I'm looking for a good metal guitar. I have about 1000 dollars to spend but i'm willing to go a couple 100 dollars over. I play a large range of metal from After the Burial, to Viatrophy, to Parkway Drive so I need a metal guitar that can sound good for this stuff.

Please put the guitar model and its pickups or a link to it. And if you know it, plz put the price.

Currently i have a squire and a roland cube 15 right now. That was the first equipment i got and i've been playing for 2 years now. I've definatley exausted the squire's use and need a new guitar... I need an amp to but i'll get that later so only tell me about guitars.

Oh and one last thing. Whats everyones opinions on seven and eight strings? I was looking at them but i really don't know anything about them. Should I check them out??

Come to think of it, my penis should've listened to more death metal.

if ur into those kinds of bands i would go with a esp/ltd....there sick. i have a esp/ltd ec 1000 and its so sick....amazing sustain, thick powerful sound no buzzing right out of the box. some nice active emg 81/ 60....super sick and perfect for that core sound ur looking for... im a seven string guy....i think the 8 string is a lil ridiculas...but to each his own...lol
for seven strings i would get an ibanez just cuz there classically the best 7 strings or a shecter wich are relly sick sevens and have a lot more low end eposed to ibanez mid to high end...


hope it helped and didnt make me look like a fool...lol

hmm you use a squier? save yourself money for an amp, and buy any mexican fender... i reccomend but there not really me lol. Also you can just slap some duncans on it, and its a metal guitar. get something you can fiddle with if you have money left over. Then get a decent amp which does FX (line 6 pref. i use them) and then you still got cash for acessories, like a billion picks.

Dont spend all of your money on a guitar. The guitar might be top of the line, but if you have a crappy amp, itll make your guitar sound like crap.
And jumping from a Squire to a $1000 guitar is pretty drastic. If you want a great guitar and have money left over, i suggest getting an Ibanez S520EX, which is what i have. I got it for $600 and its a great guitar. The pickups might need some replacing for the type of music you play but thats up to you.

You want a metal guitar?

Look at the ESP Alexi Series...
The Jackson Rhoads series + King V series..

Possibly Dean? ( Despite the fact you can get so much better for your money... they sitll look FXCKING awesome! ).

You're amp should usually cost more than your guitar. Get a better amp and get a better mid range guitar, don't go for the 1000's just for a guitar yet. 500-600 sounds good and maybe use 600-700 on an amp.

^indeed, ideally you should be spending 70% of your TOTAL budget (guitar and amp) on an amp, and then the remaining 30% on a guitar
