Schecter. Not sure how much they are down under, but I'd reccomend the C-1 Hellraiser or the C-1 Hellraiser FR if you're into that sort of thing.
Gear:
Gibson Les Paul Custom
Epiphone EDS-1275
Epiphone Les Paul
Schecter C-1+
Peavey Delta Blues

The shape depends. The shape that I love is a strat shape. When I see a kelly 3, or weird shapes, I just don't like it. So my recommendation is an Ibanez RG2570. Perfect for shred, metal, for everything actually.

not all the time. though it depends on whether you like to change tunings or not
#10

im thinking RG its on my list cept for the 'shape' but that will be it if i cant find a 'shape' guitar

save up around $1200-$1500 and buy a pro series jackson... seriously.

otherwise you've got your ibanez icemans and what not, but the pickups are trash. Schecters are good and beat ibanez in the same price range IMO. But saying that i'd go for the jackson over the schecter lol.
ESP CUSTOM SHOP HORIZON
FENDER USA STRAT
JACKSON DK2M
Peavey 5150ii w/ Marshall 1960DM cab

If you want 'shape' and metal...

Get an Epiphone Explorer and swap the pickups. That will be less than $1000 AUS and will be a kickarse guitar with 'shape'

Even a G400 with a pickup change would be a good guitar for less than 1000.
