So my friend asked me that she wants a new electric guitar. She said she wants it to be a guitar that plays well for metal and that's pretty much it.

So UG what guitars would you suggest? Also sorry if this is the wrong forum

$4000!? Ibanez or ESP and a decent 50 watt amp i'd say..

so she has 4000 for a new guitar, obviously doesnt no much about music and guitar so get her to get a guitar around 1000 Downwards

^What he said, if she's in doubt which guitar is good for such music, 4000 is too much to spend, go with a cheaper one first.
