If you're not a guitar snob you'll find that most metal guitars can be had for around $400 to $800, and that's a wide wide range.

Hell my schecter Omen 6 (my dad traded my PRS for booze money, and i needed a fucking guitar) which i bought on sort of a whim turned out to be a damn good guitar.

Hell my Jackson RX10D is f'ing sweet. No USA series, but damn good.

However if you need that USA-made/brand-name/I-payed-over-a-grand security, go ahead. I dont, and I'm more than satisfied with my choices of guitars.

Hell most $400 guitars can be modded a little into fucking beasts of guitars.

i'd go for an ibanez rg, even the cheaper ones are pretty good.
bought my rg2570 for 900, that's bout $1170
i think if you'd buy a cheaper new one or an better used one won't matter that much
they all have a heavy tone and are simple to play

whoever says you cant get a good guitar for $400 is an idiot.
as def said, the old high range ibanez's go for cheap on ebay and their build quality and playabilty exceeds those of new type factory made guitars.

open your eyes snobs

Well, you can get a good guitar for that price, if you don't buy it new.

You could check out the range of Cort guitars, I got myself an X-6 about a month ago, they are about $600 new but I traded in my epiphone and got it for $350. They have a cheaper model aswell but it is lacking a floyd rose. It might be good for a muck around guitar though. Check em out...

are sure about that? i was considering a *-50 Esp LTD (or *-100) with some nice seymour duncans instead of the stock pups. can anyone confirm that ? i know that stock pickups on cheap guitars suck but what about the craftmanship? they have decent reviews...

keep in mind the reviewers, since they're buying the cheapest guitars possible, are probably a bit inexperienced.

For one while i think the action on my Jackson RX10D is perfect, i know the floyd licensed tremelo is ASS. Maybe i'll buy a new bridge and put it in (original floyd or maybe even kahler...) Other than that, it needs new pickups. Since all my other guitars have SDs and Dimarzios in them, I'm gonna throw EMGs in this one to see how they work.

So you do need to do a bit of modding possibly, but in the end you'll still have spent less than an already kickass guitar. Unless of course you're not a fan of doing work to a guitar. I dont care really, cause i'm a cheap bastard. Fuck if i knew a lot about wiring I'd build my own damn cabs.
