i mostly play classic rock and blues, though i am getting more interested in jazz/fusion. i already have an epiphone sg '66 reissue and a 2002 fender highway one strat with two dimarzio area '59's and an area '61. no specific requirements. and it is USD

Ibanez sz320. I have it and I love it. It does have a rather chunky neck though(for an Ibanez), but its not bad, I have no problem shreddin on it. An S is a good idea too, if you want a slightly longer, thinner neck, but make sure you get one with a good trem if you decide you want an S.

Check out the Epiphone Les Paul Custom. Very versitle guitar and it is at the peak of your price range. I'm sure you can work down the price though, I could've gotten one for 500 out the door, but I ended up going with my Ibanez instead.

i really wanna get a sound like santana. i've been thinkin bout a PRS. but i havent tried one out yet. what do you guys think?

Ibanez's aren't that great for his main styles of classic rock and blues. A stratocaster would do those nicely, allthough you already have one. I second alienboys reccomendation of trying out an Epiphose Les Paul Custom. Very good, very versatile.

PS - to get a lower price you can haggle with the salesperson. I know for a fact that none of the prices on anything in the store are set in stone, they are all negotiable. I could go into great detail LOL thats how many times I've done this. Also, telling them that this is not a gift from your parents, that you earned the money yourself. (even if it is a lie) They have more respect for you if you know that you earned your money yourself, that you worked so you could buy this guitar.


edit: ^ Yes!!! Another Santana fanboy! If you like his tone you should definitely check around for PRS's in your price range. However, he uses the most high quality guitars, so just getting a PRS is not going to make you sound anywhere near him. Only get a guitar if you are sure this is the one you want and you have exhausted all other choices. I don't mean to be nosy, I just want you to get the best for your money.
Do NOT look behind you.

Might I add one more good way to get lower prices...
Always buy from the same guy! This is very important. You do so much less haggling when you always buy from one guy. I got my 6505+ (sticker 1159.99 (+tax)) for 1000 after tax after 20 seconds of haggling.

^^Shredding isn't just death metal. And there actually isn't a lot of real shredding in real death metal.

speed metal, metalcore, and others are shredding but death metal is more of a deep chug chug sound... correct?
as for the guitar i really like the Laguna guitars for that price range

Why has nobody yet asked about his amp?

Are you looking for a change in the playability of the guitar or new features, or are you just looking to change your tone and overall sound? If you're looking for a sound change, an amp change will do far more than a new guitar will.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
