I'm no guitar expert (infact i'm pretty new to it all) but maybe people would be able to help you more if you were more specific. Say what styles of music you play, because some guitars are great for playing metal, but wouldn't adapt easily for playing blues or classic rock.

Also, in my experience, buying online is never better than buying from a shop, because in a shop you can try all the guitars in your price range and find one you like, but if you buy one online you don't know what your getting.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's

i would lean towards a jackson. but that's only because i own one and love it. i may be biased, but oh well.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

How big are your hands... do you think you need a thin neck or thick neck?

Do you play anything other than metal?

You will need an amp also... that is the other 50 % of your sound.

Are you wanting to play at home or with other musicians? (how loud do you have to be)?

Answer these and I will tell you what you need.

Good Luck

P.S. If you just want to browse for guitar models etc... musiciansfriend.com has just as many guitars as anyone else out there.

well i don't like the very thick necked guitars, i'd also think it's cool if it's a v-shaped guitar, but as i said before i want the distortion to be perfect and the palm muting to sound good, and i play alone not with friends. about the bidget i don't want it to be tooo damn expensive i just want it to be worth the buy. thanks guys
