check out ebay for some cool guitars, but be careful as you probely know sum people are ripoff scum so buy frm ebay shops. Epiphones are good. Shine's are good. Ibanez are good. b.c rich, now theese guitars look cool and sound good so i would go for one of theese. Jesus looking back at this message i realise how much of a cocky bastard i am. oh well...

It may not be a LICENSED one, but it is Floyd-style.

hell no if you want a epi go for the custom or the les paul classic plus preferbly the latter. Possibly a mustang for those with smaller hands. Rhoads rr3. Good luck on choice making

Ibanez only use Egde trems on their guitars, the RG1570 has the Edge Pro. I second the Epi Les Paul Custom

I just got a fender tornado GHTT for giggs and its nice for 625$ and with a prineton chorus DSP for 500$ it's a pretty good combo. But I realized that my old fender bullet and my squire as good as this one because I smashed those fu*$@#'s so have fun making your decision.

oh and read this because its 5 in the morning up her in michigan and I've benn on the computer for two days straight.

ok, since nobody listened to my schecter c-1 classic idea. Here are other ones.

Schecter C-1 CLASSIC (sorry i had to say it)

Scehcter Artist Limited Edition- Only 450 and way better than an epi custom (i no, i had the epi and tried the schecter)

Fender classic 50's, 60's or 70's strat- pretty nice i suggest 50's with 2-tone sunburst

Fender Highway 1- ok, but the finish wears off quite quickly i prefer the 50's ec, and the deluxe players strat.

Agile 3500 w/ SD's- So much better than the epi you wont believe it. IMO the epi pickups are horrible, the guitar is only good if you upgrade them.

theres nothing wrong with the edge pro, It stays in tuen no matter how much abuse u give it. its good unless ur changing tunings.
