I am buying a new guitar in the upcoming months and I wanted to ask what would you recommend me in the range 1000 - 2000 euros. I am currently looking into: esp E-II arrow / E-II Horizon III FR STBLK(yes I am aware they might not be as good as the standards in some people's opinions but I don't want to buy second hand), BC RICH MK11 Warlock, Ibanez prestige RG6UCS MYF uppercut , Jackson pro RR24 , Jackson pro king V KV MB, ESP LTD JH 600. As you may have guessed I play mostly Thrash and Death metal. If you have better ideas in that price range please let me know. Thanks in advance

Well there's quite a difference between some of those guitars, and some cost a fair bit more than the others. The Ibanez has stainless steel frets which I personally love, but do you want ultra-tight pickups like the Aftermaths? I imagine the feel of the necks on some of these would differ a fair bit. Tbh, I would be reluctant to spend 2000 euros on one of those guitars, as you're approaching custom prices. So questions to ask yourself: Do you really want stainless steel frets? What sort of neck do you prefer? Do you really want a V shaped guitar? What wood do you prefer? What sort of pickups are you looking for? You may want to change them out anyway. Also, I'm assuming you'll be using the floating trem, because otherwise I would definitely pick something else.

Emperor's Child well In terms of pickups I seek raw sound something heavy and tight without that modern palm mute buzzing sound. Just a tight palm mute and punching sound overall. I am into thin necks. I would like it to be a V shaped guitar but playability and sound are first then design. For wood I must say that It doesn't matter to me in terms of fanciness rather in sound but to be fair any wood does for me as long as it sounds good to me . I like the sound of Mahogany and Alder but if you give me a great sounding basswood guitar I'd buy it. So no wood preference really. Yes I do want a trem model. I put the cheaper models too just in case. But the e-IIs, BC rich and Ibanez are all around 2000 and if that price offers significant superiorities over the cheaper ones I am willing to spend them.

You could get a custom from Mensinger and other custom shops for that amount of money.

I saw you wanted a V:

However, ESP standards are great guitars. No idea about the E2 line though.

Fisheth24 the E-II are just renamed standards so the ESP logo can only usta on custome shops and the original line. Many people say they are the same but some say they had bad experiences with them... kinda confusing but I did find mostly good reviews for the E-II basically saying they are identical to the standards as they are made by the same people in the same factory

Fisheth24 well not V in particular. Any alternative design would be nice to have but playability and sound and quality come first. And I suppose you have experience with these mensinger guys?

I own a couple of basses from them, top quality stuff. Made in Poland and shipped from Germany, proper custom shop stuff. They're a small company that have been around for almost 40 years now.

Fisheth24 nice I think I'm going on a little adventure to aldenhoven.

Do it, Adrian is really accommodating, really warm and friendly. He's been employing the same fifteen people since he took over the brand in the 90's if I remember rightly. 


If you get to go take a few pics and make a thread on your trip.

Would make for good reading!

Fisheth24 one more question. I don't seem to find custom quotes on the site. I can for example order a six string Horn model right? Because the only one on the site is a 7 string.

You would be able to, you just need to send Adrian an email:
