... but I don't find many which fit my specs.

Those specs are:
- neck-through construction
- jumbo frets
- Original Floyd Rose tremolo

Price: up to ~900€

The only guitar with this specs which I can buy in the shops around here is the B.C. Rich Mockingbird ST.

Do you know any other guitars in that price-range and with the features I want?

Umm a BC Rich ASM Pro is worth looking at although it comes with active EMG pickups which aren't going to be sounding the best with your Vypyr.

So... Whats wrong with the Mockingbird? It is the most versatile, best sounding, best features, guitar in the entire BC Rich catalouge.

Just wanted to know what other guitars with OFR exist out there at this price-range.
Looks like B.C. Rich is the only brand which offers that.

BTW, I like the Mockingbird ST quite much.

Well, have you played one?

Why don't you go any try one?
Abuse the hell out of one in a store for 10 mins and see how it hold up...

Good idea...
And if it stays in tune and they don't ban me from the shop for abusing the Edge III, I'll think about getting an Ibanez.

EDIT: Also, what about the ZR trems on the Ibanez S-Series?

I have an edge III, and it works fine. For some reason, it works best if its pulled back a little bit more than recommended. btw, the xiphos is awesome!

The edge III isn't that bad. Mine handles daily abuse and it stays in tune great. Just has to be set up right...which from the store it probably won't be.

The ZR trems are probably better than an Original Floyde Rose..IMO.

Do you have to have a set neck? You can find a lot of guitars with bolt on necks that are very great guitars in your price range.

Well, I'd prefer to have a set neck.
But, anyways, could you give some examples for those great guitars with bolt-on necks?
