Hey, I'm looking into buying a 7 string for Trivium, Dream Theater, and drop A, and I want to spend as little as possible.

I play mostly metal.
Budget is as low as possible, but has to be under ~500 US.
Must be hardtail.
Does not need amazing pickups, as I play through a cheap amp.
I would prefer coil splitting, but that's not necessary.
I can go used.

You deserve some form of awesome reward, but I'm to lazy. Imagine the rest of these:

i picked up an ''infinity'' off ebay for 180GBP but... i havent got to grips with it .. i dont even know the mke, its neck through tho, and it has a floyd... made from canadian ash, maple neck... ect... i want a better one tho..
That pushes your budget but most people like them and would recommend them, and it has a lot of nice features for the price. I'm not personally a fan of Schecter but you may as well give it a try.

This has ****ty pickups and I don't like the bridge that much, but the neck is super fast and plays well. The quality can vary, but if you can find a nice one it's a good buy for a good price.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.

If you resist change, you will be here forever.

Ibanez and pickup swap, non high end schecters feel like plastic and have horrible upper fret access
