eventually i'll be getting a jcm 900 as a new amp (mg-bad decision...)
and then after that i'll be getting a metal guitar (its going to be a while but oh well)
this is what i want:
-i'm thinking mahogany body
-emg 81/60 81/85 pickups
-i'm not sure on tremelo, if i'd want one i think i would want an original floyd rose, but again i'm not sure if i want that or hard tail
-i'll be playing metallica, megadeth, slayer, that kind of metal, not much else so it doesn't really need to be that versatile
-needs to look good, i'm sorry but if it looks weird but has an original floyd and emgs i might turn it down
-what the hell, make it all black
-sorry to just make it really really hard on you guys but....
no v's (i hate the whole sitting down thing) and i don't think and strat copies, i might be able to break on that though (i just don't usually like them)
suggestions? thanks for looking

If you're looking for a metal guitar, I'd go with Jackson, ESP, or Dean.
If you aren't looking for a tremelo, then don't go with Jackson. All the high end, good quality jacksons have tremelos (with the exception of like one or two). I prefer Jacksons over most brands but its hard to find any without a tremelo. If you want a string-thru, I'd pick ESP over Dean. Dean is a good company but I tend to find their guitars over-rated. ESP is a really good brand though. I bought a cheap ESP F-100 just to jam at lessons and easy tuning and I've come to really enjoy the tone and feel of the guitar.
So here are some suggestions:

- ESP F-100M ($239.00) [This is the one I have]
- ESP LTD Viper- 100FM ($239.00)
- ESP LTD V-200 ($399.00)
- Jackson DXMG Dinky ($449.99)
- Jackson DK2 Dinky ($599.99- $949.99)
- Jackson RR3 Rhoads ($649.99- $749.99)
- ESP LTD EC-500 ($649.00)
- ESP LTD MH-1000 ($949.00- $979.00)

And I could list a lot more. I found these on MusiciansFriend.com, I use that site for basically all of my guitar shopping needs. Usually you can get the cheapest prices there and they have a huge supply.

So if you're looking for a metal guitar, check out those guitar brands. I personally think you'd go for ESP Guitars, just because they use EMG pickups in most of their guitars and have decent prices.

Don't do this.


Anyway. You should really try the stuff out. Schecter makes some nice stuff, but you'll have to feel it out to know if you like the body if you know you dont like strat bodies.

Also, Ibanez makes some kickass stuff, despite what people say. Ive had lots of experiences with some well made Ibanezes.

i'd get a BC Rich IronBird Limited, it dosent have that much of an unusual shape but here are the specs of it :

Construction: bolt on
Body wood: basswood
Top style: bevel top
Tuners: B.C. Rich® die-cast

Fretboard: rosewood
Frets: 24 jumbo
Scale: 24 5/8”

Bridge: Tune-o-matic
Pickups: B.C. Rich® B.D.S.M.
Controls: 1 volume, 1 three-way toggle and 1 tone

BC Rich has always been a favorite of mine, i love the guitars and they've never let me down.
Crank your rig on 12, let it feedback wide-open for a good two minutes, freak your neighbors out and ENJOY THE POWER OF THE GUITAR! 'Oh, what a feeling,' and it ain't no damned Toyota!" ----Dimebag Darrell

hey those are all really good suggestions thank you,
but here's what i think:

- ESP F-100M ($239.00) don't really like that shape much, plus i'm going for active emgs
- ESP LTD Viper- 100FM ($239.00) same as f-100m
- ESP LTD V-200 ($399.00) don't like v's
- Jackson DXMG Dinky ($449.99) a cheap alternative to a nicer one, but...
- Jackson DK2 Dinky ($599.99- $949.99)...this is by far the best choice you posted out of all of these, is there difference between the DK2M and this?
- Jackson RR3 Rhoads ($649.99- $749.99) don't like v's, although its really nice looking
- ESP LTD EC-500 ($649.00) don't want a les paul copy
- ESP LTD MH-1000 ($949.00- $979.00) thats more like it but i'm not sure still
the newer esp's are kind of disappointing to me

thanks all for your help

Whatever you do, do NOT get a Schecter. I'de go with an ESP or a Jackson, seeing as what you're gonna be playing requires some speedy technique. Schecters have chunky necks and weigh a LOT, so they aren't something you want for your type of music.

I'm not crazy about emg's but I did play a scheter hellraiser once and loved it. However I played another one a while later and it sounded/played like ****. I think needed a setup, and new batteries in the emgs. But yeah I have played a nice scheter hellraiser. They look SICK in the quilted-ish red color, but if you want black by all means go ahead. They come with a OFR (one of the few new guitars that does) or stoptail so go my son and rock.

Deans are over-rated and people who buy Dean guitars (generally speaking) don't know whats really best for guitars. I'd probably buy one of the higher-end Dean's if I had the cash, but the medium and lower end guitars aren't anything to go nuts about. Jackson's are built for speed and solo's, ESP is built for kicking ass and heavy rythmn.

As for the Jackson Dinky DK2 vs. the Dinky DK2M:
The DK2M has dual Seymour Duncan humbuckers while the DK2 has two SC101 pickups and one JB TB4 humbucker. I would say go with the DK2, just because it will have more tonal variety, color options, and I've heard a lot of quality issues with the DK2M.
