With the right pickups and amp you can play any kind of music on any guitar. The shape of the body and wild colors has no bearing on the type of music that can be played on a guitar.

um well if you want a fixed bridge, try a fixed bridge RG, or jackson guitars, maybe ESP as well. if money's not an issue then get the fixed bridge Jackson RR1 if you want it to 'look' metal as well

Dont go for the looks. I've got a BC Rich KKV which looks metal as fk, it sounds more metal than a lot of guitars cos of the pickups ( BC Rich humbuckers). However my epiphone Les Paul custom Midnight sound more metal. (EMG Humbuckers). if you want, pick a beasty looking guitar and swap the pickups for some meaty humbuckers.
Personally I'd suggest EMG but try and find out for yourself. the amp matters too.

Bands that use EMG humbuckers (I think)
Metallica (or at least hammet)
Opeth
Testament
Black label society

Well yeah of course it could be done, but the guitar would feedback like crazy from the mass amounts of distortion used in metal.

Jackson Dinky, maybe a Randy Rhoads V
ESP M-Series, MH-Series, KH-Series

I don't know if you are wanting a baritone/7-string guitar though.

OK, well I listed a few for you!

Maybe a Schector Hellraiser if you can live without the trem.

It's actually a signature series, sorry. Kirk Hammett's signature guitars.

And be sure to look towards the bottom! Don't be frightened by the price.

Yea, look at the 202, or 203...

I like the MH-400 better though. A bit lesser price. Look up the M-1000 and MH-1000 on the internet too!

You read my mind. Shecter is the most underrated guitar. I, imo, would rather have a good shecter than a gibson. Shecters have awesome playability and you can find them with duncan or EMG pickups.

Yea, I just wish they made more of them with trems though... I think that's the big reason why people hate them.

That's not hard at all.

I would go for the Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR. Really top-notch metal guitar for under $1000. You can get it without the Floyd too, but I don't see why you'd want to.
#36
^ Seconded. the Hellraiser FR is kickass for the price and one of the better guitars in that price range for metal.
