so i just got a new amp(peavey vypyr 30) and for some reason i hav started playing some metal so i was thinking about gettin a new guitar.
now i hav an epi les paul standard plus and i think i could get a much better sound for metal if i had a schecter or a ibanez maybe.
i could upgrade pickups on my les paul but i still play some rock and blues so i dont exactly want EMGs.
if any1 understands this suggestions would be great
Your epi paul should be completley fine for metal, unless you want something with 24 frets, then yea u should consider changing.
It's fine. Listen, the bridge HB has to be F-spaced/Trembucker. I'm gonna say that a high output pickup on the bridge and a moderate output (I'd suggest a Duncan Jazz in the neck) humbucker in the neck

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
