    i started learning alot of more neo classical shredy type of licks lately and i have 2 problems
    1. alot of them have the use trems, the only guitar i own has a tune o matic bridge
    2. its a seven string with a 26.5 inch scale so all the bends(my string will snap) and fingerings are rather difficult

    im looking for a good guitar with a floyd that is otherwise decent atleast, doesnt have to be top notch but i atleast want to be able to abuse it a bit (the occasional dive bomb and such and such) and i think id like a 25.5 scale at best (minimum would probably be 24.75)

    any suggestions for new guitars or guitars that pop up on the used market alot?

    You can get a Jackson SLX Soloist for $550, I know its a little more, but it is a nice guitar.

    MIJ 400 series Ibanez in addition to your usual MIJ Jackson DKMG, PS-4, JDR-94, DK2, DK-10, DX10, Fusions and DK2Ms

    RG470s are more easily found than S470s that are MIJ because there were LOTS of different Korean S470 models

    LO-TRS isn't as bad as poeople make it out to be because they're usually thinking of the LO-TRS II that goes on 90s Korean Ibbos
