    I am having a budget of Rs 30,000 and i mostly play metal.So any good suggestions about a guitar with at least 2 pickups(preferably EMG) and a tremolo??

    ROFL, "atleast two pickups". :D

    Jackson DXMG Dinky. Seems to be fitting your requirements, i.e., Metal, EMG, FR Trem.

    If you are in Bangalore you can either go to Reylonds or Sounds Glitz and check out the Jackson and Dean Guitars they have, most of them are in the range of 30 to 35 k.
    Cheers

    ^Better any day than
    (pecking order)
    MII(ndia)
    MIC(hina)
    MII(ndonesia)
    MIK(orea)/MIJ(apan)
    MIM/MIA
    I don't know how the last two pairs compare. (whether Korean is better than Japanese, and whether Mexico is better than 'America' xD)

    It doesn't really matter where it's made, though, I guess...but a. I am not a gear geek, and b. people say that the best ones are generally Japan or US made.

    Btw, you could also look for a Schecter, they might have something decent in that range.

    Also...and whytheflyingfackdidn'tIoranyoneelsementionthisbefore...AGILE!! - www.rondomusic.com Pwnage quality and features at an epic price...This 8 string baby is in my to-buy list. - Intrepid Pro Dual 828 EB Nat

    Also...looks like there's a teaser page for...9 string guitars! @_@

    Rejoice man, you CAN order an Agile here if you're willing to spend ~$100 for shipping...not too shabby (the guitar I mentioned itself is ~800)

    And lol, that 9 string page on rondomusic didn't open for me, so your guess is as good as mine. 12 (octave doubling) strings are ghey, sure they sound good but by compromising with lead parts? Meh x-P

    Is floyd rose,the best tremolo system?
    AND I HAVE SELECTED TO BUY JACKSON DXMG DINKY.SO DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER OPTIONS FOR A GUITAR WITH MORE THAN 1 PICKUP AND A WHAMMY BAR UNDER 30K.

    ^Dude

    1. What do you mean by Floyd Rose (FR)?
    ...Are you asking whether a double locking design is the best between that and these?
    ...or are you asking which one is the best from all the double locking whammy bars...
    (Which include - Original Floyd Rose, Floyd Rose Pro, Floyd Rose Speedloader, Schaller, Gotoh, Kahler, Ibanez Edge, Ibanez Edge III, Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge, Ibanez Edge Pro, Ibanez Edge Pro II, or Ibanez ZR...and all of these have sub types, look up Wikipaedie)

    2. Are you an ignorant twat? LIKE 80% OF ALL GUITARS HAVE TWO PICKUPS, and unmentionably few have 1 or 3!! Stop dropping that bs. =|

    There's Ibanez S series with a ZR...
    S470 a trifle amount over 30k
    S420 28k :p

    @flood - ...yeah well, true...

    Read this - http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=365675
    If you read that link and then see that list of double locking whammy systems I wrote, all of those models except the Edge III and Edge Pro II are considered by that page to be good. Warning - I hate whammys, and have never and will probably never use a guitar with them.

    Guitarra - You got quite a fairly long list so far. To recap for you and everyone.
    Jackson DXMG Dinky
    Dean (no models specified)
    (I'm iffy about Corts in general, they seem popular though. YMMV)
    Schecter
    Agile
    Ibanez S420
    Ibanez S470

    Try the ibanez rg series.

    One problem with the ibanez S420/S470 is that they have just 22 frets and for playing metal you may also have to go higher to the 24th fret.Do you any other suggestion in ibanez guitars?
