I'm willing to buy second hand. I've been learning for almost a year now and my current guitar sucks (a cheap copy). I can spend only £350 though. (Looking to play prog-metal (mainly Dream theater) and some heavy metal (maiden, metallica etc.)I live in the UK. Thanks!
You can get an OPM John Petrucci signature model for pretty cheap.
