So, I'd say I'm an intermediate player, and I wanna get a new guitar, but only have a $300 budget. I'm probably either gonna get a Peavey Mystic or a BC Rich Gunslinger retro. The Peavey Mystic is a vintage 80s guitar and is US made. The pickups can be split from humbucker to single coil. The BC Rich Gunslinger is Korean made, and has a seymour duncan super distortion in it.

BC Rich Gunslinger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DvdEN7933Y

I mostly play Hardcore punk, thrash, and crossover

So, which would you get?
Based on the videos alone having never played either of these guitars, easily the Mystic. It has great cleans and still sounds nice and beefy when you throw on some distortion. As with any BC I've ever played, the cleans are weak as hell on the Gunslinger. I, personally can't deal with that. Both are absolutely awful looking guitars though.

I lold. looks don't really matter to me :p
i love 80's Peavey guitars, i have a horizon II i think its an 82 and it looks brand new. i picked it up for $100. i look for them quite often to pick up another but there aren't a whole lot of them on CL around me.

edit: american peavey guitars, the imports might be scary.
