You can play anything on any guitar, also a lot of your tone comes from the amp.
And there's no guitar which is only suitable for ONE thing like cheesy metal riffs.

yep me to.


OP, also remember that a guitar isnt made for just a single style of music, hell Albert King used a flying V for blues.
When you get it just muck around with the tone, if you find you dont like it sell it.

there`s nothing wrong with that ibby, you are making assumption based on the LoZ active pickups and the reputation you have formed in your own head that it`s solely for metal based on looks and what genres other artist with ibbys play.....not all ibby players play metal, if the pickups are causing you concern you can always retro fit passives at a later date.

It'll be fine, like previously stated, you can buy new pickups if needed but a lot of versatile players use Ibanez guitars.

that guitar could be used for almost any style, like the people said before me, your amp has alot to do with your tone, if you want a more single coil sound you could just put some dimarzios in it with a coil tap

Fair play, I usually assume 2 pup guitars are 3 way.


It does have a 3 way, but that can be changed easily to a 5 way if you know what you're doing. My 2 pickup Carvin has a 5 way.

TS, you need to rid yourself of the misconception that your guitar defines your tone.

Very much to the contrary. Your guitar fine tunes your tone definitely, but the very foundation of it, the bulk of it, at the very least 80% of it, is coming from your amp. Different guitars will give your tone different characteristics, but no guitar will ever determine whether your amp will pump out metal or country or blues or etc.

It's a very common belief held by the uninformed that guitars have a massive impact on your tone and dictate what you can and cannot play, but this is simply as far as you can get from the truth.

Now wait, thats not nessesarily true. John 5 has one rig and one amp, basic setting. He changes guitars for different songs. Every guitar sounds different. But at the same time, if u give eric clapton a bc rich, hes still gonna b eric clapton playin the blues.

why cant i judge it by youtube clips


Sound quality on most youtube clips will be crap. A lot of people showing off their guitars are youtube are crap. Unless you know exactly what rig they run the guitar through and exactly how they recorded it and the quality they uploaded it then you won't have an accurate impression of the guitar.

Personally if that's gonna be your first guitar I'd feel lucky. I started with a Squier strat, something I think a lot of people can relate to.

The Strat/Tele debate is alot like picking a starter in Pokemon, each is great at something and can cover other fields well, it's just what they do good and great that makes 'em different

i never practice through an amp though and cant cause i have a line 6 bass amp
#22
you can run a guitar into a bass amp but not a bass into a guitar amp, it won`t sound amazing but its feasible.
