Okay, I know there's thousands of threads like these, but I really would like to know.

Okay, so I've been playing for a little over a year now, and I want to get a new guitar, as I'm currently rockin a starcaster, which just doesn't work for playing any CoB stuff. I decided a little while ago that i'd get an Ibanez RG, but I started hearing bad things about them, so I think I'll check w/ you guys.

I play mostly metal, but I also play a little blues, classic rock, hard rock, and a little pop. I would like a metal oreinted guitar, though.

I absolutely can't go above $400, though. and I don't expect to gig with it anytime soon, but if it could hold up while gigging that'd be a plus. If you must know my amp, it's a roland cube. I want a new guitar for better playability, vs. my starcaster.

Thanks!

My guitar I just ordered 2 days ago should be for you! Look up Danelectro Dano Pro. It's a 1959 reissue.

Wikipedia: The reissue has a fully adjustable bridge and a full scale neck of 19 frets with the neck connecting to the body at the 14th fret. Because of this, playing the higher frets is nearly impossible. Its light tone and slight twang makes it very suitable for playing jangle pop, surf music, country music and blues. Guitarist Magazine said "if it's Jack White or Jon Spencer dirty fuzzbox blues you are after, it's here in spades, alongside with Beatles-in-Hamburg rock 'n' raunch, garage punk venom and eighties indie jangle.

And I happen to adore Jack White, so thats part of why I'm getting it. All the colors are a neat faded color. The guitar doesnt have a standard body shape. It's more square. I fell in love with it last year when I bought my first guitar, but this one is 350$ so I passed on it. It really reminded me of a guitar I could see Courtney Love using though.

Considerit!

me, a guitar prodigy? that's great!

I hope that you were joking.

I meant bodom as in their simpler riffs, like sixpounder, angels don't kill, stuff like that.

get an rg321, low end rg floyd roses arent amazing, but a fixed bridge are rg would be a fantastic guitar.


Oh, cool. What about the RG2EX1? I was looking at that one.
