I need a guitar that is ideal for metal, but is cheap as well. I want it to have a fast neck as well because I'd like to play fast **** on it.

By cheap I mean around $300-700

jackson dinky! or RR3 if youre into the V thing.
I think jackson has the best metal guitars unless you want a warmer sound or you think fat necks are fast. jackson ahs thin necks and i think ibanez has real thin necks too.

if you liek fat necks, get schecter. they have the fattest necks ever. pretty much..

Jacksons have that sexy "shredding your brains out" sound.

Ibanez or Jackson.

For Ibanez, an RG. Maybe the RG350DX or a RG3EX1 or RG5EX1 or something.

For Jackson, Dinky, Warrior, or a RR model.

But really, a lot of it depends on your amp. You could make a Squier Strat be a metal guitar with the right setup.

Maybe an Ibanez S, those are great.

Jacksons are excellent too.

Used Ibanez RG550. Extremely thin neck, good pickups, excellent trem (Original Edge).

Yes because well all know that alder bodied bolt on neck instruments are known for being very warm..........

I could dissect this post with logic and specific examples form years of playing both brands,but I will instead call you a dick and leave you with this little guy to keep you amused >

Lol... yes, basswood and alder are SOOO different tonally

TS, i agree to looking for a used ibanez (So long as it has an original edge, lo-pro edge, edge pro, ZR, or edge zero trem) or even a new one if used is out of the question (as long as it doesn't have an edge 3).

Jackson is a good choice, probably as close to ibanez necks as you can get without buying an ibanez. I've seen used DK2s go for as little as $350.
#19
the pickups of the guitars have tried in this range are terrible on ibanez guitars. overly thin and trebly however i eq'd them. jacksons were nice and warm sounding.

although i do prefer the ibanez necks, and saying ibanez iz crap is an opinion, saying they are trebly in that range is fact from the guitars ive tried.

Could you give me advice with that lol?

Check under the pickguard for the routing - if it's already routed for a humbucker then you can replace the pickguard and get new pickups. Alternatively get a single-coil sized humbucker like the Dimarzio Super Distortion S.

This thread proves Gigatiran is awesome, and a lot more awesome than your average awesome. I bet he even owns a duster like Dennis Reynolds.

u can have a jcm800 and that hting can make a squire sound like 1000 dollar guitar
p.s if u get a jackson the floyd rose isnt that good on the basic jacksons u need a midrage -expensive one to get a quality jackson

Jackson Kelly, Rhoads, King V, Dinky, Warrior, all beautiful guitars mad to shred. Like the guy above said, if you get a jackson, get a Jackson Licensed Floyd Rose, Jackson makes them great. If you choose an Ibey, not my personal choice but whatever, don't get one that has an edge 3 on it, you will hate yourself for as long as you own it.
