Whats some good options for a floyd guitar for around 600us? That is pretty much the highest I can go. Unless its everything I want.
Perfered -
Explorer style (Not really into the super strat style unless the price is good)
Duncans high output.
(Blackouts if its again at the right price trying to stay away of actives)

Im looking for something to keep in a lower tunning.
Playing style Dime and Tremonti.

used Schecter C-1 Hellraiser FR.

EDIT: Blackjack instead. For the passive Seymour Duncans. That's what I want to replace my Damien with to go along with my Tempest Blackjack...

How you like the blackjack version of the tempest? How I wish they made a Floyd version of the tempest... That would be heaven. Or a Shecter explorer with one... Oh that would be pear loving sex.

Buy used. Guitars can kind of be like cars. Someone can buy a guitar brand new out of the shop, bring it straight home and put it on ebay and lose up to a quarter of the price. Well they're not really as bad as cars because they usually don't just randomly fall apart but you get what I mean

I love the Blackjack Tempest. I too wish they made a FR version of the tempest. or I could go for a NON-Syn Floyd version of the Avenger...

You're speaking of the Hellraiser. All Blackjack models come with Seymour Duncans. But I agree on guitar choice.


Also,

If you go to americanmusical.com you can break it up into 3 equal payments which might make it more in your range... No Credit check or anything... Just have to pay with a credit card and pay an extra $3.95... That's what I did with my Tempest.

No, I'm speaking about the C1 Blackjack ATX - none of the Hellraisers has SD Blackouts, but the Blackjack ATX series all comes equipped with them. I think the ATX's is a fairly new Schecter series of guitars!

yes, get it

i have that guitar

it's awesome

the pickups are REALLY clear, the harmonics are clean. also, i haven't had to change the battery from the one that came with it and i've had it for about 2-3 months now - with regular playing. the FR is still holding up and i can give it quite a bashing. it rarely goes out of tune. the neck is really fast and you can reach fret 24 on the low E cos of the all access neck

it's a good buy

I really want to try one out... That 3 payment idea isint bad. Id like to get it new but in reality your getting it in better condition if you buy it used rather than setting on a rack at a shop where hundreds of people pick it up.
