I'm looking for a new guitar for playing metal.
Preferably with an Original Floyd Rose.
22 or 24 frets, it doesn't matter.
Ebony fretboard is preferred with no fret markers would be perfect.
I prefer passive pickups, but actives are fine.
No V shaped guitars.

Anything like this on the market?
I found that Rondo Guitars sells a lot of guitars close to what I'm looking for.
But no match.
Are there any other online stores like Rondo?
Have any suggestions?
I can up my budget if there's a guitar with everything I'm looking for.
esp MH-1000? more around 800-900 tho

Ibanez RG7621
Ibanez RG121
schecter probably makes what you're looking for. I don't play metal anymore but their guitars are still awesome.
PRS SE Singlecut, blue with stoptail (my baby)
Line 6 Spider III 75 (shut up)
Epiphone Les Paul standard
Cheapo Yamaha nylon string
even more cheapo Fender steel string acoustic
For your budget, minus almost everything else except good for metal, I suggest the all around great Schecter C-1 +. I can say, it can do what you want it to, as long as you know what to tell it.

But really, you need to try that guitar, it's pretty sweet.
Save a trip to the RT!

Top trolling abilities.

God dammit you had me 10/10
how do you feel about rosewood fretboards?
cause ebony fretboards are hard to find.....

So you're gonna end the world soon?
Interesting deduction. That was my original intention.
Well don't.
Well that's okay. OK I will not.

Earth's fate saved in sig = EPIC WIN!!!

Maybe? Its the guitar I use, its amazing, great for metal, great neck , great for shredding. So yeah.
Panties 'round your knees
With your ass in debris
Doin' dat grind with a push and squeeze
Tied up, tied down, up against the wall
Be my rubbermade baby
An' we can do it all

My way - your way
Anything goes tonight
i just bought this today, so it probably won't come until friday, but its currently $400 off the list price. So unfortunately i can't give you my impressions of it.

If you can deal with the fact that its a korean guitar (which doesn't mean much anyway) then its got everything you're looking for. OFR, EMG's, 24 fret ebony without inlays.

plus it comes with a hard case. Usually the thing is $900, but i guess its on clearance now ^_^b
I would look into this:
It's on sale and it's a killer deal. The guitar costs $850 and the case is $130 individual. So you're getting it for about half-price with extras.

Also check out the LTD Deluxes on Samash. They're having a sale and the Deluxes are around $600.
