Cheers everyone...

I'm thinking around $600 as a budget.

I listen to a lot of Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, RHCP, and some metal. I currently have an Epi Les Paul and a Line 6 Spider 4 15 watt. I prefer to get an owned but I have nothing against new

I like my Epi LP but I feel like there much better for me. I've been wanting to play a lot more heavier shit like Tool, Godsmack, LoG, etc. So what are some guitars I should check out?

What you need is a new amp. Especially if the guitar is still serving your needs and feels good to play.

ESP LTD F-50 + Tonezone
Cort EVL-Z4 + X2N
Cort EVL-K47B

Marshall Valvestate 8100
Randall RG1503
Bugera 333
Peavey Rockmaster preamp

Line6 Pod X3

I've only been playing for about 6 months so im still learning all that shit. I just want a more "metal" sound, something like an Ibanez or an Omen 6 was what I was thinking. Since I live in apartments its kind of hard to really ****ing jam, what are some good ones to check out?

Seriously, almost any HB equipped guitar will do metal just fine. Don't get me wrong, a new guitar is sexy, and we can help you find something "metal", but upgrading the amp will help you much more than a new axe.

That said, almost anything from Shechter, Fernandes, BC Rich, Dean, or Ibanez with 2 or more HBs will do the job. I'd avoid anything under $500 new from any of those except Ibanez or maybe Fernandes unless you catch a sale*. Look for high output passive HBs or even actives like EMGs.


* Fernandes is having just such a sale, FWIW.

Given what you've talked about, I'd suggest the Dragonfly or Revolver: http://www.fernandesguitarshop.com/elite/60-dragonfly-elite.html
