Basically iv got up to £2000 to spend on a guitar.

Im lookin for a shred guitar, possibly 7string.

Iv looked at the Rustey Cooley Sig & the Michael Batio Sig.

Its hard to find really nice ones so any ideas are welcome but it has to be a shred/ metal guitar

Don't go Dean, please... at least try one first, some love but most hate. Don't take that risk. Try an ESP M or MH.

Personally, i would stay away from signiture guitars.

As you have a wopping £2,000 why not get 2-3 guitars !

Gibson - les paul

PRS - something or rather

I would buy 2 guitars with 2,000 rather than 1 with 2,000

Ibanez S4170AB and then with the spare cash buy some Bareknuckle Pickups' Nailbombs or Warpigs to put in it + middle singlecoil of your choice. End result = one heck of a shred guitar.

Custom made? You have a HUGE range. For custom UK guys, ask someone else.

EDIT: That reminds me, what amp do you have? You need a great amp to compliment a super axe!

Isn't he dead?

ANYWAY, I would probably get an Ibanez - maybe something like a JEM or J-Custom?

He speaks the truth. Unless you have a nice amp to go along with this expensive guitar, you won't get the most out of the guitar. Mabye split it up, get a nice amp and a nice guitar too! (Unless of course you already have a good amp)

i reckon the first thing i wanna hear is what kind of amp you have.

yeah, but i'm trying to make him happy. an analogy from dave_mc:

if you got on a medical forum and said you had a headache and asked if you should take a bottle of aspirin to relieve it, you wouldn't tell them yes. while it would relieve their headache, it would hurt something else more.

we're just trying to help.

No he didn't. He said he had the HD147, that's a much more expensive and much better amp than the Spider series. HD147 is actually a good amp, whereas Spiders are...well less said about them the better lol.
#30
ah, my bad. the spider heads are the HD50 and HD75. see where i might have gotten confused?

okay, decent amp. i still wouldn't spend every single penny on the guitar.

I'd consider a Caparison, Ibanez Jem or J-Custom (or maybe a REALLY nice Prestige), a custom by pretty much any small luthier, the 2 Deans you mentioned (well the Rusty Cooley one anyway), a Carvin...

All that I can think of now.

Try before you buy any of them, obviously!
