Im looking for a good guitar for under 700$.
I really like Floyd Rose's and something i\that has a fast, cut neck(because i dont have that big of hands)
I like playing Metal/Old Rock, like ACDC, Metallica, Megadeth, and new stuff like Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium.
I like the Emg sound the best, but I also like seymour duncans. I like something that has 2 humbuckers. also something thats light, and shaped like a strat, or flying v. Any shape really, except for the les paul shape.
Im a huge fan of dean and ESP guitars, but ibanez and jackson come in a close second. I've heard Schecters are really good, but I haven't tried any out yet (i can't find any schecters in the chilliwack/abbotsford/langley british columbia area)

Help is awesome, and thanks alot

Help is much appreciated

you're describing a Schecter pretty much. C-1, any model with a Floyd Rose.

Jackson DKMG dinky
I decided I want to be more like the people on ug...


Searchbar!!!

That oughta do it.

Time for a supercool guitar demonstration by herman li,

Herman Li- why is this guitar so big?

Stage guy- because its a bass herman

Yeah, Schecter's are good. The neck isn't quite as thin as an ibanez, but it fits me well. I dunno of any good Jacksons for under like, a grand...So, my suggestions (may be a little biased... ) are a Schecter model with an FR, or a Jackson Dinky (it's right at $700...Could probably get it for less at a store)
My gear:
Schecter C-1+ w/ Seymour duncan Jazz (neck) and Full Shred (bridge), with Sperzels
B-52 LG-100A 4x12 half stack
Rogue LX405 Bass
Yamaha classical
Some sort of acoustic Squier
Boss Flanger
Lyon Chorus

So do you think I should try out the schecter?
and i tried out this ibanez the other day. it kicked so much ass!
the body was really thin, is had a floyd in it, super light, but it had these weird knock off emgs called INF's i think. can anyone tell me what kind of guitar this is? cause i forgot
BTW it was 649$

schecter or esp.

Electric - you plug it into a power outlet in the wall and the music comes from little speakers in the guitar.

I would say Schecter. Quality of them is quite amazing for the price.
2004 Fender American HSS Strat
Hughes And Kettner Switchblade
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser FR
Epi LP Classic
Epi G-400
Yamaha acoustic
Boss DD-3 Delay
B.Y.O.C. MXR Distortion+
Vox Wah
Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer
#11
exact one! except it was all pure blackm, and i was mistaken, it did have a pickup in the middle.
but thats not the point. what kind of hellraiser is the best for under 700?
#13
ESP LTD's M/MH series guitars (400 and up) or Schecter C-1 Hellraiser FR. I've got average/smallish hands, and I find Schecter profiles pretty comfortable, but I know some people find them to be chunky for some reason.
#14
Jackson RR3 has a thin neck, LFR, Duncans and is under $700. I played one the other day and fell in love.
#15
I also tryed out the RR3. beuatiful guitar, with floyd. just for some reason, i cant seem to like it.
#18

Jackson WRMG Warrior with EMG $749.00
ESP LTD KH-202 Kirk Hammett Signature Model Electric Guitar $429.00
Jackson DKMG Dinky 699-799.00
