honestly you will find quite a few guitars having low quality even in that price range some bit, but there are some that would fit having a good edge or OFR.

a low quality flyod is worse than you thing for tuning stability. i had a guitar for a few years and took the hardware off so i could do a refin, the part of the bridge that comes up (the knife edge) where it intersects with the post to find it chewed up like a drunken 15 year old tried to do some machining with a dremel.

so thats my experience.

i am not familar with ESP/LTD,

but my point is just to get a good trem otherwise its a headache.

well if you are willing go used you could get an ESP MII. Best guitar I have ever played. Also, check out the ESP LTD MH-1000. That's about 750 usd I think.

English, please? And Christmas is a time for selflessness and sharing, not buying your own stuff.

I'd pick an ESP LTD over most other brands with a floyd rose at that price.

Get an Ibanez Prestige imo. You can find a lot used in that price range, and even some new. I got my 1570 for 800 or so new, and I only paid that much because I'm left handed and I couldn't find a used one in decent condition at the time I was making my purchase. Usually a fair amount of Prestiges on eBay for decent prices. I'd check there and on Craigslist.

+1570

Got mine for 650$ cad. Absolutely slays anything ltd makes.

Lol nobody noticed the price,here every guitar (and almost every thing) is x2 so mii is 4 like 1500-2000 usd

Well both guitars are pretty decent. But they both have notoriously cheap bridges.
Also the ltd has the better pickups assuming you play metal.
#14
Yes, just make sure the measurements are correct.
Edit: even the FR Special should hold tune for a good while. Personally I'd trash the original bridge before spending $$ on the upgrade.
