Im looking to buy my second electric guitar. i brought my first one two years ago but i find it too heavy and the sound is pretty bad.

Can anyone help find me a guitar???

i would like a light guitar

i mostly play rock and metal but i also like blues

im not bothered about a tremolo.

Look at a brand new Epi Les Paul? They're about 430 squids brand new.

If you want something that is light w/ a smooth neck I'd go after something in an SG Style. If you like something shortscale then try out a mustang.

I suggest you check in the Ibanez section. They make very good guitars to play any style of music and they aren't that expensive. You could get something good with your budget.

EDIT: Same with jackson's guitars.

I think you should go for Jackson, maybe the RR model. It is a very light weight guitar and it works perfect for metal and rock.

Go try a bunch out. I'd check out Washburn while you're at it tho - they are reasonably priced and my X50Pro is stupidly light

I picked up an Epiphone SG for 100 quid or so, around 150ish American, as a backup guitar for our lead player.

I have to say, I'm extremely impressed with the sound. Even if it is an Epiphone, it's light, cheap, and sounds damn good.

You might not find LP's heavy but I think they are on the heavier side of guitars or at least my '02 Gibson LP Studio was. I think you should look into something like the Jackson's recommended already or an Ibanez RG type of style guitar if you want something light and versatile. They have a lot of options and you can do a trem model or fixed bridge. The prices range from dirt cheap to expensive so get busy browsing and go play some guitars like some other people have already said. Have fun and good luck!
