Sorry if I posted some threads like this already but I really need to make sure I am buying the right guitar.

So, I want a seven-string guitar exclusively for metal, and since I don't know much about metal guitars (I am a Gibson guy) or seven strings (and can't test them since I will order it from another country)...I would like a little help from you guys. Just consider the following requirements:

1) 7-string guitar
2) Sounds sweet for metal
3) Is oddly shaped so it has a very metal look (I really dig x-shaped guitars like the Ibanez Xiphos but never played one)
4) Is under 600 dollars on ebay.

Plan on getting it used and don't worry I have enough experience to know when a guitar is in good shape or not, normally I wouldn't buy a guitar without testing it first but will have to do it this time. By the way remember a want a guitar that looks different than the common strat,superstrat,sg,les paul,etc look, something very exotic and evil-looking. I heard EMG's are the perfect thing but I am no expert at the genre, don't care what brand, it's just a name. Thanks and sorry for any grammar mistakes!

what about trems? do you care fore them or would it be better off without one?

Well man...I really friggin hate floyd roses, for real. But I love trems, specially for metal. So I guess I have to get used to locks.

I've got a Schecter Hellraiser C7 and its ****ing amazing. I can't speak for the Damien line of guitars, but it fits around your price range (600ish). Having never used a Schecter prior to the C7 I was very impressed and shocked at its quality.
