Look at LTD guitars. Judging from your current considerations, possibly the M-300FM because it has a superstrat shape, and has an FR.
Gear:
Fender CP Jazzmaster
Schecter PT Custom w/ Dimarzio crunch lab/liquifire
Marshall JCM2000 DSL+Orange 4x12
Orange Tiny Terror+Mesa Electra Dyne 2x12
Boss TU-2/NS-2/DD-6
Maxon OD808



MY BAND!

i absolutely love my ibanez RG I play it more then my fender strat and it cost a few hundred less.
Blues, classical, metal. Who says you cant love all 3?

Ibanez guitars are really nice but don't get an RG at that price point because the trems tend to be crap. Look at an 'S' series instead like the S470 as you get all the advantages of an RG but with a really top drawer trem unit.

PRS SE 'Floyd' Custom 24 with Creamery pickups
Fender Standard Stratocaster with DiMarzio pickups

How about a MIM Fender Strat?? They are very versatile and should fit into your budget.

Any of the Godin Redline series guitars

No, the guitar was built to play metal. Not pussy ass cowboy chords. They won't work on that guitar. Get a Gibson Hummingbird for that bullshit. .

I would advise getting a fixed bridge if it's your first guitar. Floyd Rose trems can be an absalute nightmare to set up and they can have all sorts of tuning issues with them if you can't set them up properly (and if the system itself is crap). A fixed bridge guitar is a hell of a lot easier to set up and you will have waaaay fewer tuning stability issues.

I'll suggest a fixed bridge Ibanez, a Prophecy series Epiphone (tad overbudget but excellent for the price) or an Agile Reaper if you're in the US (again, excellent for the price) and you REALLY want a Floyd Rose despite their disadvantages.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?
