Wednesday Question: Best Metal Guitars?
There is no guitar that covers every musical base in the world, but there are plenty of guitars that try to perfect just one. Perhaps the most hotly contested guitar category is in the metal genre. Metal guitars don't just have to sound f**king huge - they have to look so bada-s that you could chop a tree down with it. We're turning to the ever-resourceful UG readership to answer this week's question: What is the best metal guitar of all time? Feel free to focus on the sound quality or appearance in any measure you like. Just make sure that it's generally considered to be suitable for metal. For some ideas to get the ball rolling, think of what the big metal stars use themselves. James Hetfiled rocks an "EET FUK" Explorer, while Tony Iommi tends to use a more traditional Gibson SG. Or you could look to something more iconic like Randy Rhoads' Polka Dot V or Dimebag Darrell's Washburn 333. Take your pick if other readers agree, they'll vote for it. Post your nominations in the comments, and remember to upvote any you agree with. We'll stack up the results and post them in a horn-slinging top 10 this Friday.
