I'm getting some money from a birthday party which is a week late, but I will have enough to buy a new guitar methinks.

It needs to be around 500 euros, good for playing metal, and I am fond of abusing the whammy bar so some sort of tremolo system is a must.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Schecter C-1 fr, or if you have a little extra money the C-1 hellraiser FR . they're pretty good, but have actives and won't sound that great with a Solid state (SS) amp. That is, if you have an SS amp... also, the hellraiser FR has an OFR, whereas the C1-FR has an LFR.

LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I hate treads like these, there is so many, at the same "Beginner's price range", it's always the same answers, same thing for budget amps.
