Hey UG,

I'm looking for a Super Strat style guitar for playing music like

-Testament
-Emperor
-Kreator
-Blind Guardian
-Death
-Helloween
-Behemoth
-Racer X

So basicly Metal/Shred style stuff.

I currently play through a Vox Valvetronix amp.My next setup will be something like in my sig.

I would like it to be a Super Strat style guitar with an H-S-S,H-S-H,H-H or H-S pickup layout.A locking trem of some sort.A thin flat neck.Stock pickups dont matter too much as I will probably change them out eventually.

I would like it to be either neck-through,or bolt on.Not set necks.

For would I would prefer Alder,Mahogony,or Basswood.

Price range is around $500-$800 USD.Going used/eBay is an option.

Some models that I have liked so far are:Jackson Pro/MG series
Ibanez S series
Jackson Fusion Series
Some older Charvels
Older Ibanez RGs

Suggest Away!

Hmm, maybe an old Paul Gilbert PGM?

Or guitars simerlar to what he used in Racer X with the humbucker in the bridge and the mini-humbucker in the neck! Though I doubt you could find one.

Other than those, I'd say Charvel.

You need a guitar that SCREAMS 80s and charvel are the ones to do that.

An Ibanez RG1570 is within your price range. The pickups aren't all that great, though, so you might want to buy a used one and put some better ones in it.

Old kramer is also worth considering.

OK. Look out for old japan made focus series (not the new ones), baretta, pacer, condor and others. Make sure it's US made or japan made not the cheap korean new kramers.
