Budget is $1000


Edit: i play metal hardcore, it would also be nice if good pickups were installed but its not needed,

i'd say a used gibson explorer because the newer gibsons aren't very good quality. or maybe a schecter hardtail hellraiser with EMG 81/85. im sure with a $1000 budget theres tons of good stuff out there.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Nice overgeneralisation. Cos a 16 year old who doesn't even own a Gibson can speak for the entire '08 line, huh? Stop passing on net rumours to people who might not realise you're talking out of your rear.

would a hellraiser be a big upgrade to a damian 6 string? i want something of good quality, although i did play the hellraiser yesterday and it does play pretty nice. i also really liked the active pickups +

any other guitars with active? i think that is what i need

I don't like the active EMGs but if that's your bag, the ESP Ltd line has a bunch of models with active EMGs. Same with Schecter's hellraiser line.

I think some of the hellraisers use Seymour Duncan's active Blackouts. I've heard those were better than the EMGs. Give them a try, too.

Nah. It's only the Blackjack ATX FR, which has a Floyd, and TS said he didn't want a Floyd Rose.

I take any opinion on something that someone doesn't own or has owned in the past with a grain of salt.

Some people read a magazine review or play something for 10 minutes in a store and consider themselves an authority.

Also, some people feel that anything they can't afford is no good or "overpriced".
