Like the title says!
  • I play metalish music
  • Under $550 used or new don't care which
  • I want a thinner neck
  • Don't want a heavy guitar (so light weight body material?)
  • MUST HAVE GOOD HIGHER FRET ACCESS
  • Tremolo system
  • No crazy body designs; I play sitting down alot


I wouldn't mind if it came with active EMGs either!

I'd like to try out an Ibanez S520EX or a S470DXQM
Anybody have one of those they like?

Jackson DXMG? It's got EMGs, but not active ones I'm afraid. Locking trem system and super strat shape, sounds right up your alley.

I would look for used Ibanez RG550s or 560s, and while they don't come with EMGs, I would give them a try. Also look for used MG series Jacksons with EMG Actives (DKMG, WRMG). I'm sure you could find some used ESP/LTD for that price with the features you need as well.

Thanks. I had thought about the Jackson Dinky but I tried one out and wasn't too fond of it. I don't remember why now though haha. I would like to try a Randy Rhoads but I'm not sure how easy that would be to play sitting down.

Not many ESP/LTD axes have trem systems on them.

Jackson DK2M or Jackson DK2? They're both great guitar's, and under 550$ (i suppose, here in portugal they are xD )

it takes about an hour to get used to sittting down with one, so not too bad

I have the RX10D, it's really easy to play sitting down, it just takes a while to get used to it.
