I'd post this in the Electric Guitar section instead of Guitar Techniques, you'll get more useful (and more overall) responses there.

Hi, I'm an intermediate guitarist and have been playing the acoustic for 3-4 years now. I'm now planning on buying an electric guitar. I am a metal fan, and Iron Maiden are my favorite band, however I also play music by Pink Floyd and Eric Clapton. Could you guys please suggest a good guitar for me? I'm ready to spend up to $500. I was thinking of buying the Ibanez XF350 Falchion - is it a good buy? If not, then please suggest another.

Thanks in advance


Fixed, you might get more responses if you write coherent posts.

If you're a Maiden fan, you'd probably be better off with a guitar with single coil pickups if you want to match their tone (or one with a single/humbucker push/pull pot switch). This will also be more suitable for Pink Floyd/Eric Clapton. You like metal and stuff like Pink Floyd, but your favorite metal band happens to be one of the few (it seems) that uses guitars with single coil pickups!

I would help.....If I could read your post. Learn to spell, or get off the forums. I have neither the time, nor the patience to decipher your post.

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?
