I've been playing guitar off and on for about 15 years now, I've really got back into it recently actually, and so have been toying with the idea of buying a new guitar. The thing is I've never really been into the "gear" side of things, and I wouldn't mind a few pointers as to what might be a decent buy. I'm not wanting to spend a lot, maybe £400 max, which I know isn't much of a budget for a guitar but I'm sure there are some decent bargains out there. Some possibly relevant info, I would describe my ability as maybe advanced-intermediate at best, I'm no Malmsteen but I'm not terrible either. I play metal almost exclusively. I currently have a Dean Razorback and a Yamaha RGX (I think this is an Ibanez RG knock-off but I really like this guitar actually). I absolutely don't want another Floyd rose bridge, both my current guitars have one. I'd prefer 24 frets if possible but this isn't a deal breaker. I really liked the look of the Schecter C1 but it was way out of my budget Any thoughts are most welcome.
