Jackson RR3 if you like the Rhoads V shape.
Jackson's licensed Floyd Roses are pretty nice.

If you dont want a strat shaped guitar what do you want? That will help us find what you are looking for.

I take it in your in the UK? Most prices in US don't translate to £ easily, since we get raped in VAT and Customs.

Your best bet is possibly the Jackson RR3 or an Epiphone Explorer trem that used to be on GAK.co.uk I'm sure.

If a Jackson RR3 isn't what you're looking for then you may be hard pressed to find anything.

Maybe look at an Ibanez Iceman or Destroyer.

If you don't want a strat style guitar in that budget, you're going to get a rubbish trem.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Go for the Jackson RR3 in black or tansparent red!
The hellraiser v-1 is great, but ugly IMO.

Actually I am trying to get rid of a Rhoads-style Kramer V.
It's an older one, MIJ, with an OFR...
Take a gander at my thread in gear ads.

It's not US currency, dumbass.

Schecter V-1 FR. It has Emg 81tw/89 humbuckers, which can be split coiled, an Original Floyd Rose, and has a pretty nice V shape. That's the guitar I'm personally looking at to buy in a few months.

Yes, it's $850, but I'm assuming your budget is *around* $800 and not $800 on the dot like some other people who will not be named >.<. The extra $50 shouldn't be that hard to get if you only have $800 (Yes, I realize the money you speak of isn't American currency, but I'm talking in terms I'm familiar with. I'm pretty sure the currency rate is like 1 pound=like...$2 about. Just putting it out there so I don't get called a dumbass for no reason like the dude above me called someone....).

A reviewer on Amazon.com reviewing an album by the band "HiM", said that HiM is "fag metal".
Can someone explain to me what is this sub genre of fag metal? I have never heard it before.
