I propose the Hello Kitty Paradox: Making no attempt to be metal is the most metal thing there is. Therefore the "least metal" instrument cannot be defined. Therefore the "least metal" instrument cannot be defined since it exists simultaneously as the "most metal."

Explanation: Metal-ness exists as a continuum, with peaks on both ends. Guitars that are supposed to look aggressive and heavy are of course very metal, but guitars that were designed to look bright and happy become metal by way of being so cheerful that only the most psychopathic of smelly neo-vikings are insane enough to use them. Using a bright pink strat marketed to teen girls shows that the metal-ness of the player has transcended the bounds of instrument color or type. Therefore the least metal guitars are also the most metal guitars

Cf. The Hello Kitty Strat is the most metal guitar known to man.

I'm going to second the hollow body. Never seen a metal band play a guitar like that. I can't imagine it would work very well wither. Talk about some serious feedback.

Absolute truth. Therefore I only play Hello Kitty strats covered in Thomas The Tank Engine stickers.

Wes Borland used to have a signature Yamaha hollow body, as well as Emil Werstler. Whether or not you think what Wes does is metal or not, that guitar dealt with a lot of very high-gain playing.

Between its looks and its MSRP of US$21,499.00, you won't find a metalhead playing a Gibson Citation:

I love everything that has been said in this thread, but the above ^ almost sounds like a challenge. If no one can find me a picture of a Citation being played by a metalhead, then I believe I have my life's challenge in front of me. Master of Puppets on a Citation through a Mesa Recto...

My personal take on this, since the Hello Kitty Paradox was mentioned, would be a guitar, that is in the middle of the road, and that totally COULD do metal, but you never see anyone do it, because it would be too hard, such as this:



And before anyone says metal can't be done on acoustic guitar, please, search on YouTube. Some of THE best metal sounds given the other gear used. The problem would be the damn feedback.

P.S. I stumbled upon the Jim Root Jazzmaster looking for this... Some Hello Kitty Paradox for ya, right there. Everything, truly, has already been done.
The above post is in terms of 'YMMV' and 'IMO', etc...

I don't think the price is the barrier. There are enough metalheads with money who could afford that or even more expensive guitars.

And with hundreds- if not thousands- of brands out there, obscurity will play into things as well. I doubt we'll ever see metal get performed on a Myka, Teuffel, Spuler, Jersey Girl, TimTone and so, so many others.*

(Even if it actually does!)


* Possible exception: a UGer who plays metal and owns a guitar from one of these brands and- after reading this thread- posts a video of him/her doing just that. I recall Stealthtastic bought a Teuffel, for instance, but he flips axes like people change their socks. And he may not play metal.

The following statement is true. The proceeding statement is false.

Damn, I wanted to say hollowbodies.

I also wanted to say something along the lines of "guitars with Christian symbols on them", but then I remembered Tony Iommi.
