I could really use a new guitar. right now I'm playing a Dean MLX and I want an upgrade. I play alot of different music but I LOVE High-Gain Amps/Rediculous amounts of Distortion. I've played alot of guitars but I need to know some really good one's to check out. I'd prefer that it be somewhere around $500 or $600. I really don't like the idea of paying 1000's of dollars for a guitar.

Other than buying a guitar, I'm interested in building/ customizing a guitar too. If you know any guitars that can sound good with some mods, tell me. I could use another guitar project.

What amp are you using and what specific styles do you play? Are you willing to go used?

Washburn HM series. Washburn gives you the most for your money in my opinion.


Fixed.

We should probably wait for TS to tell us what features he wants and what amp he uses before we start randomly suggesting guitars.

I'd look into Schecter. They have guitars in this price range that are great for high gain distortion.

Indeed he did,but we don't know if said distortion is coming from pushed tubes or a pedal,and what he wants as far as bridge,frets,pup configurations and all that other jazz goes.I was just being practical for once on UG .

His profile says a Vox DA5 and a DS-1. I only got a quick glimpse though.
Gear:1991 Fender MIJ Jazz/Squier VM Fretless Jazz -> Pitchblack -> Way Huge Green Rhino -> Boss OC-2 -> Boss DD-7 -> Markbass Tube 800 -> SWR 4x12.

Flat wounds. Flat wounds on everything. Everything is a little fatter when it's flatter.

How about a used Gibson.Try a LP special, a Sg standard used, or a flying V used.I have a flying V and it is Distortion Heaven.

I almost forgot about this thread!
I like tube and pedal distortion. I've played a Gibson V but its more expensive than I'd like. Has anyone played a Schecter V-1 or a damien? Those seem o.k.

jackson.

i got a jackson DX10D (about $250-300 used), and it is absolutely fantastic for metal and that high gain shredder sound.

plus, jackson floyd roses are some of the best licensed floyds available.
