hey can anyone recommend a good metal guitar for UNDER 300 bucks?
i need something that has decent pickups and a thin neck.
some guitars i was thinkin were these:
Jackson JS30KV king v
Esp Ltd Viper 50

i would prefer it if it can be white or green.

For a "good" metal guitar, 300 isn't gonna really cut it. Try to save up 500ish and the the doors open. Esps are great for metal, and ibanez is too. I personally like schecters, they feel great

for $300, you should look at the lower end ESP LTD line like the viper you were looking at. Very well built for the price. However, you might score something better if you look for a used one.

Ibanez RG321, though pups are subpar. If you find that your guitar doesn't "sound" right then it might be worth looking into buying a new amp

The ESP LTD MH-103 I bought I got for $300, because MF matches any competitor's price.

It's blue though... But it's a great axe none-the-less. ESP's are great starters. Can't vouch for their higher end stuff.

Ibanez S Prestige (Bubinga Top)
