PRS SE Custom 24.

And Hetfield and Heavy (Metallica and Trivium) both play Les Pauls, are they not metal?

The LTD EX's are not bad though.

If you are wiling to go used, Ibanez RGA121's can be found for around 500-700 on eBay.

this is absolutely, 100% correct.
For example, Dave Mustaine has a signature coffee mix.

Not because they're METAL enough. Of course you can play metal but most of them are 22 frets and also they have bad fret access

I played an EC-1000 (LP shape), it had 24 frets and perfectly fine fret access

I dont know much about ec 1000s i dont like the abalone binding anyway but i used a esp eclipse and it was really uncomfortable for me. 22 frets and fret acces was "ok" but the neck thick for me.

Another guitar occurred to me...take a look at the Epi Prophecy SG EX/GX depending on how much passive/active is important. I think they're like 600 brand new. 24 frets. fantastic access

Yea but i dont think i can find them in my country. mostly we have jackson ibanez schecter cort esp dean bc.rich... brands like them. we sure do have epiphone and gibson here but not every model. (im not in USA btw i live in Turkey.) I play mostly shred neoclassical and also melodic death metal power metal stuff so i need a guitar that will suit those. thats why i need a kinda thin neck.
#12
Thin neck =/= Fast Neck

I can play much faster on thicker PRS necks than horrible stickly Ibanez necks.

thats the S series isn't it? Although the S series is a lot thinner and has rounder horns.


EDIT: Consider a Telecaster? I love tele necks.

Also the Schecter Blackjack ATX is pretty good also. Not paper thin, but basically perfect

Used ESP Horizon if you're lucky enough

Try a schecter. They have somewhat thick necks that still feel good for shredding. problem is, most of them over $500 have actives. i would recommend the S1 or the Tempest and using the rest of the money to upgrade the pickups

passive pickups are not a must but i really want to get a hardtail. btw the washburn is nice but i cant play a guitar with no inlays on the fretboard I had a ltd h-1001 deluxe before and it was a nice guitar but the neck was thick for my taste and i sold it.

Really? I thought it was quite bad.

TS: I'd say go for a Jackson of some sort. Maybe a DK2T?

Would it be a good idea to buy a guitar with floyd rose then block it with a wood? because i cant really like any guitar in this price range that has a fixed bridge

A lot of people say it's a bad idea since it affects tone and sustain. But I don't see a problem with it if the guitar you want only comes in with a trem.

This + infinity.

Those machines can beat any LTD with ease.


Arched top, 24 frets, fixed bridge, awesome fret access, plus if you find it 2nd hand there's a good chance someone popped some seymour duncans or DiMarzio's in there to top it all off.
