Hey guys,
I've got a gibson les paul at the moment and want some more versatility so i'm looking to get a metal-orientated guitar like a jackson, esp, ibanez etc.

Basically I'm looking for a guitar with a good base i.e. body and neck. I must have a floyd rose or other trem system. I'd be willing to spend up to E400 once ive the money but preferably cheaper. I dont mind if it's got crappy tuners etc. coz i want to make it a kinda project to work on over the next few years improving it.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!

A bit over your price range but definately worth it.


'fraid thats way too expensive! I just need a good quality solid base to work off..

then your in the wrong game, that money you spend on upgrades could be used to just buy a good guitar in the first place.

if you have to justify why you modded something you just look silly, unless you want to be the guy who modded a squier "because its the best MIC neck I ever felt hurdurr" and a cheap floyd? Plan upgrading that? thats £200 alone

or buy this:

and be happy.

word on the just buying a decent guitar to start. you're on a hiding to nothing if you don't. As tom says, a decent quality floyd is ~£130 on its own.

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.

Same thing as a 570 with prestige on the headstock and direct mounted pickups... and after a certain year one of the sexiest cases ever.. i just love rubbing my hand on the red interior of prestige cases..

but yeah he should buy that
even if it doesnt come with a case. I'm half asleep and thought he was from europe. Forgot the irish use euros.

you might need a booster in some areas though. heck an indoor aeriel here up north in parts isn't guaranteed to get it

That turns into, what, 450 or 500 american dollars?

Seriously I never see anything that amazing for that low here

Craigslist here sucks, I think.. People overprice EVERYTHING. So nothing sells. And then for the next 14 months you see the same 8 things over, and over, and over, and over, and over....
