I really don't like the floating bridge on my guitar, I change tunings way too often to deal with it. I'm planning on selling it and buying a different one. I would like one without the floating bridge, and with passive pickups (I don't like the tone of actives). My budget would be around $300-400, but a little more would be okay if it was worth it. I mostly play metalcore and other metal, so I don't want your standard Fender Stratocaster. So what would be a good guitar without a floating bridge or active pickups?

Bonus points for an extreme shape (Flying V, Razorback, etc), but not too important.

Used guitars are fine.

Do you have a shape preference, or a tone wood preference?

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album

I don't really have a strong shape preference, just something like a Flying V or Explorer would be nice. I guess out of the guitars I've played, most of the ones I liked were alder or basswood.

Hm. Extreme shapes don't tend to be alder.

The other important question: where are you located? Markets, prices and availability fluctuate around the world. A good deal in one country is absolutely not worth it in another.

Look for Epiphones. Maybe a cheap B.C. Rich? I personally think B.C.'s are shit unless you shell out for them but I've had people try to argue with that.

If you don't mind superstrats, I highly consider looking around used for a Jackson DK2T.
