BUT WHY ARE THEY BETTER? Better value for money. The others are alright, but there are better guitars for the price. They cost more than you'd expect them to because they're signature models and part of the cost goes to the artist. Also, their tremolos are unreliable.

It might push your budget but it'll turn every head (especially the black one) One of the classiest metal/shred guitars around at any price.

Corey Beaulieu has a signature? Didn't know that. Out of your two, I'd go with the Ibanez because 1) it will probably be easier to shred on Ibanez, and 2) I prefer to away from signature guitars.

Realistically though, as a player you need to play both and decide which one is better for you. You can read our suggestions for days but in the end only you know what's best for you.

How about a Fender Strat???? They're pretty good for metal.

i personally wouldn't suggest a fender strat for metal, too twangy imo. A tele might work a little better than the strat, but to be honest I would look at some kind of Ibanez RG, you really can't going wrong with the higher priced RG's, absolutely great guitars imo. Also check out some ESP/LTD's. Maybe an eclipse? Or the Kirk Hammett Signature?
