Hello,

I wasn't sure where to put this, was kind of a toss up but I figure this forum is the most relevant. I'm a metal head, but for some reason I'm primarily interested in learning classical guitar -- but I'm going to get a Yamaha SLG 120NW
which is a nylon string piezo electric. It uses and onboard effects processor / amp to get a classical sound.

This isn't a big deal, but it's got me wondering, if I were to use something like guitar rig on my computer, or an electric amp, would it be possible to get a rock / metal tone out of it? I know if I want to play that full time I'd be better off getting a steel string electric, but honestly playing it is more of a side interest.

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

In theory you could get any tone out of any guitar when you're suing computer software but it might be hard and won't sound as good as if you tried to get the same tone with an electric guitar.

All I wanted to know, thanks.

Nah, I think this is best for what I want. Don't get me wrong, I agree with the advice that it won't make a good rock/metal guitar, but that was more of a secondary interest for me.
