hey you guys, need your help for a new guitar with christmas round the corner and all! So here's the deal! Preferably either a les paul shape or a telecaster, I play mainly metal and rock, but would like some nice clean sounds too! The budget could probably be up to about £450 at a push £500!!!

You've already got a Les Paul so is there something wrong with your Epi LP?

used Gibson LP studio, or a used LTD EC-1000, or a PRS SE tremonti.

If you want a Tele for metal, find one you like and you will probably want to change the P/U's in it. Most tele's will play rock just fine stock, you will probably find the need for hotter pickups for metal.

the jim root tele is really a stunning guitar! A bit out my price range but I was looking at this... http://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/electric_guitars_detail.asp?stock=06030813034818


Yeh that should do the job perfectly, well unless your planning on playing death metal or something like that, although ive always wondered why ive never seen anyone playing one of those anywhere, it seems to be great value for money and looks pretty sweet.

That tele will do metal, the pearly gates is hot enough for it, but it will sound like lamb of god somewhat.

The guitar doesn't always make the sound. Things like fuzzboxes (or distortion pedals, as they're called now) can make even a Strat have that heavy sound. Amps are also a factor. Plus, pedals and amps are (often, not always) cheaper than a new guitar, even when bought together. Try something like a Boss SD-1, DS-1, etc.
