ESP LTD MHNT-1000- beautiful looks very nice player


ESP LTD- f-2e ..nice low price...but i would upgrade pickups to the nickel plated jb 59 set they have

ESP LTD EC-1000- nice gibby style guitar with out the price...looks nice ..plys nice and heavy

yeah you can hide a thousand dollars from your wife, but would you be able to hide a new guitar? anyway, i'd say the ESP LTD MHNT 1000, just because it's my personal favourite out of those ones. you can always trust ESP sometimes usually (:

C1 Classic

You know you already like schecters, and I ain't heard a bad thing about the C1 and it looks beautiful.

Bit harsh I think! He comes back for the last 10 minutes against Roma, after being out all season, and you want him crippled again? You harsh wanker!

The EC1000 with Duncans both plays and looks sweet. It's also very versatile on both fronts.

it sounds like you are just buying a guitar for the hell of it. i'd save your money and stick with the one you have already.

Well, if your open to suggestions......

Id toss a RR3 into the mix there (Providing it doesnt look to Metal to you.... But if you could find one in that Eerie Dess Swirl it'd be about the best looking guitar out there), From what I here they are surprisingly versitile.

Or....

Pick up a Strat and mod it up..... Then its YOUR guitar, not just some guitar anybody can buy..... Well, they probably can, but hey....

What pickups were you thinking about for the EC-1000 (IIRC they come with EMG's or SD's, correct?)
Life is like an Empty Box, there could be something exciting in it at first look, but upon further review, well, it's empty.

How about a Schecter Hollywood Classic. Those things are awesome.

This is UG, we love Schecters and Ibanez and Jacksons, we hate Deans and BCR's, we hate Marshall MG's, and everyone needs a new amp.

EC-1000 out of those. You should take a look at The Schecter Hellraiser though...I love mine and its in the same area as your looking at

Do you like Les Paul styles? If so you can get an Epi Elitist for your $1000.00 and it rivals the Gibson LP in every way. I also think it's quality and material selection is better than what you'd normally get for that kind of money.
Moving on.....

actually i want a guitar to have a different sound feel to play different things really...i dont mind more EMGs but i prefer SDs ..i want a nice looking guitar cuz i think im starting a band here in a little bit when i get my guitar and amp shipped from home ( im stationed in england right now)

but im looking to see where my money will be best spent...i could get rims for my car...or a guitar
