okay, so my original budget of up to $1000 is lowered to $800. I don't know what to get. I want something pretty versatile. I play progressive metal, classic rock, some modern metal, and a lot of shred. I would like something with a very fast neck (not necessarily thin, just fast) and either a strat-style body or an LP-style body.

so far these are some guitars i have some interest in:
- B.C. Rich Assassin FX6
- Agile Interceptor with EMGs
- Agile AL-4000 w/ SDs (natural finish)
- Fender Showmaster of some sort

so yeah, give me some suggestions

p.s. I HATE SCHECTERS!!!!!!! I own one and I absolutely HATE IT!

Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
(or any of the hellraisers for that matter, they are all basically the same, just different body styles and theres a model with a floyd rose as well.)

Jackson makes a dinky in the 800dollar range you might want to look into it as well.

I'm in the same exact situation as you are. Im most likely gonna get a hellraiser or a new acoustic of some sort.

Schecter C-1 Classic is a good one.

Also, if you like Strats, check out Fender's Highway One series I think they're called. They're Strats with hotter pickups for those who like metal and hard rock. I hear good things about them.

there's a highway one showmaster. hard to find. american made, but it's a bolt on and doesnt look as nice.

showmaster is a good choice. not common.

Schecter Guitars are insane get a Hellraiser for metal or a C-1 Classic if you play a little bit of everything

You guys need to learn how to read.

Sounds like me that some guitars you need to check out are Ibanez RG's or S-Series. You could probably check out the LTD EC-1000, great guitar. Go on Musician's Friend or similar site and put your price range up to 800, then do price from low to high, high to low, whatever and look through your choices.

Edit: If you look at the EC-1000 get it with the Seymour Duncans, not the EMGs.

Why?

cause it's incredibly sexy, the neck profile is exactly what i want, and the pickups are supposed to be awesome

jsut because your shecter sucks doesnt mean they all do
why does it suck?

thick neck, frets out easily, and a bunch of other things. it basically plays like ****. And I have tried the hellraiser series and those guitars play like **** (to me) as well.
