ibanez sounds like it would fit your bill but most have a trem.

look at washburn. If your okay with more out-there shapes, B.C.Rich have nice fast necks and so do dean.

agile are cheap and good, but im not sure if you get them in australia.

Look at ESP eclipses though. Very metal guitars and very beautiful too. and if your looking at esp and see a model you like, try find an edwards reseller. Same guitars, similiar quality, same company, much cheaper

and holy ****, the sound quality of your recordings on youtube are ****....OMG, its ear-piercing...no offence meant though, I'm sure you sound good, but man cell-phones are not meant to record metal.

try the LTD les paul copy, i dont know the exact model number.

EDIT: or a LTD viper-400 i think it is.

Have a look at the LTD EC-200QM or LTD MH-250NT.

If you wanna have a look at what ESP have to offer look at this site http://www.guitar.com.au/guitars/electric/esp/index.htm
Their prices are usually what you would expect to pay for a guitar anywhere in Australia.

ESP v-500. or was it a v-300. I forgot which one had a fixed bridge. Awesomely awesome metal guitar. I tried it once, it would have been my next guitar if not for the fixed bridge.
#10
the V-500 is something like 1700 Australian. You coudl always try the V-250 (Or was it V-200?)

The JS30 Jacksons are all pretty good, just pick a shape you like and it'll be the same price, about $600. Try one out though, I've found it suits me but it doesnt suit a few of my mates.

Otherwise for a little more are the tasty Ibanez RGs for probably $800-1000

Ibanez RG321.

Should be a little below your budget, so you could use the remainder of it to swap the pickups to some DiMarzios or something.

i think an ibanez rga121 would be good for that. not so much bright pickups, but quite bright tonewoods (yes, i'm aware it's mahogany... try one if you don't believe me).

I'm not too well up on aussie prices though, that could be way over budget...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

RGA121 is a really good fixed bridge guitar. The Gibralter Plus is built like a rock and feels really great for palm muting.

maybe jackson RR5 or ibanez RGA121 would be good. not sure about aus currency or prices though, so might be off your price range

Jackson DK2T, ESP/LTD Viper or Eclipse 400, and the Schecter C-1 Series are all solid choices. I think the ESP/LTDs have better hardware, but the Jackson is built better then both the ESP/LTDs and the Schecters. Schecters have flashier looks then the others. all depends on preference.

if you're willing to ship from germany, thomann has pretty decent prices (for europe) on LTD's...

i'm pretty sure the ibanez SZ series are all fixed bridges.

otherwise you could check out the Schecter line. a lot of them are fixed brdige stuff.

I'm currently looking for the LTD MH-400NT. (actually, I'm looking for a shop selling this... At a reasonable price... In BELGIUM +o()

Living in Belgium myself, I advise you to buy whatever guitar you're going to buy from Thomann or Musikstore.

You're going to get ripped off no matter where you buy it in Belgium.
