think for yourself?

i don't mean to sound like a prick, but you should either be more specific or decide for yourself by going out to guitar shops and just trying guitars you like the look of.

everyone hear thinks they are an expert.. some more so then others, and they'll just tell you to get their favourite guitar.. so yer, visit your local guitar shop!

If you play classic rock as well as metal i dont recomend getting a metal guitar like an ibanez, Hollow bodies make great classic rock guitars, like The gibson 355, epiphone sheridan, epiphone casino, epiphone riveria, epiphone dot.

I dont know how tose will sound playing metal, so a very good compremise may be a Gibson/Epiphone SG they are brilliant all round rock guitars and its likely your classic rock heroes will have picked one up some time.

but as i said before, you really gotta go to a guitar store and try out some guitars.

Metal, ESP MH-250, that's what Charles Hedger from Cradle of Filth uses.
#15
Jackson Randy Rhoads Flying-V (one with a Floyd Rose Bridge; either the RR3, Pro RR3, or the Jackson Performer comes with a Floyd too....& that one should be a bit cheaper then the other ones)
R.I.P.:
Randy Rhoads (December 6, 1956 – March 19, 1982)
Dimebag Darrell (August 20, 1966 – December 8, 2004)
Les Paul (June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009)
Ronnie James Dio (July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010)

$10 says you like it but can't admit it.

I can tell
I'm not racist.

I hate everyone the same.

First it depends on your buget. High, $2000 or more or less than $2000. Second, what type of music are u into. Metal. rock, classical etc. Third, go 2 some guitar shops and try out some that u like. For good value, sound and effect I would recommend either a: ESP, Fender, Ibanez, Gibson or a Epiphone guitar. These are all pretty expensive guitars, but the price is worth it for the guitar. These are the best brands around. Anyone one of these brand's of guitars are worth buying. Last u 4 ages. PEACE OUT and ROCK ON!!!!!!!

this guy knows what hes talkin about, but it might help to go to a MH-400, better pickups, 81/85's instead of hz's. nech-throught-body constructionand all that good crap

Ok, if you wanna save up, and you play classic rock, get a Peavey Rotor EXP
it's up to 450 and it AMAZING for any style, but it can sound like AC/DC for me through my Marshall.

If you wanna shoot higher, get an SG...that's all you'll ever need ^^

so here's my suggestions:

Peavey Rotor EXP-400-450

or

Gibbson SG-1500-2500 (Many many models within this price range)
Gear:
Gibson LP
Marshall
DF-7 Foot Peddle

Yes the MH-400 is awsome, but it is set-thru construction, not neck through.
Guitars
Agile 3100 CSB
ESP MH400 w/ Trem-Setter
Epi G-310
Applause Acoustic

Amps
1968 Fender Vibrochamp - Great amp, only $100 fixxer-upper
Line 6 Spider II

REMEMBER, ALL TONE IS SUBJECTIVE!

Threadstarter, your dad is only partially right. New Humbuckers will improve the sound, but not by much. A budget would be nice. Cause I could just tell you to get a R8 or R9 Gibson (Custom shop '58 or '59 Les Paul FYI) but if you don't have $5000-$7000, that suggestion isn't going to be much help. I do recommend a Les Paul, cause they CAN do metal, but the upper fret access is more difficult. Go to a guitar store and play every guitar in there that is in your price range, and buy the one you like best.
