Hey.
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.

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.
