alright so right now i play my fender telecaster through a fender pro reverb amp

i mainly use my telecaster for cleans becasue it sounds amazing

but i want a good distortion heavy guitar

now im on a budget so nothing over 400 and i play lots of coheed and cambria and the fall of troy so

im kind of leaning toward this guitar


but if anyone has any good ideas....
Either a epiphone les paul standard, dot studio, or a mexi fat strat.

All good options. I'd stay away from ibanez's low end models, they don't really get good until you start spending more than around 600 bucks.

I saw this at Gutar Center for $350....

Jackson DK2M
Ibanez S, Michael Kelly Valor, Washburn Idol.

Just don't get an Epiphone or Ibby RG. They have really cheap-feeling necks.

Although to be honest, get a new amp instead. Fender distortion is dire for metal.

ESP 400 series guitar will beat anything in their price range for high gain playing, hands down. They are simply phenominal, I've been through 3 and each one delivered unbelievable performance. Might have to go used though.
