So the other day I was in this music store because I needed help with the floyd rose on my dean, and the guys at the guitar store blew me off and said "Get a new guitar, dumbass."

So I'm looking for a new guitar for metal that can do classic thrash and death metal. It needs to be tremolo-less and fairly cheap, maybe $500? I really like the feel of telecasters, so if there is anything like that that's good for metal, that would be nice. Thanks

So... the guys in the store told you to get a new guitar, and called you a dumbass, and you actually listened to him?
Do you actually need/want a new guitar, or are you just doing it because he told you to?

Yeah I actually do need one and want one, I don't like messing with the tremolo too much when i change tunings, which I do a lot.

I sense a troll.

I don't know any shop that would say "get a new guitar, dumbass" to a customer
and the customer taking it, any smart human being would tell him to **** off and get the manager involved.

I'm used to it, it's the nearest guitar shop, they've always been total assholes but I kinda just deal with it.

^time to find a new music shop... but search for a schecter. i found myself a used c1 hellraiser that looked like it was fresh off the line. not even a scratch from a belt buckle on it and i paid half of wat it would cost brand new. solid mahogany body with active emg 81/85 will give u all the metal tone ur looking for

Damn, I wish I could have a job being an asshole in a guitar shop...

OT: If you don't really use the bridge, just stick a piece of wood behind the block so it won't move

BINGO!

And while you're at it, get a Hello Kitty guitar and then go back to Asshole Music and do this:

But seriously, you can play metal on any guitar- figure out what features you want for your money THEN look around for what's in your price range.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

You could always block the bridge or get a Tremel-no, the tremel-no would allow you to basically turn the tremolo on and off to facilitate a quick tuning change if you don't need to use the trem in the new tuning.

What you need is a new amp


I can't tell if your being serious or really are stupid. regarding the issue here. I'd take your dean to a luthier? and he'll fix any issues you have with it.
wut.

The guys in your music store are ash-holes.
Don't listen to 'em.
