Re: Crazy finished RG as replacement for LTD
Here in the states the Lexi goes for $1000 new, but your only looking to spend $840 (650 euros). This is a hard task with the options your looking for.
For new guitars your only choices are the RG821 and the RG3521 in Germany (both come in black only). If you can source guitars outside Germany, you have the additional option of the RG921QM (as mentioned before).
For used guitars I would look at the RG7621 for the best bang for your buck (also known as the RG15271 Prestige from 2003). They only came in black, but for what you'd save on price you can spend on a new color paint. The Prestige RGA321F in Blueberry burst is another option. It's a damn nice guitar.
The Alexi is a neck-thru so if that's important and you still need a fixed bridge, the RGT6EXFX is about your only choice....again it only came in black.
If your willing to go with a trem and block it, There will be a WORLD of great guitars in your price range and fit the rest of your wish list.
