I'm in the market for a new guitar and i really can't make up my mind. Some points i want to get a V and the next minute i want an explorer, then i want to get a guitar with a floyd, then i'd just rather stick with a fixed bridge. So here are some facts about my guitar playing.

1) I am not in a band and don't plan to be.... ever
2) I play sitting lots as well as standing (so maybe a V wouldn't be the best even though their not bad to sit with.
3) I play any genre from LOG to Tragically Hip to Hendrix to Metallica
4) I do change tunings from time to time but usually in standard or Drop D
5) Frets aren't a big deciding factor... i've always had 22 but 24 wouldn't be a bad thing. I't just depend how it felt.
6) I'm not to fussy about brands
7) My max budget would be 700CAN

Sorry for the long post but i seriously can't decide. Any help would be great. Also, i don't want active pickups. And i almost forgot my amp. I'm playing through a 30 watt vypyr. I know i "should" get a better amp but i have no need for anything other than an amp that sounds good at low volumes is portable.

I thought that was pretty obvious and the reason for my post haha. But in all seriousness i have looked into esp and ltd but i'm not sure which ones are good and which aren't. I thought that LTD was more low end stuff but thats mostly what my one GC carries and only a few high end esp's. Also there are so many ibanez models, which are good and which are bad below 700

okay so I have 2 pieces of advice)

1. Wait until you know what you want in a guitar before you buy one so you don't get buyer's remorse

or

2. Go to a guitar shop and try everything that seems appealing and find what you enjoy the most
