I don't see any guitars.

If posting the pics isn't working for you, mention the names and I'll see what kind of advice I can give you.

Also, pick what feels best to you. Don't rush into buying anything unless you're absolutely sure you want it.

Wow Ibanez fanboy much?

Check out other companies man, there are many out there that make guitars just as good as either Ibanez or Schecter.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

Lmao....not an Ibanez fanboy at all. I have only owned one Ibanez and i got rid of it. I didn't even like it. The reason there are some many Ibanez is because I know for the price they aren't that bad. I did also look into Epiphone, ESP, Jackson, Schecter, B.C. Rich (they don't make very good low end guitars), dean, and I took about 2 hours of looking through different types of guitars and trying to match what I was looking for in a guitar to what I could find. The results came out to what I have posted in the poll. There are more I saw that I liked in different brands, but they are out of my price range. Edit- Really guys only one voter...

$300-$550 and I play metal and heavier stuff. Metalcore, Hardcore, thrash and a little bit of classical metal. Mostly heavy stuff though.

your money really goes a lot farther when buying used.

you could find a used LTD EC1000 (or really any of the 1000 series) or something for that. they are good solid guitars, i had an EC for a while).

i would also recommend a jackson DKMG/DKMGT, i am positive you could find one of those used in your price range.

Actually the guitars I have listed above I am looking at used. I already purchased an LTD EC 1000 Silver Burst -Used Yesterday. I am just waiting for it to ship. I have played it in shop. Definitely a solid guitar. I also already own an ESP LTD.

Edit: I have seen that jackson. It is sexy as hell, but I no like tremolo

so you already bought an EC1000 and you are looking for another still, or did you just not get back to the post after buying the EC1000?

that is what the DKMGT is for. hardtail through body. killer guitar, i really like cmpd fretboard radiuses.

A shitty Line 6 Spider lV. I know, I know. Most of the tone comes from the amp..I plan on getting a new amp very soon. But right now I am not thinking about that.

If you're already getting an EC-1000 (which I think is the best midranged metal guitar out there) you should save that cash for a better amp.
