You have "a valve", not "valves"

That Cort is okayish, but the pickups are meh and the trem is going to be pretty dodgy for that price. This guitar, however, is awesome for the price, with your budget your best avoiding floating bridges anyway

^If he doesn't want a trem, the X50PRO is the way to go. TS, ever considered going used?

The blue one is, indeed, gorgeous

You might well find you like the stock pickups though, the Custom Custom/59 is a good pairing...makes a nice change from unimaginitive companies slapping the JB in everything.

I like the cutaway i think it adds somin a bit diff to the generic super strat shape. ur right tho it does look to be a beast. completely unrelated i am gutted because an ibanez rg2550 with a lo pro trem just sold on ebay using buy it now for £325 wish i had the money, I begged my parents but they werent having it, I am 20 mind lol.

i suggest a metal axxe warp...and you'll have money to buy a better amp if you want, the floyd is reliable and its got amazing upper fret access for solos.
the pickups in it are able to go from metal(bridge), creamy hi gain solos(neck) or blues/clean using the coil split options!

A single preamp tube going through a digital modeling section and solid-state power section really doesn't count as "tube..." As nice as the Valvetronix sounds, I'd personally get a better amp before a new guitar. Then again, you're stuck with a Squier...

I'd buy the Ibanez RG2EX1. If the pickups aren't hot enough for you since they're kinda medium output, get some GFS Crunchy Rails and slap them mo'fos up in there. They kill. That'll set you back $360 USD, so you're still well within your budget.

well it just said rg2550 but i assume is was the E i think the z has an egde zero or edge pro but this one had a lo pro. anyway it was a bargain at the price so its no suprise it was bought within like 5 hours.

and if machinehead still have them, maybe the wi65pro? would save £60.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
