I am going to buy my first "real" guitar soon and i wanted to know whats some good guitars to get....

I've been playing for close to a year now. I play alot of thrash metal, and i hear ESP is good. I also be eyeing this ibanez that i've played at a friends house... I think its an RG... My spending limit is $500 American...

thanks in advance...

i would get an Ibanez RG321 and then gets some new pickups to put in it.

What is you amp?
What is your current guitar?
What bands do you like? Specify.
- Metallica
- Nevermore
- Opeth.

You could look into some lower priced Ibanez, they are mostly great quality except for the Edge III bridge,.

Other than that, save for a bit more if you can, it'll be worth it to get something a hundred or two.

Other than that, Push for another couple hundred Dollars for a 400 Series LTD guitar.



thanks for the advice
the thrash i listen to is:
metallica
slayer
anthrax
megadeth
bonded by blood
exodus
toxic holocaust
gama bomb

my current guitar is a knock off of a fender squier... and the amp is a silvertone practice amp...

Alrighty then, compromise:

Great amps for the price, they're less than a hundred.

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-RG-Electric-Guitar?sku=481914#new

Ibanez RG 3exfm. Great neck, cheap, 24 frets, no edge trem.

Could do with a pup swap but do that later.

Amp $99
Guitar $350

Good beginner rig.

deinitely look at ESP, considering you play metal, they are great guitars for that. I'm sure you can find one in your price range.

Ibanez is also a good decision, but be careful, some of the RG series guitars aren't great, and don't but anything with an Edge 3 trem...or for that matter, any trem. You wouldn't have any reason for it, you haven't been playing long enough to miss one.

i would get the RG321 over the RG3EXFM b/c the RG321 has a mahogany body, and i heard that it is better for metal than basswood. it also has a nice finish.

you might want to upgrade your amp as well, at least go for a 15w vypyr or micro cube

I think black doom death metal is just plain stupid. go flame on me but i can't hear nothing but shit on those songs with everything in drop A or below. also it could've been without lyrics as you'd never hear them anyway.
