No, but you can make your guitar metal for cheap by getting some EMG Pup's.

yeah, schecter makes some good guitars, i got an omen 6 and it stands up pretty well, for my krappy amp. im getting a hellraiser soon though, and like zekk^ said, they come with active emg's for some pretty crunchin metal sound, too bad it only costs about 700 bucks

Buy a guitar with a good body wood, neck, and tremolo, for cheap and put EMG's in it, or get a hellraiser. Those are bitchin'.

I have a C1 Blackjack, I'd say it's aimed more for classic and hard rock, the 59 does cleans well and has less output, the JB is ok, with a pole piece adjustment it can be better, but still is just a decent pickup for all genres but doesn't do anything particularly well. The guitar itself is awesome, but if you're looking for a metal guitar, upgrade the pups to EMG's. I'm upgrading the JB/59 combo to an EMG 81/60 combo, but make sure you have a good tube amp as well.

I think ESP Ltd has the best budget metal guitars. They have nice hardware to start with and feel brilliant.

^ I dont think so dude.... Most ltds in the range of up to 500$ in some cases have agathis bodies, and their trems are bad.... Schecters a much better buy with REAL EMGS and a OFR.

^ That sounds like a good idea, what amp do you have though?


Marshall MG 50DFX... (yes.. yes..)

I want to upgrade that as well but guitar first..

Oh yeah I also have a Line 6 POD XT

actually its usually better to upgrade amp before guitar. but if you insist on it then do it. btw how does the line 6 sound
