Hello everyone!
So basically I'm looking for a nice solid body guitar with active pickups, 24 frets and a floyd rose. And I don't want any stratocasters.
So here are the requirements:
Floyd rose
Active pickups
24 frets
Price around 1000$

musical styles?

why no SS shapes?

But theres no reason why i cant be free like a raspberry stuck to the back of a horny elephants ass.

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

Do you have a brand/neck profile preference? Also, that ^.

As above and why only active pickups? I've never found an active yet that I like. They have power but passives have far superior tone.

Every young metalhead needs a shredder guitar as a basis before they branch out to developing their individual tone. I'd ask why if he hadn't specified 24 frets and a floyd, but he probably has a beginner/intermediate guitar that has been outgrown and he wants to indulge.

the first part and the last part are diametrically opposed.


and no, every "young metalhead" doesnt need a "shredder" to find their tone....

Just because you don't like them doesn't mean they're bad. And tone is completely subjective... we don't even need to go into this.

Sounds like you need a 27 fret Ibanez Xiphos



Like, Kickass dude. If I was gonna get a metal guitar I would totally get one of those.

Whoa whoa, you tried the Mockingbird ST? Not active, and only 22 frets (I think), but very much metal. And its not only limited to that.
#16
I don't need any Fenders, don't like them
I like playing metal (mostly Metallica), metal ballads, rock, and bit of funk. Ofcourse I play lots of different music styles but those I play the most.
Active p.u. only because I have an Epiphone LP 100 and it has passive p.u. on, so I want to try actives out ;]
And by the way guys, I was thinking 'bout ESP, ESP M-II NTB or an ESP KH-2 NTB, what you guys thinking about them?

The KH is very overpriced, and is essentially the same thing as the M. Actually, it's the same exact guitar, except that the NTB is neck through instead of bolt on, and the KH-2 has an extra volume knob.
