i have $650 dollars and im tired of my current guitar. the amp i have right now is in my sig. I tend to play bands like metallica, but i also play ac/dc, gnr and aerosmith. you can suggest either a stock guitar or a guitar with different pickups. hell, you can even suggest a stock guitar and tell me what pickups to get once i have enough money. thanks for your help

A lot of music isn't really going anywhere. There are tons of fans in here going 'oh my god, <> is evolving so much and <> is so shit lol!' but tons of it is just recycled material and tired ideas.

I'd get used Epiphone Les Paul, maybe a Standard or Plus or whatever. You can find good deals on them used ALL the time.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps

well sir, i need the new guitar because the one im using right now is basically wak-mart quality and it is breaking down, so i actually need the new guitar and want something decent. The amp price range will probably be around the same, maybe a little higher

Go around finding the type of feel in a guitar you like. If you like the feel of a thinner, but wide neck with a compound radius fretboard, go Jackson. If you like a chunkier feel, check out a Schecter. Ibanez have paper-clip thin necks on their super strats if that is your thing. ESP has a variety of models. Fender and Gibson stick to traditional shapes and radii. Also, look used; in general, you get more for your money and if you get in a crunch, you can make your money back if you made a smart buy.

Schecter C-1 blackjack or the C-1 XXX

Maybe even the tonepros version of the Hellraiser


But the blacjack and XXX come stock with a set of real duncan pickups(JB and '59 set) with coil splitting so you get a lot of tonal options without having to replace them.The blackjack is 600 and I think the XXX is 500.


EDIT: Maybe explaining the pups would help

The JB is in my experience,a very versatile distortion pickup for metal and hard rock,you can squeeze a lot of sounds out of it and the only problem I've had with it is it getting muddy when played with really low tunings,but that shouldn't be a problem for you.

The '59 is a lower output,warmer pup compared to the JB and is good for classic rock and cleaner tones and warm solos.

Hope that helps
