Hey guys I'm looking to buy a guitar with a budget of 1000USD... I own a few strats and now I'm looking for something single cut like (les paul like) I've seen a few brands like Michael Kelly, Edwards, LTD's... I play mainly metal like Metallica and Lamb of God and I can't afford an ESP... so what's next best? Thank you... appreciate the help

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Seriously, look at used guitars... should be able to find something decent new however.
BTFW: Where do you live? Where will you be making the purchase?

Your sig is retarded. Theres metal fingerpicks you can use to the same effect, thimble was a solid example. Its just a one string metal slide.

Michael Kelly are amazing. I own a JZ phoenix (60 of 'em hand made in the states)
and it is an amazing guitar. their Korean (or wherever they are made) are really nice, I know a guy who owns 60+ axes, and atleast 25 of them are michael kelly.

go for them.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I <3 ESP's but if inclusive of shipping and all... it'll be twice it's price when it reaches my place... what about Michael Kelly Patriot Custom? Anybody have experience with them?
