Ok im getting a new guitar
Its between either an Ibanez GRG170DX or A BC Rich Avenge SOB

Ibanez BC Rich

I really like both
I play mostly heavy metal
The BC Rich has only one humbucker though...
Would this affect the sound much?
Oh and the BC is around 200 pounds around the same as the Ibanez

Thanks

Ibanez.

Call me biased, but anything <$800 in the BC Rich area is absolute garbage.

Your tone will probably come out with more treble than if it also had a neck pickup. In addition, you will have less options for sculpting your tone, as you only have a bridge humbucker as opposed to a neck, bridge, and middle pickup to choose from.

But is an Ibanez not more of a Thrash metal or metalcore guitar?

Thanks for the comments

An Ibanez is generally a versatile guitar, mainly used for playing rock, metal, and the like. However, with my Ibanez S520EX I have played everything from Rockabilly to Grunge. Generally with the right eq and effects, you can get a guitar to sound good playing any genre.

I'd say 600.

Save up more! But if you can't, Ibanez. My friend has that Ibanez and it's about average quality for a beginner guitar. I can only imagine how the BC Rich sounds/plays.


and it looks gay
I hate my sig

600 what? Elephants?



But you're probably right, I haven't played many BC Riches that are less than $800, simply because I think BC Rich is trash to begin with.

If the Tremolo doesn't lock, how will it be affected?


Strings will go out of tune, and using a whammy bar will rape and murder any tuning you had left.

To get a good guitar with a locking trem will cost you a bit more. And they're high maintainance. Does having one really mean that much to you?

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.

BC Rich NT

What about this one?

I think you'll regret getting it. There are plenty more subtle looking guitars that are just as br00tal and "metal" as B.C Rich's..... and play alot nicer.

Like the other guys said, Jackson, Ibanez, Schecter and ESP are nice too
