Well i posted that warrior vs. les paul thing because i heard strats suck for metal/emo! do they really? i heard the hb's are the best for that genre...
#2
Well single coils arent good for your style, though you can get strats with hum's in Hss or HH.

i have a strat thats s-s-s an can handle those two genres really well but i would highly reccomend getting at least h-s-s if your stuck on strats an put like a invader pick up or super distortion or any other high output humbucker cuz even most humbuckers that come on fat strats seem really weak, so i would go for something else but like i said if your stuck on strats get h-s-s other wise get an ibanez/schecter/esp/jackson

yeah i was wonderin about that air, i was lookin at a jack warrior and i liked it, but is a lp good for that genre... i dont know... plz tell me...

Metal and emo in the same sentence?

I hate metal and I'm still offended by that. What the **** has metal ever done to you to deserve being combined with emo?

HEY! im a mcr and taking back sunday fan! i like emo, i just like metal guitars whats so bad about that?

You should definately get humbuckers. And strats have single coils (not good for heavy distortion) unless you get a Fat Strat.

Les Paul might be a good choice... but I'm going to agree Air Guitarist! and say get a SG.
#10

Strat<Warrior<Les Paul<SG???? you're confuzzling me, epiphone sg right?


EDIT: GRRR! now the models-g-400, special (hell no, i think) or g-310?

ive played both of those at GC they have necks like baseball bats

The dude from Hawthorne Heights uses an Epi SG...um, yeah. I'm not a fan of the emo genre, but don't they use the clean channel quite a bit? You could get an Epi G400 (or an Elitist SG if you've got the cash) and throw in some new humbuckers. The JB/Jazz combo would suit you. JB for your distorted tones and the Jazz for cleans.

You a hipocrite.

Getting back on topic, I don't believe that a S-S-S strat would be any good for the most out of those genres. If you want to play metal, an H-H guitar would be more appropriate. However, for speed metal, a S-S-S guitar may sound better. It really depends on what the stuff you want to play sounds/should sound like.

p.s. i wanna be able to play fast and violent like"Thank You for the Venom" google it or sumtin, thats what i want to sound like i have a spider two and the guitarist is using a epi lp wit a marshall amp
#29
well i have one but i play soft and classic rock but iw as a newb when i bought it and it is really meant for heavier stuff. I think it can do the job of metal if u amp it right. It sounds very very very good for the price and it is built well,

If u look at the reviews, most of the people play metal. So i would assume it does a good job
Edit: one guy said he liked it better than the jackson he had and his background was metal

dont take my word for it, it would be really better to get other opinions since i have absolutley no background in metal but i think and Omen 6 and a spider would be deadly (as in damn good)

warrior over lp, like i said before lp sucks for what you wanna do especially mcr SG dude, (yes i know the dude in mcr uses an lp) but you might wanna look at the damien FR or with the FR cuz thats in your price range an i belive it has emg pups an a FR if you want it
#37
I really dont know I cant tell but for metal/emo the warrior looks better for that especially since its a jackson, jackson makes good guitars for that. but I say u go and try em both out.
