Looking for 6 stringer, 24 frets, fixed bridge for easy tunings

Hi guys,

I already have a primary guitar which I love, but it's got a Floyd Rose which is good but changing tunings is... a pain. Sometimes I'd like to experiment with a different tuning but I don't feel like re-setting the tremolo so I was wondering about a good performer with a fixed bridge.

My number one choice would be another Ibanez, RGA321 but it's a tad expensive
ESPs could be interesting too.. namely Eclipse or Horizon but I'm not so familiar with their line of products.
Schecters look interesting too, with some nice looking models. However I have never played an ESP neither a Schecter so I wonder how the neck feels...

Any other good contenders I may be missing ? Thanks guys!

How about a nice used RGA121. I've seen these for $400 - $500

Nice... I'll keep an eye out for one of these if they show up

Another option would be another tremolo guitar and just stick to a different tuning with that one. But this doesn't allow for much diversity. I was thinking of the new PRS Torero which looks awesome! Well... but one has to measure heart vs reason

You might want to check out the Jackson guitars as well. I had a Jackson JS30 Kelly for the exact same purpose.
