price range : 850-1100 maybe higher
music i play: metallica, nirvana, disturbed, slipknot, darkest hour
i play grunge, metal, older metal like metallica, nu-metal, screamo metal, whatever you want to call it and sometiems but not aften alternative stuff (and when its alternative it hasd to atleast be somehwhat heav...take 3 days grace for example).
looks matter?: not really or id go for BC RIch but then again wouldnt that be weird playing nirvana with a mean lookign guitar? anyways im not too fond of bc rich.
Pickup preference: EMG's (active or passive doesnt matter really). but id settle for any good HUMBUCKER! no single coil
i like ibanez, jackson, schecter, some dean guits, and more

i dont use whammy bar much but id like to have a floyd rose maybe...thats the only reason i dont use the whammy on my guitar (white Ibanez RG w/ Dimarzio pickups)


for a while ive been hunting for a new guitar, soon i will have about 999 (give or take so i guess like 850- 1100 maybe more) and ive played lots. I had my mind set on the Gibson LEs Paul studio but man when i played it i didnt like it at all. it just didnt have that metal edge to it that i want, i guess its more bluesy...i figured i could always throw some EMG's on it but eh its not worth it...plus i wasnt too fond off the action. but i did like it on solos it have a nice bluesy solo sound when i did some metallica solos. but the powerchords suck in my opinion. The Gibson Explorer had the same result to me but it was a little bit better. the gibsons just seemed to have a bassy blusy sound which i dont care for much. i tried a few other guitars out.
on main choice i have now is the Ibanez Mick Thomson (slipknot) custum guitar (it was on sale for 999$). I loved the action on it and the sound has a nice bottom end to it it sounded liek but in a good way. a sound i really like. there is a problem though, there are no fret dots on the fret board! i know alot of people dont even use them but i always do and get lost without them and im wondering hwo id get used to it. thats the main problem. i dont really care about have a floyd rose (it does have a locking system on it though. ). and it has EMG's i forget which kind but i know its not the normal 85 81. i like "SEVEN" written down the neck of the guitar so i figured i might just name my band SEVEN and have it seem like i had a custom guitar haha but thats not important. it also comes with a tuner anyways the other guitar wa sthe schecter Hellraiser. EMG's (81 and 85 but i heard its supposed to be a new kind that you can choose if its on single coil or not and there is a single coil within one of the humbuckers). really pretty guitar and it had a floyd rose. the action was nice it might have been as nice as the other one it was a hard decision but i think the ibanez may have beat it by a little. as far as sound it was amazing, i think i mightlike the ibanez a little better just the type of sound not quality but they were both nice. it also takes 9v batters which seems liek a pain...i wonder if it is. I REALLY CANT DECIDE WHAT TO GET. this guitar is only 850 though....

what should i do and any suggestions/other guitars to check out?

The Mick Thompson Ibanez does have a locking trem, but it's fixed to the body - you can't install a whammy bar or move the bridge. Kind of strange, but that's how he's done it.

I agree with Blooddawning. I have an Ibanez and two ESP's(well an LTD and LTD-Deluxe) but I would take them over my Ibanez in a heartbeat.

What you definetly need is an esp/esp ltd, with EMG 81/85 active pickups or seymor duncan blackouts, and i got an ltd explorer and it had a locking string at the bridge
