anyone know of any high end metal/shred guitars that are KINDA strat shaped but a little more badass like the Schecter Avenger?

Preferably with 24 frets and emgs.... I already have a schecter and i want a guitar with higher quality.

we need a budget as we can suggest somthing from about £200 upto £4000, and we need to know what amp you have as you're amp could be letting you down
#5
ESP Horizon Custom, ESP Horizon FR-II, Jackson SL1, Ibanez RG3520ZE, Ibanez S5470 Prestige are great guitars when you high end gear.

Though we need a budget.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

i like bullet for my valentine, as i lay dying, and war of ages... my amp is a peavey 6505+ and i love the thing. My schecter sounds great but it doesnt have the playability of high end guitars from companies like jackson or ibanez. I also am looking for a shape thats not the standard strat shaped guitar but also not some flying v or explorer, thats why i liked the schecter avenger

i know i seem like an idiot but i want them to be shaped a little differently/ more metaly. I KNOW that those are absolutely amazing guitars but i just hate standard looking guitars. Thats why i liked the schecter avenger so much.
#14
You clearly know nothing about guitars...

It would really help if you told everyone more specifics to what your looking for so far from what you've said

24 Fret
EMG's
Kind of Strat Shaped

Thing you should add: Neck size, Bridge (Floyd or fixed or other) and possibly body wood, or neck material.

and what exactly is your price range? high end guitar could mean alot of things?

1000-2000$ what?
#16
i own a schecter with out a floyd, and a jackson with one, i like both but would prefer without a floyd. i would like the guitar to be around 1500 as i said earlier but i am willing to save up more money if I have to... and yes you are correct I dont know as much about guitars as other people... thats why im asking here.

If your on a buget. Jackson soloist, dinkys Or esp M Or MH
Gibson Thunderhorse
Jackson RR24M

Maybe check out something by DBZ? The Halycon or Barchetta might suit you, although I still can't see why you'd give up most great guitars out there just for one that looks off shape and "more metaly."

DBZ Barchetta, definitely. Maybe even a Bolero or Bird of Prey?

I really don't understand... You keep saying "like an Avenger" - If you like the Avenger so much, then why don't you just get one? It's well withing your budget.

The only other stratish shapes that come to mind are an LTD F-something, or an ESP Horizon III, the latter of which is definitely not in your budget, unless you go Edwards.

Also, @shredmaster12, I'm sorry, but those DBZ headstocks are just fugly.

by far without a doubt if you want a higher quility guitar get the washburn heavy metal series wm526 my friends has one and he let my play it. the neck is so smooth and fast. and the notes are so clear with gain as high as it will go. i have a guitar like the esp horizon. but with reverse headstock and floyd rose. and the washburn would straight up murder my guitar.
