Okay so I'm saving up for a new axe. Preferably Hard-Tail because I have a Jackson with a Floyd Rose unit already, so it would be nice to have a change.

Is the ESP LTD Eclipse 500 good? I can't spend over 1000$....i barely get any income so the LTD 1000s or ESPs are out of the question (unless there is a sale)

But also, I was looking at Japanese Strats, are they any good also (Fender Made in Japan....not one of those cheap knock-offs).

An exlporer looks good too, but I'd probably get an epiphone one and mod it if i decided to get one.

Thanks,

Matt

It looks like somebody didn't do their homework. You can easily find LTD 1000 series guitars for well under $1000. I strongly suggest the EC-1000. It is an incredible guitar. Most of them come with an EMG 81/60 set, which is versatile enough since the 60 gives pretty good clean tones. The Amber Sunburst one comes with an alternative set of Duncan JB/59's. Personally I would get one with the EMG's, the Duncans might be even more versatile.

Aw crap. It appears your right.

EC-500 is still a great guitar, though. I say get it.

ack if its the jackson in your pics, then sorry. It's kind of ... too cheap for me. sorry. I want to spend money on a really good guitar, so I might even save up for an EC-1000, u know what I'm saying right? The JS King V is kind of downgrading from my dinky...sorry..
