Well I have been deciding to buy my 3rd guitar because I would like 1 guitar per tuning I play in. My Schecter Blackjack ATX will be in Drop D, my Dean from Hell will be Drop C and my next guitar will be standard.

Preferably a guitar best suited for metal. I have been eyeing up the Ibanez Xiphos XP300... Good or bad? Should I save up for the XPT700 instead?

and the Ibanez Iceman's are rather nice, but I would like everyone's advice

I dont mind about floating bridges if it has one or not, doesn't matter.

Price range is about 450 pounds.. which is approx 700 dollars and 520 euros.

Good sites for the UK would beee..

Thanks in advance guys!!

Id go for the xpt700 over the xp300, Ive played it and its a great guitar. I also like the Iceman, but Ive never been able to find one to play

Sorry I didnt give much detail, thanks for helping though

Preferably 24 but if its 22 I am really not fussed.
Set neck is favoured, Neck-thru would be good, bolt on, not so much.
6 strings.
Any shape, and any colour but if its a choice of colours, White
Any pick-ups is fine, aslong as they sound decent.
