Hello UG,

I'm looking into buying a new (second) guitar.
I play mostly hardcore/post-hardcore/metalcore, my budget is around €500,
I live in Kortrijk, Belgium, I prefer new, I've been looking at the following guitars:
Ibanez ART500E
Epiphone les paul custom midnight limited edition

I guess that's everything in a nutshell,
please recommend me some other guitars.

Thanks,
Bauwke.

If you like those kinds of guitars. Neck-thru, active pickups on most. Floyd and non-floyd versions and also good colors. However, they are on order because they haven't been released yet. If you need a guitar NOW, and don't wanna wait, I'd suggest looking into the LTD guitars, 100 series or above. Jackson or ESP are great for heavy stuff.
ESP/LTD F-50
1989 Kramer Showster
Rogue RADH Acoustic
Fender CD-60 Acoustic
Washburn XB-100 4 string
Peavey Millenium AC BXP
Fender Rumble 150
Crate BV60H Head
Crate BV412 Cab
Vox AD15VT

They look like decent guitars, and are in my price range, if I get a chance to try one, I certainly will.
Since I have only owned 1 electric guitar (and 1 acoustic) I don't really know what I like, but I'd like to try some active EMG's.
My current guitar is a Cort KX5, which I like, but I want another guitar for other tunings or just to have a better quality guitar.

I'd get the Epi, drop a 60 in the neck and call it a day.


Are the 60s better than the 81s?

Thats entirely subjective. In my opinion i like the clean tones i can get out of a 60 in the neck much more than the 81 or 85.

Ibanez Darkstone DN500. Got one today, it's amazing. It's more like a Les Paul than an Ibanez.

I will post a review soon.
