Hi,
So I wanna buy a new guitar. I have a budget of $3000. I play more of speed/thrash/heavy metal. I'd like to stick to brands like Yamaha,Gibson,Fender or ESP.

I have a Gibson Les Paul Custom that I bought for $2500.00. I put the gold blackouts in it since I play metal more. I love that guitar. That thing is my baby. Of course I'm biased since that's really the only nice guitar I own.

What're you looking for? seriously, be more elaborate. I'd go with ESP. Their V's are amazing.

But I don't know if you want a les paul style body, or a V, or passive pickups, neck shape etc.

buy SRV Stratocaster

I'm lookin' for guitar for shredding and soloing stuff! I prefer HSH pickup config. and no tremolo required although if present thats a plus.

Honestly i'd go a top of the line Ibanez Prestige for that kind of money or an ESP Horizon II


I've tried ESP Horizon II before and I'd say its good but its somewhat like ESP Jk-1 I own!

lol if you want a tremolo i would recommend a jackson (kelly or soloist), if you don't want tremolo probly a gibson, if you like strats like me you should buy a strat, and if you like more chord sound i would recommend a telecaster

So you've got a nice ESP, and a nice Gibson, and now you want to drop another 3 grand? What amp do you have out of interest?

That's a piece of art, you tried it? i would tell you to try one or more other guitars b4 picking it, i never tried any of that price range...
all i gotta say is that if you liked the sound go for it!
