Ok people, I play mostly trivium and metallica sort of thing, and my band plays more hard rock sort of stuff

heres the specs:
Nice playable neck
Mahogany or alder (yes I know theyre very different)
No preference on the bridge so it could be anything, floyd, tune-o-matic, wraparound, as long as it's not an edge 3.
under 700 GBP, which I think is around 1000 USD

And I was gonna say an Ibanez prestige...

But seriously some sort of Schecter C-1?

C-1 Standard
or
Damien Elite?

also: Yeah what he ( 'V' ) said, I always liked the look of the EC-1000s

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

Well if you're wanting a trem I would say a Ibanez Prestige S series with a Zero Point Trem. Or even a LTD Deluxe Series, EC-1000

I dont know what your opinion is on B.C Rich guitars is, as I know a lot of people hate on them all the time,, but ive been an owner of an NJ Deluxe Jr. V for the last 6 months or so, and its a great guitar for metal. Its an original Floyd Rose bridge, with EMG's and a mahogany body.

I definitely love the thing...just throwing it out there.

I could drop some guitar brand names here. You should rather be looking at the build of the guitar. Look for a guitar with a mahogany body, maple or mahogany set neck. Just get a guitar that is built well and is strong. Then worry about the pick ups later, that'll be where you can refine the metal sound you are looking for. Just think wood then electronics in that order.

if you can find a used Ibanez RGA121 (or new i guess, it wouldn't matter ) they're awesome guitars! i miss mine worked great for everything really. very diverse guitars for having only 2 humbuckers. plus they're so damn pretty
