    My price range is $2k-$3k, maybe a bit more. I wanna buy used to save money. I'm mainly looking for stuff with figured tops. Do you guys have any good brand suggestions? I know about and have looked on reverb for all the popular brands like ESP, Ibanez, Kiesel, Skervesen, and Mayones. I guess I'm looking for lesser known boutique brands. Something in the vein of Daemoness or Lionheart. Any suggestions?

    More specs would help

    If it's used just stick your filters to 1K - 3K on any used site like reverb, ebay and have at it imo. With smaller "boutique" brands you'll wait an age to find one used.

    Remember this forum has a Buy/Sell section, with smaller brands due to the nature of this place.

    I'm not sure if you've looked at Aristides guitars (specifically the 070 or the 070s), but their build quality is insane. Don't own one yet and I just bought a pretty expensive Skervesen raptor 7, but they're 100% going to be my next guitars. Truly phenomenal craftsmanship.

    Jackson b7. 27 inch scale with dimarzio Deactivaters. It's an American custom shop but I've seen them on reverb for your budget. They are about $3000 new but around $1500 used. Offset body.
