You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
I prefer french asian...

Wait.. What?

Personally i don't like any of those choices, but they're all better than that SG hybrid thing that Gibson put out recently...
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Well the Dean seems like a good choice. But the Epi's neck might be faster because its unfinished like the other Zakk epi models. Maybe satin finished. I dont remember. Anyway.. Silver Dean, or Bullseye Epi.
