I currently work in my local guitar shop and among the free picks and discount strings, if i manage to catch my boss in a good mood, I could ask him to order me a guitar in and i only pay wholesale price, and under such circumstance, i could get an LTD EC-1000 for about £400, should i go for that, or can anyone recommend anything else? I play most classic rock and metal.
Funny words.

if its the one with the Seymour Duncans it will be pretty good for classic rock and very good for metal.

i didnt like the neck on mine. 24 frets on that scale is too many.

I'm looking at one of EMG models actually, i suppose i was too general with the genres, i'm more into Ozzy, BLS, and heavier classic rock.

oh ok, well perfect, the EMG models should be great, especially for Ozzy and BLS.

Ec-1000's with EMG's are awesome. I would highly recommend that you get it. Best value guitar on the market and that's at full retail price.

edwards, maybe. though that'd probably be closer to £500 what with customs and all.

but other than that, that's a pretty good price for the LTD, if the 24 frets on a les paul thing doesn't annoy you.

if you can't get it for £400, though, I'd rather have an edwards.

Gordon smith is maybe worth a look too, but again you'd be talking more like £500, maybe £600, for one with 2 pickups...

what do you play more of, classic rock or metal?

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.

^ I suppose more classic metal, Maiden, Metallica, Ozzy, stuff like that. One thing that appeals to me about this is the better higher fret access compared to other LPs.
Funny words.

I've got an EC-1000 and im dead happy with it. Best to try it out against some other guitars though. You can't go wrong for £400 quid especially.

ah- if that is the case, my edwards at least is just like a bog standard les paul in that respect. there are other edwardses a bit more like the LTD ones, but they might be a bit more cash, and I'm not sure of the upper-fret access.

£400 is a pretty good deal... unless you could maybe find a washburn wi65pro idol? they're generally pretty good value, around £300, stock with duncans... nice guitars, though you might not like the looks...

I realy like the ESPs. I played one in my store and was really happy with the sound. The 24 frets didnt bother me toooo much. I have kinda big hands to.

Hmm, i'll check that out, I've been looking at X-50's as well, any views on those?

good guitars for a very nice price in the UK. as long as you don't mind (a) no inlays (b) pretty naff headstock and (c) a painted neck- of course those three are personal preference, and aren't related to the quality at all, but no inlays would put me off. But if you can put up with it, it's a very nice guitar. At least the one I tried was.
