Hey UG, I've been looking around for a new guitar recently and I'm wondering if you can find a guitar that well suits my needs
Im looking for a V shape (rhoads is preferred)
I'd be most comfortable buying off of GC used.
My budget is at Most $400
A decent floyd rose
Any type of pickup is okay
If you guys could help me that'd be spectacular, thank you all!

if you're going used, one of the older MIJ jacksons is probably the thing. Assuming it'll be under budget (I guess it might be, but I'm not to well up on USA pricing). the floyds on the bolt-on models are only middling, though, ideally you'd want to swap it.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I picked up a near mint 2010 MIJ RR3 Eerie Dess Swirl paint, Seymour Duncan JB/JM with original Jackson Bloodline case at my local GC for $500 she's nice if you can find one you won't be disappointed, the licensed Floyd is decent and I have not had any issues with it though I do plan to swap for an OFR eventually. Unless you really use the tremolo heavily you may find you don't even need to replace it, I just really prefer real Floyds

Here are a couple of shots of it:
