a floyd rose!

They are good for more than just metal, but it all depends on the series. Hellraisers are metal, but the C-1 series aren't so metal, ie the Classic, Lady Luck, E/A (discontinued).

Flat wounds. Flat wounds on everything. Everything is a little fatter when it's flatter.

Schecter stiletto classic.It falls in at 1000 USD but it's a high quality guitar with a versatile set of pickups.Neck thru with a neck that's thinner than their other production models,a ghoto FR,an EMG81tw/SA/SA pup set with coil splitting on the 81,and an ebony board.

Edit: Damn you Wolfy!!! *Shakes fist*

This sounds like a good idea. Costs what $1000? Something like that. Here it is.

I always praise that guitar since out of all the Schecter production models I've played It's one of the only 3 guitars I actually liked.The neck isn't bulky to me like their other models,and it has nice sustain because of it's weight.
