Can somebody tell me a good value guitar around $700 with humbuckers and a fast neck. It will be used for QOTSA, Metallica, Offspring, Nirvana, AC/DC, Sum 41...etc

Other than my dinky, this is for my buddy so any ideas?

Schecter...I don't own one anymore but the Blackjack series is great. Very versatile guitars, and they are around $600 I think. Great Seymour Duncan pickups, good looking guitars, and they are definately built well.

Good recommendation, i agree totally. I have a C1 Blackjack, stock Seymour Duncans are very good and versatile, 5 way selector provides a lot of versatility, built solidly, very light, pretty fast neck and stays in tune well. only 550 USD

I just found The Hellraiser C-1 FR, he's right next to me and he says he's getting that


What neck could you compare those to? Fenders, Gibsons, Ibanez's, ESP's???

^yes that guitar owns for the money. But its abtou 100 bucks more than you're limit. Look at the other c-1's from schecter for you're choices.

no, for an ORIGINAL Floyd Rose he says he'll gladly pitch in $100 to his birthday present

The Hellraiser FR looks like it kicks ass, great for the price compared to other brand models similar to it. It should be good with a tube amp tho since it has the EMG's. IT looks like a killer deal i think its around 800 but with the EMG's and the ORiginal floyd rose, and with mi experience with schecter i'd def. put that at the top of the list.

Schecters have finished necks, which is love or hate thing. But other than that, the Hellraiser has a pretty good neck, not as nice as an Ibanez Wizard but better than a Gibson neck. Comparable (but not the same as) a Jackson neck.
IE: Thin neck
It's an awesome guitar, don't forget to ask your friend to try it out

Extremely nice and comfy neck. Perfect Size IMO.

Ibanez S470 if you like the middle single, S520 if not. Great trem, light bodies, thin fast necks. You'd still have a little change left over to change pickups if you wanted.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

The schector is your best bet by far. I wouldnt trade my schector for any guitar. Literally. Ive played 4000 dollar les pauls, Jackson customs, EVH signature models, A Jem and the Satriani model. I'd compare a schector to the Jem, With a finished neck thats slightly thicker. Not much though.
Its got the most playable neck Ive ever used though. The actions low and the frets are high. Legato is a dream on a schector, dont even have to pick the first note if I have distortion and the amp remotely cranked. I can Just hammer directly on and start legatoing. Ive got that exact guitar without the Floyd rose, because I really wouldnt use it. You would seriously be hard pressed to get a more playable guitar, let alone a better deal for your money.
