well mates, my guitar got recently stolen so Im pretty ****ed, but I recived 2000 USD for the damages and stuff and I need a new guitar, but I dont want to spent all... so gonna reduce it at... 1300-1400 USD


I play "mastodon meets slayer" music, so I need relative versatility and Im thinking about 3 guitars:

-A 7 Strings ( help me to choose the model)
- Bc rich JRV deluxe ( neck thru, OFR, ebony fingerboard, 2 EMGS)
- Ltd mh 400 ( I have abalon inlays on mh 1000)

but I'm open to suggestions coz UG is wise


Floyd rose is almost needed but no fundamental

Arent S series known for their lightweight and poorly bass and tone? I like my guitar with a reasonable amount of mids and bass

I have found there to be plenty of mids and bass in the S series Ibanez' guitars iv tried. Im sure it would be a problem but they use Mahogany to add the lows and mids while still keeping the axe nice and slinky and light. If you ever find the amplified tone lacking then either a pickup swap or EQ pedal may be in order.

Id be majority tempted to sit on that money till the S7420 and RGD7 specs are released as both look rather sweet to my eyes. In fact I'm in the market for a 7 also and these are at the top of my to try lists just as long as the prices aren't horrendous in the UK...which they will be dammit!

I think your best idea is looking into Agile, everybody raves about them that earns USD money.

Also, look out for the LTD JH600, that has alot of bass and mids. Its got everything the NJ DLX stuff has but with a Kahler and a strat shape. It is among the best guitars for thrash, as far as I've played.

LTD 400+ is also the best stuff you can get from LTD, so just look at whichever one has a shape you like, and find the 400, 600 or 1000 model you like.

7 strings, Agile, Ibanez and Schecter come to mind. But Slayer meets Mastadon, you will rarley find yourself using a 7th string.

actually, I like the A sounding on some mastodon tracks... hence de 7th string Idea

I would definately look at Agiles and Schecters.

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

with 1300 USD is better to look Agile? really? I think my budget is pretty wide.... but if they¡re that great...

Have you thought about those?

I can't really recommend those two guitar since I don't like the look of either of them, the viper looks weird, That shape really doesn't suite 7 strings and the Jackson only has one pick up.
Black Knight CF-60F Semi-Acoustic.

Black Knight CP200 (Red flamed maple).

Neck-thru 4 string bass.

Acoustic 6 string.

$1400? You can do much better. From Ibanez, you have the RG1527, RGD2127Z. From ESP, you have the HORIZON NT-7 and the VIPER-7.

prices here're different, much higher, any ESP got a 2000 EUROS price tag, for sure, so Im gonna get one of those guitars and get some good hardware
