    Hey guys so I'm really torn at the moment on what guitar to buy, my budget is £1000 or $1390. I'm looking for a seven string with a floating locking tremolo, so that narrows it down a hell of a lot and I preferably would like a guitar that doesn't have a bolt on neck. I have some aesthetic things as well like binding on the edges of the fret board and binding on the body, I LOVE that look, I'm not too fussed on the color though and something with nice pickups in it as standard.

    I have found some guitars I like and not all of them have these specifications (pretty much the two Ibanez guitars, but I love Ibanez):

    Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 FR (how does the carbon fiber binding look in person?)

    Schecter Blackjack ATX C-7 FR

    Schecter JL-7 FR MK-I Jeff Loomis

    Jackson Pro Series Soloist SL7Q Alien Burst

    Ibanez RGIR37BE

    Ibanez RG7PCMLTD

    Ibanez JBM27 Jake Bowen Signature

    For the kind of coin you might spend, try to get something for the Prestige line of Ibanez instead. :2c:

    That's actually quite a deal for those specs.

    I'd seriously consider this, OP.
