I play metal and am looking for an aggressive tone and great playability.
I've been playing guitar for 4 years and I am going to save up to buy a new guitar. I do not like the wood and useless tremolo on my Ibanez RG120.

What has:

- A really thin neck
- 24 frets
- a body NOT made of agathis or alder
- Either a double locking tremolo system or not floating at all
- Good, high output stock pickups
- A superstrat, explorer, random star or V body shape
- Jumbo frets
- Two humbucking pickups [HH, but I don't mind HSH]
????

Price range - £300 or less. I can stretch to 350 if the guitar is really good.
New or used? NEW
Location? Who care? I'll get it off of an online store. There aren't any good music stores near where I live anyway [googled it]

there is no way you'll get a guitar that fits them specs for that kinda price.
just save up some more and then buy a good one, rather than waste your money on a mediocre one

Nah I'm not buying used.

Maybe if I save even more, do you guys think an Ibanez RG370DXZ is a good buy?
I'll go read reviews :p

If you want a guitar for that price range, it will be quite a while to find. I think an Ibanez S series is light and has a pretty thin neck/body. You may want to look into them.

Ibanez RGR321EX. It's well within budget (£280) and the fixed bridge means no crappy locking trem to have a headache over. It has a very thin neck and the pickups aren't bad. it also looks really good. The extra cash from the £350 max budget could be used to get some fancy pickups for it too.

EDIT: You won't get a guitar with a good trem system at 350 quid. I would personally go for a fixed bridge.

washburn x50pro?

Not certain how thin the neck is, but it more or less ticks the other boxes (the pickups aren't super-high output, but the bridge pickup is reasonably hot).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
