Never practice anything you don't have the motivation for. It will create more resentment towards your playing in the long run.

I don't know what it's like now but back in 2006 when I bought my EC1000, they had the exact same spec as the ESP series but made in Korea and not Japan. The crazy thing now is that the EC series now...

I be mosely listening to Scar Symmetry, Godsmack and Sylosis right now. I still can't decide if Godsmack are in any way part of the metal genre.

I think you should stay away from Gibsons at that price range. You'll get a much better guitar from an Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty.

I always think that at the mid price range Jacksons are better. To get a real nice BC Rich I think you need to spend quite a bit. But this is only in the guitars I have seen in the UK.

I have an EC1000 and I have to say it is a really great guitar. As far as I'm concerned it is between the quality of a Les Paul Studio and a Les Paul Standard. Although prices have gone up in recent...
