I'm planning on buying my first electric guitar soon. I've been playing acoustic for almost two years so i'm not a total noob. I plan on playing hard rock and some metal. My main influences are Soundgarden, Alter Bridge, Metallica, Alice in CHains..etc... I plan on running them through a line 6 spider of some sort.

So there is the Ibanez Art100

Is the "White" kinda a shiny silver-ish color? cause if so i'll get that finish

There is the ESP EC 50

And then there is the AGILE Dauntless EMG

As you can see i have a price range of about 200-350. If you have any suggestions please tell

Thanks

i've experienced the ibanez Art100 as my friend has one and it's a damn good guitar! however i'm in the UK so haven't got the pleasure of experiencing Agile guitars, i have however heard MANY good things about them here on U-G and hardly a whisper of bad so that might be your way forward, ESP i have no opinion on, so not really going to comment there... have you tried a LP of some kind?? or jackson?
Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.

id get the esp or the ibanez but you should try them out before making any desition
also prepare for the people telling you to get a different amp

ESP or ibanez seem quite decent for starter guitars, but be sure to try them out before you buy. both the guitars are made from differend woods so theyre going to sound a little different. i would indeed get a different amp then the line-6 spider... try looking into a tube amp of some sort that fits your style just search the GG&A forums for suggestion threads and find one around your price range with the same sound requirements as you have or get your own thread up there.

hmmm.... ive only heard good things about the spider. i guess i'll research it more. Does a guitar with a white finish get grimy looking after a while?
