does shape matter?

EDIT and what amp? what pickups do you want?

EDIT take a look at esp/ltd guitars, try and find one with a floyd and seymour duncans should handle most things your looking for

hoobastank and nickelback don't need floyd roses. For that music, take a piece of wood and slapp ribbons on it. 6 is too much. Use 3.

for 700 pounds you could get a used les paul . . .
Gibson SG Standard
Fender 52 RI Telecaster
'77 Deluxe Reverb
Sunface w/ SunDial
MXR Carbon Copy
Crybaby

He doesn't need a Floyd Rose.

Get an LTD Viper 400 with seymour duncans. Pauli from the Rasmus uses Vipers (albeit with EMGS) and they're ace guitars anyway.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

I third the Schecter, but I also agree that he doesn't need a floyd.

But he wants a floyd.

However, I think Schecters sound much better with string-thru bridges.
