Hi All,
I'm thinking about buying a second guitar; mostly because my ESP has a Floyd Rose, and I want to play around with different tunings more easily. Here is my criteria--

Budget: $500-600 USD (give or take 100)
Style of music I play: hard rock, metal
Bridge: Fixed no trem

does anyone have any suggestions?
thanks

You should get an LTD without a Floyd Rose. What guitar do you have right now?

Do you like the neck on it?

If so, you should get something like an MH-50NT, or an MH-100QMNT.

Same guitar, no trem.

It's good to be consistent. If you play a bunch of different guitars with different necks, it'll be hard (imo) to become really comfortable with one.

Besides, it's a really nice and cozy feeling being able to say that you play *instert brand here* guitars.

Quit your trolling.

From what I know about C-1s are they are very good for metal, and C-1 Classics kick ass!

It's good, but if you're interested in Ibanez's, I'd rather look into an RG321 or RG2EX/RG3EX. The RGA's have weird Ibanez active pickups (lol).

As always, try it out, and see if you like it.

I think I'll try out the RG321 and the MH100QMNT. I can't seem to find the ltd MH-100QMNT online though

EDIT:
nvm, i found it under MHNT

Don't listen to any of their suggestions, the first act guitars may look crappy but those things really rock. I tell you I've never played a better feeling guitar, the pickups on the thing are high output and really put out. Don't let the price fool you.

TS knows he has an LTD. You don't need to get all bitchy.
