OK, basically, I dont necessarily need all of these features, one, or more could be left out, they are all preferred tho...

guitar model being as cheap as possible
having a stable floating trem ( ZR for example)
24 frets (pretty much a must)
ebony or maple fingerboard, but rosewood is ok too
shape like rhoads, flying V, explorer, superstrat acceptable too
EMG active pickups


I`ve spent a lot of time researching, either I find a perfect Ibby (S series), but it doesnt have 24 frets, or a jackson, but its got a licenced floyd trem. I know they are stable at first, but that goes away with time. I`d also like to mention that my fetish guitar is RR24M or RR24, but its not available in my country, and i also cant order off of ebay... My budget atm is around 750 euros, but i should get more money soon, so guitars way under the budget are fine, and some that are a bit over too.

Cheers!

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

well the DKMG model seems pretty appealing, i like the looks and stuff, the floyd is the only back-draw... And i heard mixed opinions about them... the bad thing is, i cant just go out and try guitars, cause i live 100km from a city that has couple of good stores...

The JT580LP is steel of a decent hardness. It's decent enough to last a few years, and it's about the same size as an OFR, should you choose to replace the trem.

Ive had pretty good luck with Agile guitars, Kurt the owner is a pretty sweet guy as well and the things play way above their price range in my opinion.

right now hes got a V guitar called the Agile Reaper Custom Black Chancery. it has EMG 81/85, ebony fretboard, 24 jumbo frets, uniform profile neck, Grover tuners, and a licensed floyd rose double locking tremolo system, Mahogany body and mahogany set neck. Its black and on the last page I believe of his website.

for 599 US Dollars it wouldn't hurt to look into, might float your boat/catch your fancy lol.

All of the new Ibanez S guitars introduced this year have 24 frets.

People, he's in SERBIA. Agile aren't a good deal if you have to pay that much shipping.

@ThePushMan Yeah, I`m aware of Agile guitars, and i love the looks of the reaper custom, especially those inverted cross inlays (dont judge me). I even contacted them, they said they wont even ship to Serbia -.-

@Offworld92 Yes, I read that on the net, but there arent any on my stores site, and i havent managed to find them. how can you differ them in catalogs from the old models?

Tho I have a friend in America who will come here, but that will be in like a year or two, and thats just long... :S

@Linkerman It looks nice, but its not sold by any of guitar stores in my country Yes, i live in a sheethole...

I like the ltd M-1000 too, the one with trans black finish and floyd rose, but its not as cheap...

Any more suggestions...?

Together with the amount of frets, Ibanez also changed the modelname. They basically added 100 to the old number of the model, so the 22 fret S470 became the 24 fret S570 for example.

About Kramer, I`d rather have a Vanguard, that was my cheap choice a while ago, but you cant seem to get any of those here... I see they have some new design for it, i think it looked better with inverted headstock..
#18
the upside down cross inlays are bad ass thats why i mentioned it. totally lame they wont ship there though i mean it gives it as a country option... should of done more research before i suggested sadly dont know any Serbia postal codes though in my defense

so ever find anything? im sort of shopping for a new guitar myself with similar specs thats why im asking.
