    Dude u better wait and Buy a Good Guitar

    I wud suggest u to wait and Buy a Good guitar rather than buying some crap for 14 to 15k. My first choice wud be Fender Stratocaster. u can get to for a minimum price of 40K.
    If u r really desperate to waste ur money then goahead and buy any guitar of ur choice.
    Or else one more option is buy a good Acoustic/Electric guitar. worth 15K. That would be a good deal.
    lemme know what u have decided finally.

    The stick thingy is a whammy Bar ( more precisely tremolo arm ). Note you may land into tuning stability problems if u resort to vintage tremolo's, go for floyd rose dual locking tremolo ( this comes at a higher price ) if u really need them. But decide first does your playing style really need a tremolo ??

    Floating bridges are a pain for a beginner, if u are not accustomed to them !!!!!

    Between 15-17k there won't be all that much improvement in guitars, but you may miss certain features in a <15k guitar.


    25 1/2 frets? Ummm :think:
    Please read up about scale lengths and frets

    Heh, for <15k?

    It's called a tremolo. And there are various kinds. However, since you say you like to play metal you'll want what is called a locking tremolo, a type that doesn't go out of tune (too easily) when you abuse it. It's called a Floyd Rose (licensed) tremolo, or, in Ibanez guitars, an Edge/Edge pro trem.

    I have a 2nd hand guitar -BC Rich Beast shaped, 24 frets, 25 1/2" scale, humbuckers and a single coil pickup; and the apparatus for the "that stick thingy near the bridge", but I need to pick up another "that stick thingy near the bridge". See my signature for info and pics.

    get an LTD 50 series (but they arent worth the money ...but they are pretty good)

    Check out some Ibanez guitars

    I personally would take the warlock amongst the others because i find the warlock's neck to be just like my slammer (which is great for comfort etc etc)
























































    PS : i dont care what you (anti B.ich) people think so don't even bother...

    i basically want my guitar to hav--

    24 or 25 1/2 JUMBO frets - doesnt make much diff though

    ebony board - your not gonna get that for 15k sorry

    humbucker pickups - most stock pickups suck so these will be very temporary for you

    that stick thingy near the bridge...SRRY dunno what its called :p - I wouldnt get a floating trem because if its not original floyd it isnt worth spending more for.

    shark tooth inlays - Why not shark fin or just flags and dots? :p

    Go for the ESP MH 50(18K) and then get the pickups upgraded to EMGs.

    But He can upgrade 'em later right? All he needs is a nice body+neck+tuners+bridge+tremolo

    Take my guitar for 9k. Then you have 6k to upgrade 2 of the 3 pickups if you really want to. They're active - well suited for heavy metal.

    Laney where can I buy a trem arm?

    Get the ESP without the floyd , the BC rich (good neck dammit!) or the Ibanez. Whichever suits you
