Well i am simply looking for a guitar suited well for metal and i don't really know whats hot nowadays. Six or seven strings does not matter and it can be V or Explorer shaped, i don't really care. The pickups should preferably be passive but i can handle active to.

EDIT: Absolutely no Floyd Rose-bridges at all, period!

OK. First off, I would recommend pushing some of that money into a new amp. You'll get better tones, I promise. I would look at Blackstar, Jet City, and Peavey for a good, cheap metal tone.


Now on to your original question.

Do you like your LTD? Cause you could get this for $600, with $600 on an amp. Maybe grab this Epiphone if you don't like the pointedness of the EX. Here's an alternitive for a passive pickup guitar.

As for V's, look here for a passive V, here for an active V, and THIS trumps all that I've posted here, IMO.

Why? He wants a guitar built for metal. I know there's a gear for metal thread, but idk about guitars, so know what you're talking about before you throw stones.

Huh. You don't live in the US, do you? Well, I really can't help you there. Are there any online stores based in Sweden that we could search?

Also, do you have a European equivalent of Craigslist that you could search?

OK, here are a few that I found.

And a little favorite of mine: http://www.thomann.de/gb/jackson_rr5_iv.htm

I used the UK site (I don't feel like translating Swedish) so the shipping/cost in general might be higher.

Its called research...you find good metal brands...look at their products in your price range, pick and choose what you like about each and buy the one with mostof those features...there is also a new thread about this everyday.

Looking for an ESP-LTD EX series is probably your best bet for an Explorer-shape. They go for around €600 to €800 depending on the model (except the EX-50 which is an entry-level guitar), leaving plenty of cash to pump into a good metal amp. That Valvetronix does other tones quite good, but isn't particularly good for out-and-out metal.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.

Well then, what is a good metal amp that can do some nice clean tones?
