Ok this is the last time i'm posting a thread on this
Epi Slash, Dean Angel of Deth VMNT, ESP LTD EC-1000, or Ibanez S470DXQM
My amp is a Drive but i'm getting a Randall RX120RH and RX412 Half Stack soon
I play mostly metal but also rock, blues, grunge, and shred
Which of these guitars should i get, or what is something similar that's better?
My budget is $1200 or less preferably.

Shred wise, anything but the Slash.

Unless you feel comfortable with the odd neck profile.

your best bet is NOT TO ORDER IT BEFORE PLAYING IT.

Go to a nearby Guitar Center and play them all before you buy one, so you know if you like it or not.

My GC doesn't have the Angel of Deth or the Ibanez

And when i played the Slash it was really confortable but i'm concerned about quality
It IS an Epiphone after all

get a jackson rx10d. it has a slim neck great for shredding, the pick-ups are these "duncan design" pick-ups but they are great for rock and metal.

Don't worry about the Epiphone factor when its a Slash sig..

anything for $700 is gonna be amazing.

That angel of deth has nice graphics but for 200 bucks less you can get the silver VMNT with the same specs, which is a guitar i think is awesome. The neck is a bit different from other deans though.. bit more D-shaped. But its a great guitar all together!

The EC1000 would be the other options. You can get them with duncans so theyll be extremely versatile. (the VMNT has duncan livewire's for mustaines sound but ive seen some in shops with JB/Jazz combo... both the angel of deth and the silver one)

both quality guitars.

No doubt in my mind at all; it has to be the Ibanez S470. It's a fantastic guitar and will certainly last you a long time, especially with an upgrade to the pickups.
