Jackson Rhoads Pro Series. ITs $650 at musicainsfriend and it has a LFR or OFL im not sure.
#3
I'd recommend an Ibanez RG series. $500, with a floyd rose. I love mine, especially the feel and the thin neck

I STRONGLY STRONGLY Recomend the ESP LTD KH-202 (Kirk Hammett Sig Series). It shouldnt even matter if your a fan of him, its the best guitar you could get for 600$. Everyone who has it (including me) has said its the best guitar for the price. You should definitly check it out.

Ibanez makes some great metal guitars. You might want to check them out and see which one fits your budget.
#7
Yeah I would check out Ibanez, great metal guitars for the money.
You and I are mortal, but rock n roll will never die.

I would strongly suggest saving a bit more so that you can buy a guitar with an OFR instead of a licensed one.

IIRC Schecter makes a Hellraiser with an OFR for about $850.

Gear:
Fender CP Jazzmaster
Schecter PT Custom w/ Dimarzio crunch lab/liquifire
Marshall JCM2000 DSL+Orange 4x12

Ok but what is the difference between an OFR and a licensed one?

In most cases, the licensed will be made of cheaper materials.

TS, i'd recommend a used ibanez prestige RG or S series.

Check out the Washburn HM series. Not sure which model runs up around your price (UK prices are different than US for Washburn).
it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me

Yea.....KH-202 all the way

Great Sound!
Great Feel!
Great Features!
Great Price!

Really is a great guitar...and its about $450
So plenty of spending room to swap pickups or anything else if you want

A licensed double locking tremolo tends to be made of cheaper alloys. The knife edges (the points on the trem that are in contact with the pivots) wear away over time due to the friction everytime you use the trem. For licensed floyd roses they will wear away faster which will mess up your tuning stability as they cannot return to the neutral position (i.e. parallel to body).

However, this does not apply to ALL LFRs as there are loads of decent ones such as the Ibanez Edge, Edge Pro, Lo-Pro, Edge Zero, Schaller LFR, Gotoh, etc. etc.

For a decent metal guitar with an FR for about $650, check out:

- LTD MH-401 ($700 though but worth it!)
- Ibanez S470DXQM
- Jackson DK2M (or DK2)
- Michael Kelly Hex Deluxe
- Agile Ghost Pro

Ibanez Xiphos screams Metal. : D And I think you can get it around $650?


Meh, he might not want the Edge III for his tremolo.


Although...


Still...having...no...issues with mine!
[quote="'[VictorinoX"]']You know what? We ARE convincing him to buy an MG Stack. I mean, who wouldn't want the CRUSHING OVERDRIVE, BRUTAL DISTORTION, BRUTALLY CRUSHING OVERDRIVE, and CRUSHINGLY BRUTAL DISTORTION, with built in digital effects!?
