I need a bit of help choosing a my next guitar. Trying the guitars out is not an option, because my local music store does not carry these particular brands. Ive got the following options considered.

Any information regarding these guitars would be greatly appreciated.

Any other suggestions are also appreciated, as long as they are similarly priced and equipped as the other guitars.

Thank you for your time.

Agile. E-mail Kurt at rondomusic to tell him that you want the crappy LFR to be replaced with an original floyd rose.

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.

Basically under $350 USD. I may be able to go a bit over.

And the style of music I like to play is varied, from blues to heavy metal.

And yes, a Floyd Rose styled tremolo would be preferred.

I'm assuming that would cost more? How much more?

yea, umm, not to bust your bubble but most cheap guitars with floating trems will most likely give out on you after a couple of months of use.
but if you can

I know, but I'm hoping when that happens I can replace the LFR for a real one.

Pretty much, yeah. But I know I'm not going to be able to save up for a better guitar, because I'm still trying to stop myself from spending my savings.
