I'm looking for a new guitar solely to play metal.
Here are the spec's I'm looking for.

Fixed Bridge (I hate tremolo systems after my last purchase)
6 or 7 string (I don't really care)
Emg Pickups
Mahogony Body
And looks awesome.

Right now I'm liking the ESP LTD Deluxe EC-1000.
Feel free to suggest anything you think is a worthy contender.

It seems like esp is the best way for you to go. I bought the EC-400 last year and I would definitely recommend it.

I know you said you dont want a tremolo system but the BC Rich Delux Jr V is a very good guitar it has everything you were asking EXCEPT for that it has a floyd..... OR if you have the money and want EXACTLY what you want get this one

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.

i was VERY close to buying one of these a while back. it seemed like a bad choice for me at the time and i ended up getting an amp, but it's a sick looking guitar! i love the flat black. there's a 6 and a 7 string version, in case you were dead set on getting one or the other. if you're not sure i'd go with the 6 stringer.

obviously not a huge deal of versatility out of a single pickup and no tone knob, but i love the simplicity of it. you either love it or hate it

Another person on the "I NEED EMG TO PLAY METALZ" bandwagon then?

I'd say go for an ESP.


Well, I would prefer some special Dimarzio or SD, but they don't normally get built in stock guitars. Emgs are probably the pickups I like best without swapping them with the stock pickups.

Get a hardtail ibanez xiphos if you want duncan's, it is mahogony, 24 frets, neck through, and has really high output passive duncan pickups for $700

Get an ESP.

This is kind of how I look at things when it comes to pickups:

Jackson= Seymour Duncan
Ibanez= Dimarzio
ESP= EMG's

I'm actually trying to get rid of an ESP Ltd Deluxe EC-1000 in Classic Black finish (shiney).

I bought it about 2 years ago and have used it sparingly cause I never really got in to the EMG's. I prefer DMZ. Immaculate condition too.. very minimal fretwear. Where is it you live?

Yeah but most ESP's come with EMG's. Same with Jackson, they have a series with EMG's, but most of thier guitars have Seymour Duncan. Ibanez is the same case.

I live in Virginia. I kinda wanted the black one that wasn't shiny and had the gold binding. Sorry to be picky, but this is a huge purchase.

Not a problem. I can say.. it's a great playing guitar. One of the best I have played. Really good feel to the neck. Just not my kind of style, and that's why I'm losing it.
