im getting a new guitar for my birthday(may).
but i dont know what to gett????
i already have a Usa Fender Stratocaster but i would like a guitar that will give a good metallica-ish tone.
i can spend up to around £200.
any suggestions?
obviously something with humbuckers, preferably the ones with hi gain. Look for Ibanez / Jackson or stuff like that.. Not sure, cause i'm not in taht kinda music much.

id look at schecter, they have good guitars in that range

Listen to the man, he's Jewish.
200 Euros?

Just buy some nice effect pedals man, it's better than buying a cheap quality guitar. If that's simply not an option, Schecters make nice models in that range.

well I think Kirk hammett mainly uses ESP guitars or he did use a flying V and a jackson however these are usually over the money your looking to spend (from where I am anyway).

I think you could pick up a cheap ESP from somewhere. ESP LTDs are probably what you want to be looking for (you want to be looking for humbuckers as single coils on your strat wont have a heavy enough sound for metallica).

I'm hoping I helped you in some way I've given you a link to guitar amp keyboard with a few guitars within your price range

have a look at epiphone's too, they'r not bad ones for your price range. But ESP LTDs are good value for money.
