A bridge forged in the fires of hell, made from the razors that suicide victims used to slash their wrists, mixed with the luger owned by Hitler, painted with the blood of the innocent.

Brutal.

Edit: Oh, and Washburn isn't metal . . . it's like, glass or plastic . . . or something. Try B.C. Rich. Get a Warlock and impale a child's skull on the headstock. Then maybe string it up with razor wire. Brutal.

As you've mentioned harmonics, I think it's worth pointing out it depends what you want to use it for.

Obviously the tune-o-matic can't do the whammy bar squeals/harmonic dives that a Floyd Rose-equipped guitar can do.

However, the tune-o-matic would usually have better tuning stability (apart from against the better FR bridges) and would not raise the pitch when heavily muting if the player is heavy handed and leaning on the bridge alot (where the FR would be pushed slightly)

a TOM is good, but a FR can give whammy tricks, cool sound, divebombs and all that
and if you have a good one you don´t have to worry about the tuning stability

washburn is a good company, not my personal favorite, but is good

i'd take price into consideration as a major factor as well

if you can only afford a cheap guitar I'd recommend the tuno matic over a floating bridge
cheap licensed floyd rose's dont generally last long and good quality licensed ones that will last you a while are rare under the £500 mark.

I dont know if the same is true of tuno matics but they are certainly less expensive to replace if they break or wear out

It's all personal preference. A Fender HSS American Strat can be just as good for metal as a B.C. Rich NJ Deluxe Warlock. It's entirely up to the player holding it as far as which one is best.

I myself would like the luxury of having both fixed bridge and Floyd-equipped guitars, but unfortunately I don't have that kind of money. I prefer Floyds though.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

My Schecter has a TOM bridge and I PM all the time, it feels great and doesnt mess with the pitch. Don't have any experience with a decent FR bridge yet.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

Adam D. from Killswitch Engage originally uesd a Fender Strat and they are one of the heaviest bands (tone wise) out there... using the Maxon OD's along with high gain amps. Just more proof that you can use just about any guitar for just about any genre.

If you really want teh br00talz, skip the guitar entirely.

Get a hurdygurdy, a bagpipe, and some tin whistles.

For metal, Gibraltar Plus bridge. Very good for drop tunings in metal.

Washburn makes a quality guitar. A lot of people here seem to base their decisions off looks or what they think is cool. When you come down to what the guitar is and what it is made of, Washburn's use quality woods, electronics and parts. May not be able to "impale a small child with the headstock" as someone said before, but you will get a very good sounding playable guitar.
