Hey, Im trying to find a new guitar that really satisfies all of my needs. Do you have any suggestions for guitars that have:
A thin neck
Light weight
Blue or red
Smooth neck
Good standard pickups

I will be playing metal, hard rock. Like Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Ratt, Skid Row, and many others.

Please include a link if you can!

Maybe you could give me a few choices or if your not sure than just a general direction. Thanks.

a Fender Stratocaster 50s. nice neck, lightweight, blue and red colours and the pickups are amazing from cleans to death metal (seriously)
Fender Jaguar 1994
Gibson Thunderbird

Fender Hot Rod Devile 4x12

Zvex Fuzz Factory
EHX Big Muff
Zvex Box of Rock
Joyo Tremolo
Digitech Whammy
EHX Cathedral

Thin Necks and Light Bodies are usually associated with Jackson, Ibanez and Schecter. I'd recommend the Jackson RR Series, they feel really nice.

Interesting, Van Halen original guitar and the lead player in Ratt's were Charvels, Iron Maiden uses Strats and Metallic is ESP I think! Most are bolt-on necks some with SC and some with HB PUs.
Moving on.....

Maiden uses HSS strats as does Kirk hammett(tho for the most part he plays his ESPs).

He means that Metallica uses ESP guitars. Most of the guitars he named have bolt-on necks and some have single coil and some have humbucker pickups.
