hey getting a Jackson Js Warrior it has alder wood. does alder sound any good for metal?
Not too good for metal. But, great if you'll be playing leads. It's tonal character is very bright. Consider mahogany for rhythm.
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!
i like you guys lol.

Umm alder is good for metal but usually for lead playing metal soloing stuff like that. not to great for rhythm stuff. But you gotta think kirks pick ups sit in Maple because his guitars are all neck through maple with alder wings. as james guitars are neck thru maple with mahogany wings so that makes a difference

Well if you are in a band, and the rhythm guitarist uses this IC400 with super muddy and powerful distortion, the the bright tone of alder might help you cut through the mess, otherwise..you can start being an oddball and go start a new trend if you ever get there:P

how much you willing to spend Metal_Fiend69?

umm well this jackson warrior im getting it brand new from the store for $550aus but id say $800 be my limit cause im just a beginner
you could always get an ibanez rg321mh which has a mahogany body. also hope you got an amp aswell mate dont want to just have an electric guitar without the amp
