I am looking for a new guitar. I sold my old RG and am looking for a better guitar. my style ranges anywhere from rock tto metal but i need a thin neck and i live playing fast. I've been looking at the ESP LTD MH 1000 and also The IBanez S5470. i am a huge fan of EMGs but i also like duncans. but is there any other guitar that u all would reccomoned that i should cehck out?. i NEED good action. active pickups if possible. beutiful looks on the guitar. i like the floyd but not nessesary. so any help? thanks!!

Schecter Hell Raiser C-1 FR $850 USD

I own this axe, I really can't explain how awesome it is. I own a $2300 Les Paul, $1000 SG, $1700G&L S-500, I find this guitar keeps up with them easily and exceeds these guitars in certain areas.
The electronics are awesome, even the pots are quality. When I roll off the volume the EMGs clean up very nicely. The FR is ORIGINAL so you don't have to worry about it self destructing. Play it first, see if you like it - I love mine.

It has a nice binding around the guitar, a gorgeous quilted top, and cross inlays. It's a quality instrument at a pretty amazing price. It's 24 frets, all of which are easily accessible.
