schecter hellraiser imo.
also, Dan donegan from disturbed plays washburns, for slipknot, mick plays ibanez and james plays fenders with emgs in 'em (which i thought was super cool) which goes to show, put emgs in anything, its automatically badass.
#8
go on craigslist and find a used ibanez or esp. if you wait, you might find a $1500 guitar for something in your pricerange

You traded him a sword for the guitar? You do realize that a smart person would just agree to the trade, take the sword, slay you with it, keep all of the loot and call it a day, right?

....What are they teaching you kids in school these days?!

is 81's/85's good ? for EMGs on the schecter C-1 FR (im looking on craigslist..lol)
#12
EMG 81/85 is fine. EMG 89 sounds just like the 85 except it can be split into a single coil for cleans or whatever. The Ibanez RGT6EXFX posted before is also great if you don't want the hellraiser.

i dont have real preferences, im getting a vypyr 60 tube amp for my B-day, and i know i want to play tons more metal than classic stuff (when i bought the guitar i wanted classic stuff, now i dont), so im trading it in for something else...
#19
it really comes down to personal preference. i wouldnt get it, but it would sound good. the only really sure fire way to decide is to go to a guitar center or store of some kind and play the guitars people have recommended.

EDIT: all of these guitars will sound great, but the biggest difference will be how they play, and how that works with what you prefer. But since you dont have any real preferences, i do ont think you would be diappointed with any of these guitars.

I would probably go for Ibanez S2170FB S Prestige Series it may be a little over your budget but it has the most meatiest sound with a kick ass Floyd Rose set-up!
#27
its not really the point of a budget, its just whats on craigslist/what i can trade my fender for

i think what you need to do is just find out what kind of neck you like. the wizards on ibanezes are definitely an acquired taste. i like the profile of esp necks, but i hate the huge fret wires on them (they just feel wrong to me). if you like the neck on your strat, go with a schecter. my gryphon and strat have nearly identical necks

i really like the neck on my strat

the problem right now is i cant find someone willing to trade for the strat atm

im looking for either one of these
-strat for schecter hellraiser
-strat + vox amp for ibanez prestige
#33
also you can buy a cheap guitar, install with a new neck from warmoth or upgrade the pups or whatever

awesome guitar right here.. there is one up on ebay for cheap..

also like said above.. any schecter
#36
there is so much that you really can't pinpoint it down to one guitar man. I say research some brands, and then go try them at a local shop if they have them. Test it out and find what you like. But I might as well recommend my own guitar, which is amazing for metal and hard rock in general: A ESP LTD EX-401, it costs $600 and is very worth the price. However, if you want a tremolo, you can get the DX for about 130 more.
Set Up:
Guitars:
Schecter Hellraiser C-1FR
ESP LTD EX-401
AMP: Peavey Vypyr Tube 60W
Sanpera Footpedal

One has a Floyd Rose (floating tremolo), one doesn't.

If you want an FR get the FR. If not then don't.
