Give me some recommendations please :(

I am looking for a guitar, in the 700$ range, new, and I have some specific requirements.

Preferably set neck/neck through as I need upper fret access. I could take a bolt on, but it would have to have a good neck join so that I could still have good upper fret access.

I don't want a floyd. No offense, but I want either a 2 point trem, a TOM bridge, etc. A trem is nice, but yeah I guess I could sacrifice it if really needed.

I need good tones, and a few of them if possible. I play through a marshall dsl50 head and 1960 cab, and I have some overdrive pedals.

I tried an Ibanez SA model, that had a trem, it had a grey flame maple cap, and it played NICE...just am not positive if it is for me yet.

I would really appreciate some recommendations. I was also looking at a Schecter C1 which I liked the neck on too.

Stay away from anything with a SAT-PRO trem.

Because its the worst sort of trem you can buy, it never stays in tune. I owned one its not as though I did dive bombs or anything like that just didnt stay in tune even for the little vibrato stuff I did. I had it checked 3 times and they said it was fine but they just suck dont buy it if you plan on useing the trem.

usually it is the string binding within the nut that causes tuning issues...tuners do not slip, it is a common misconception, but yeah, if you see how tuners actually work, you will see that it is impossible for a tuner to slip and put the guitar out of tune. It has to be the nut.

so yeah...I guess these guitars don't have a very well cut nut?


I am seriously thinking of getting a schecter c1 lol...
