Hey everyone,

Probably a lot of posts like this here, but I'm looking for a new guitar. I am looking to use it for mostly hard rock and metal/shred stuff, but I don't really want a guitar with a Floyd Rose, just because I play in so many different alternate/drop tunings and can't afford to have a guitar for each one. Can anyone suggest me a good guitar for the style/specifications I need? The only real limitations for me are no Floyd, good for metal/shred and within about $500-700, possibly more (definitely no more than $1k though...). Any suggestions are always helpful!!

Thanks a bunch!!

Schecter +1. Really, for the price, you can't go wrong. Try out a bunch of 'em. They're right in the price range you're talking about.
