If I where you I'd shop around on musiciansfriend.com


Look at:

Ibanez
ESP LTD's
Schector
Jackson


These are way better guitars in your price range and also for what you going to be playing (METAL).

no ibanez RG35587267485 or the compulsary reccomendation of schecter c1 hellraiser custom blah blah that i see thrown about?


but enough of me being all "metal music is just noise" and honestly, go to your local music shop, tell them your budget and genre and current gear (amp) and they'll show you a few in your price range.

go on guitar center and order a used guitar. they work fine and you can get them alot cheeper then new

Of those that you listed I would go for the Cort X-11. Cort makes some surprisingly good and affordable guitars. However that wouldn't exactly be my first choice of a guitar.
I'd suggest going to your nearest guitar center or other instrument retailer and trying out everything used or new in your budget until you come across something that feels good to you. Even try obscure oddball brands. It's a very personal thing and ordering online if you don't already know if you like esp or schecter necks etc. is very hit and miss.

recently I turned it into an Esquire that impregnates unsuspecting people with my children whenever I play it.

The only good thing about my MG30 was I was able to have it in my room for 5 years solely as a place to hide cigarettes and condoms.

I have 2 Deans, one high end and one middle, and love 'em both. I wouldn't even consispder a low end Dean.

thanx everyone but i need a new one
I have an ibanez grx20z

What about the custom shop of esp?
My friend told that many jackson guitars have faults so they aren't that good compared to cort.

I want to buy a guitar soon so please suggest the best for metal riffs and guitar solos (also tapping).

Thanx

which ones have you played, actually set down plugged in hands on playing? that is what is going to help you the most.

i would erase both deans. no bueno.

the LTD 100 isn't that great but it would be my pick.

and i have never played a cort, so i won't weigh in there. i don't even know where you could buy a cort around here.

you really would be so much better off used, but i respect how you feel about your guitar and will not further comment regarding that.

After buying the ltd i'll change the pickups.

neither are very good. also it seems to be a good idea to stay away from the floyd rose bridge on a cheap guitar.
