I really like heavy feeling guitars, SG's and strats feel like they are going to float away from me. Besides the obvious Les Paul, anything else out there?


Thanks.

make a guitar out of reaaaaally dense wood. you'll get good tone! =D also sharpen the edges, for beating off the screaming... (wo)men?
Soon, death metal's drums will be so fast only computers will be able to listen to it.

94? Not bad. It shall improve >=)

I picked up a vintage LP at Guitar Center and almost fell over from expecting it to weigh what LP's typically do. That thing was a friggin ton. So yeah, get a non chambered LP.

+1 to the non-chambered/weight relieved Les Paul... I think you have to go all the way to the Custom Shop for something not chambered or weight relieved, though.

I played a Custom at GC and it weighed almost as much as me. Seriously, I'm a small guy.

I've heard of artists having their instruments chambered and putting lead into the chambers to give it a heavier feel. However, this was sorta before the guitar was completed and could probably present a problem to things already made ^.^

A reviewer on Amazon.com reviewing an album by the band "HiM", said that HiM is "fag metal".
Can someone explain to me what is this sub genre of fag metal? I have never heard it before.

Even if the custom shop doesn't weight relieve models, they still use light examples of wood. Most of them clock in at about eight or nine pounds. The only really heavy ones and the customs.

You want heavy? Get a '70s Les Paul Custom and invest in back pain medication.

my schecters are as heavy as les pauls and then some.

try a C1 Blackjack ATX model (heavy, mahogany), or a Hellraiser Avenger (lighter, mahogany, with maple top). But they have great balance too, standing or sitting.

I don't know a lot about Schecter's, but I see a lot of UGers like them. What are they good for, what aren't they. Where are they made? If any one could answer those kind of things I'd be appreciative.

Schecters available to the public (ie not artist endorsement, which would make custom shop models available) are all made in South Korea, but don't let that put you off; they're made in the same factory that ESP/LTD guitars are so the quality's top notch. If you can nab one like the C-1 Plus, Class or Hellraiser that's got coil tapping/splitting capabilities, then it can do just about anything, especially if it's got some Seymour Duncans. I'm gunna throw a hot rodded set in my Hellraiser to warm up my sound, but still, my Hellraiser can do a lot of different genres.

is not that heavy

try looking at telecasters, the weight varies so sometimes you can find one thats basically just a big block of wood.

Just look for an electric with a large body on it. Look at something like an Explorer, Dean ML, Iceman, etc. I personally love a heavy guitar, hence my Deans....

Aside from the obvious LP, Try an ESP, a Dean, or a Schecter. Godins are also pretty weighty.

I'm a fan of Schecters... most of them are solid mahogany so they'll have plenty of weight to them. I'm also a fan of the ever popular Les Paul.

Some explorer's are heavier than lps, and are pretty huge. Try korina explorer.

Sorry guys, but my Hagstrom Select swede. First off, there is so much wood (solid mahogany, and no chambering) that a Les Paul Case won't even close on it, even if I could find one to fit the guitar in. I have to use a 3/4 acoustic bag, as that is the only thing I could find, and it barely fit in there. It's a real neck killer, my friend, who is 6-4 and 280, big gibson vintage guy, has problems with it after a while. We both agree this is more of a lap guitar.

To add to it, the SS has the Gresch style neck, so it's one big solid chunk of wood at the neck and the base. I've seen the the others listed here, nope, they are lighter.

Mines a big, fat, blue, bitch, but I love her. I have to use a bass guitar strap for her though. She even outweights my Jazzmaster bass clone, and that's saying a lot.

what the?? chambered it, then put some lead on the chambers, that would make it heavy, why chamber if you will just put lead on it. shheeessshh..
