so i go to school with this group of "metalheads". they like lamb of god, five finger death punch, avenged sevenfold, atreyu etc. one of them i used to be in a band with and he listens to all the kids in the metalhead group. he plays guitar but is not really very good. he has a hard time with power chords. all he wants to do is get jackson and schecter guitars. i tell him to buy epiphones and ibanez and he doesnt listen. so how do i tell him not to get those

so what's wrong with jackson guitars? imo they're better than ibanez and epiphones.
it's all about taste.

but, let him waste his money (yeah, waste because if he's not good and wants good guitars they won't make him better).

well im just trying to save him money and make him realize hes not that good yet. i personally have played and love both of those brands of guitars

i find Jackson gets me my favourite tone, where Ibanez just doesnt work for me, its all about the tonal preference, but, if he cant play for crap, tell him to get an Encore and STFU

So what if he wants a higher end guitar. Let him do as he pleases.


After he gets one, sneak into his house, murder his family, tie him to the bed and steal it.

leave him alone, let him do what he wants, he's his own person, and what he buy does not effect you. and since when is a epi bettter for a guy who wants to play that kind of music? no matter the skill level, if you play metal you get a brand suited for said genre.

I still don't understand how the first 3 sentences in Famous' post have any relevance to this thread.

Capitalization in paragraphs longer then 4 sentences is necessary, especially ones with so many chances for compound sentences.
