with that said, keep in mind i also dont mind putting in some extra money later to buy pickup upgrades or somethin just to make it hit a little more. thanks.

i like the 1st one but if i was gonna do metal i wouldnt go for an epi because they have a classic bluesy tone, maybe an ibanez, bc rich, jackson, esp or ltd would be my first metal choices.

Thats what makes it unique. With all the metal going on these days, you HAVE to separate yourself or you'll never make it.

Definately the first....

did you just refer to the lead singer of Green Day as an ewok?

why don't you try a schecter pt? it's a tele with hb's and coil tap, allowing a wide variety of sounds.

I like the goth one, not because i'm a goth, but because i think satin guitars look really awesome (shiney guitars don't suit me at all, they look blingish and shiney). They probably all play about the same. If you want to play all that hardcore stuff get an ibanez or schekter, much better quality guitar for that kind of stuff, if you want to play a VARIETY of rock then get the epiphone.

what amp do you use? whats da budget? and im saying either the gothic just because of the aesthatics (sp?) or either the G-400 with just 2 humbuckers apparently on custom the middle pickup is muddy so yeh more money will be also spent for more pickups
#9
well the custom is a good guitar but the middle pickup doesn't do anything to change the sound, it is a beautafull guitar though, Try the G-400, or a epi goth, also It would help if we knew what amp you use,

Basically, all three of the guitars are the same aside from cosmetics.

The custom has the extra humbucker, which is comepltely useless because of the three-way switch on the guitar. 5-way would make it useful, but the three-way switch defeats the purpose.

The regular G-400 is fine. It's a good guitar, but may need a pickup change later on.

The Goth G-400 is the same as the G-400 with a "goth" finish. Kind of stupid looking IMO, but it's still probably decent.

There's also the Vintage G-400 to consider. It's a G-400 with a regular flat finish (not satin black), that's only $300. It would be my choice over the other three.

And, if you're looking to play stuff leaning more towards metal than emo, look at the G-400 with EMG's on MF. It would be a good choice as well.
