How do they sound if you're playing metalish stuff. I'm talking about Three Days Grace, Avenged Sevenfold, that stuff. Does it sound pretty good? Doesn't have to sound amazing.

Well mahogany guitars are numerous, there are also many different kinds of Les Pauls. I want to tell you how to redo this question, but I had a hard time just responding to this post.

James Hetfield uses Les Pauls for metal, and the guys from A7X and Three Days Grace actually all use mahogany guitars. They're fine.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

There's alot of different Les Paul's out there, but for the most part, they all work very well. It depends more on the amp and strings in my opinion.

If you wanna play heavy, I suggest Ernie Ball Heavy Top Skinny Bottom Strings (Same ones Syn uses =))

I would say i prefer a les paul to anything for playing metal, i've tried pretty much every guitar worth its salt over the years and always end up with a les paul! A different bridge pickup just tops it off

Alright. Thanks.
Also, whats a good amp for the $200 price range? I don't wanna make another topic and add clutter.

you can play heavy with any strings.

TS, you might want to read the stickies in the Guitar Gear and Accesories forum. there's a list with a lot of cheap AND good amps.

A good amp for those bands you listed would probably be the Peavey Vypyr 30, Cube 30, or the one i have in my sig. I really like the Vypyr.

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.

Or if you want a tube amp, check out those Crates.

To end this thread, yes. Mahogany is good for metal.

To correct the end of this thread, the wood a guitar is made of doesn't have nearly enough effect to determine what genre it can play.

The wood that a guitar is made of is actually extremely important to the guitar's tone. What I was saying, though, is that you can play metal with a mahogany guitar. This is very true. In fact, mahogany is essentially the most popular wood among metal guitarists. I don't mean to say that mahogany is only good for playing metal. Mahogany is just great wood in general.
