Is that Chuck Norris in your avator? I never thought of him as a shredder really... a shredder of bodies maybe.

Charvel Superstrats. Just search on eBay for Charvel. They were extremely popular in the 80's. Very hair metal. I think that Fender Japan also did a contemporary strat for a short time that was geared towards metal.

You could buy a strat and put more metalified pickups in it.

Why does image matter? If it sounds good and plays well, who cares what other people think of it. It's not the way it looks that matters, it's how it plays and sounds.

Look for a used 80s Fender HM Strat. It's a strat, feels like a strat, but doesn't look or sound like one. They were made in Japan, and were kickass guitars.

They come in many colors, not just this crappy green. They also had models with maple fingerboards and different pickup configurations, but all had at least a humbucker in the bridge, and a Kahler Spyder bridge,

this point is not worth arguing since it was given that image is important.

Think how wierd Kirk Hammett looked in the "One" video, headbangin with a strat, and that was thrash, I can't imagine much better playing black metal on one.

You could always cover it in the blood of sacrificed virgins, that would knock it's black metal points up a bit.

id say get just get a black double fat strat and put some reallu hot pups in it, if it isnt black metal enough for you spray paint a baphomet on it or something.
#21
Why not get it in all black? You could get a black one with a black pickguard. That would look pretty metal.
