i know there are alot of posts about buyin new guitars, but at the moment i have an esp ltd f-50 which i have put emg 81 & 85 pickups. This was my first guitar and now im ready to upgrade. Thing is i have never played any other guitar, so i dont really know what im lookin for or what brand or type.

I know what i do want, a solid thru body, 500-800 dollar range, and looking for passive pickups, something more verstile than the emgs, besides i can always still play my current guitar whn i need the emgs, tremolo bar would be nice but not a deal breaker.

Mostly play hard rock guns n roses type stuff, but that general class of music. So im looking for sugestions to look at, or maybe what brand is best for that price range. I went to guitar center an was lookin around an realized i dont know wtf im lookin for lol.
thanks

A Les Paul Studio would fit your specs perfectly. Right price range, decent stock pickups. And no other guitar would be better for Gn'R.

You could also look at a few SGs if you think the Les Pauls are too heavy.

If you want a guitar with some balls get a wangcaster
