      Might look at Xaviere. The set neck models were a Guitar Player Magazine Editor's choice last year.

        I had an Ibanez RG4EX1 for a little while, and the used market value on those are under $300. Excellent sounding guitar.

          I believe the answer is a used DK2m.  Just make sure the neck is not twisted.

          If 24 frets is not a must (which it should be) then the new Kramer Pacer Classics are a good buy new.  Outside of that, I think you are much better off working for another week or two, saving up another $200 and getting a guitar that will actually have quality components and will be satisfying to play for years to come.  Two examples would be a used Japanese made RG 550, the older ones are phenomenal, or the new Jackson DK2m pro guitar, which lists for $800 but can be had for just over $500 if one puts in the work.  These new DK2ms are special.  Stay away from cheap floyd rosed guitars, they usually suck hard.
