I'm looking for more guitar brands to discover. I'm mostly interested in shredding or metal type guitars. I already know all the main companies like (Fender, Gibson) PRS, Ibanez, Charvel, Jackson, ESP, Schecter, Dean, BC Rich, Kramer, Washburn, and Carvin. So I'm looking for other brands with good guitars that I can look into. Please, list as many different guitars as you can! The more choices I have, the better!

And please don't post if you're just gonna write about the whole "tone is in the fingers" or "the name on the headstock shouldn't matter". I know all this! I'm just looking for as many possible brands to choose from, so that I can try a variety of different guitars to compare and choose the best one for me!

Suhr
