    Wrong section of the forum, and it REALLY helps reading the existing threads posted by countless of people like yourself who need help in buying a guitar.

    Yep, do read up the previous posts, you might get some insight and reviews.
    Visit harmony-central or some such to get some reviews on the gear you might be interested in.

    Wait a while. The new 2008 models are coming out and there are some killer deals.
    B.C.Rich has gone up a lot in quality and specs for the same price and I'd recomend them.
    Ibanez are decent, but I'm not a fan.
    Jackson are good, but IMO starting to get overpriced.

    Other brands to look at:
    Kramer gets you some good deals and kramer strikers are good guitars.
    Washburn has some really nice guitars too. Look around adn you can get somethinga wesome.

    I'd stay away from tremolos in that price range if i were you(apart from some kramers)
    Putting the PRO and FAN in PROFANITY
    My gear:
    -Agile Intrepid 8 String
    -Kramer Striker 7 string FR
    -B.C.Rich Afterburner SE Warlock w/ Seymour Duncan Blackouts
    -Boss GT-10
    -Bassmaster 200W amp
