I'm beginning my search for a new electric. Looking for something between $600 and $800 US. I've looked at the Schecter C-1 Classic and a couple Jackson's, but all suggestions are welcome.

I currently play out of a Peavey Classic Chorus 212 amp. I play a variety of music (from 311, to Black Sabbath, to Metallica, to Zeppelin, to Neil Young) so I would like a guitar with a lot of versatility.

Thanks in advance.
Gear:
Gibson Explorer (white)
Schecter C-1 Classic
Fender SuperSonic 112
Visual Sounds Jekyll & Hyde
EHX No.1 Echo
Ibanez Weeping Demon

Get a Jackson, and kick anyone who says Jackson is built ONLY for Metal in the balls. Jackson has quite a solid low/mid range.

i heard that jacksons have a problem with the volume knob, it does something so you can change the volume on the guitar, it doesnt come like this it's a fault that happens so ive heard

Most Jacksons are only for Metal.

Come on, bring on the ball kicking. Oh wait, you can't. We are on the internet. And you can E-kickmyballs.
Colors by Between the Buried and Me is the Best album ever

Do you get your kicks off being a sardonic little brat?

What's the problem with the volume knobs?

To thread starter:
You could always try a LAG guitar; i have one and it's the most comfortable guitar i've ever used. Most of them have 24 frets and the one i have is strung through the body so sustain is good. I replaced the pickups on mine but the stock ones seemed fairly good (better than any ibanez stock pups!).
This site sells LAG's: http://www.tonezonemusic.co.uk/guitarbrandsearch.asp?ManufacturerID=1
At least check out the JM100 it rocks IMO
Cheers
Gear:
>ESP LTD FX-400SM
>LAG Jet JM100 with Swineshead Venom (bridge) and Warthog (neck) pickups
>EHX Bigg Muff Pi
>BOSS MT-2 Metal Zone

Ibanez RG is the most common response to every question on this board, Ibanez is insanely overrated
