I play mostly classic metal. Some examples of bands would be Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, and Dio.
My price range is around $500, maybe $600.
(If I left out any important details tell me. )

What kinds of guitars should I try out?

Pretty much any guitar can do that, so I guess it depends on the shape youre going for. Do you want a tremolo?

PRS SE Custom 22 is what Im thinking for a classic trem, if you want a floating trem, you could go with an Ibanez S320, the ZR trems are ridiculously good for the pricepoint.

what amp do you have, do you want active or passive (like alnico) pickups?
You want a floating or a fixed bridge?

Passives come with either ceramic and alnico magnets, FYI.

Alnicos have a warmer sound, ceramics are usually hotter.

Some ESP's might be good for you. if you want a tremolo get a floating...fixed just don't do it. its worth the extra cash

For 500-600 bucks I cant think of any guitars with a tremolo better than the Ibanez ZR floating trems.

The ESP/LTDs with good OFR/LFRs are 800+

What type though? Like a floyd rose or a strat style one?

Also how many frets?
And are you willing to go used?

This guy is thinking along good terms, I would have to say either Ibanez or Schecter, they both provide decent quality for the price being paid.

Wow, I can't believe nobody has said Schecter with EMGs yet. Must be some kind of record.

Jackson many body styles to choose from quality instruments and easily upgradeable,an OFR IS A STRAIGHT DROP IN that's a fact not sure if that's the case on the other brand's.

I would go with a Mick Thompson signature BC, I saw one at the music live show in birmingham uk, for £350, so about $500.
