To summarize... i need a good guitar

Does that guitar even exist under $1000?

Style: Metal
Budget: Obviously $1000
Ibanez RG1570. It's a bolt on but bolt ons aren't necessarily bad.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Adam S3A monitors

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Definately try it out first, make sure the neck isn't too thick for you. but its a great guitar imo
or a schecter blackjack atx.

Almost same specs as hellraiser except ebony fretboard and blackouts
Jackson DKMG (bolt on but still a nice neck)
Schecter Hellraiser
ESP 1000 stuff
I've actually got my eye on the Jackson DKMG. I currently own a bolt-on guitar and it does affect reaching the high frets and it's pretty tiring. I'm gonna have to try the DKMG to see how it plays. I like the EMG's too
Ill 2nd the Schecter Hellraiser C-1.

Those are really great guitars. The trem will take loads of abuse, I sat in GC for like an hour the other day and jammed on it through an Engl Blackmore.

I was really impressed.

Who said that bolt-ons are bad at all...? Most shred guitars are bolt-ons.

might get one myself one day, then do a killswitch, and preamp booster mod on it.
