I need a guitar around 200-300 maybe 350, and I play a mixture of stuff, I can play Green Day, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Three Days Grace, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin.
#2
Epiphone SG or Les Paul I guess
Most of those bands (if not all) use HH guitars so those are probably some of your best bets

I'm not familiar on Ibanez, but I'm sure someone here can point you in that direction as well

id say a cheap Ibanez RG or even better an Ibanez GSA 60, its got a humbucker and 2 single coils perfect for all those types of music, and the humbucker is pretty good, Overall the GSA is great bang for your buck

Epiphone Les Pauls are good. But I think your best bet would be an Agile Les Paul. Bought from Rondo music. You can get the Agile 2800 for 312 bucks I think. And it's both beautiful looking and sounding.

only a vet can do that without getting yelled at.

try a epi vintage g-400, 100$ cheaper than the regular g-400, hotter pick-ups and cooler looking

Epiphones are hit and miss
The only way to know is to play them, if it stays and tune and plays okay, then hold onto it. If not, put it down and pick up another one.

The pickups are not going to be great, but thats all you can do. Low end guitars have low end parts. However, they are not going to sound terrible, you will be able to get a decent sound out of them. Head down to your local shop (bring your amp along if you own one!) and play every single guitar in your price range. However, if you really like Iommis, or Page's tone then you'll probably like the SG or a Les Paul

Agile seem the best bet but if you can save more, fender fat strat or strat will do perfectly, or an ibanez or jackson, try some out, most if not all guitar shops let you take a guitar of the wall and have a little play

i personally love SG's and LP's, i have a low-end epiphone as my starter guitar the epiphone LP-100, and i swapped out hte pickups, and i really, honestly think it's just as good as a guitar that's 600 bucks, I haven't played it in a while though, i guess it's time to break it outta the case, lol, i have a Schecter C-1 Elite, and it does thoes as well, but personally my favorite body style is an SG, i wouldn't go with Agile, i'm not saying they're bad at all i've never played one, but that's jsut it, unless you live near them, there's no way to try them out unless you stumble upon a used one

no this would be my second electric which I have a squire strat, and I have a Fender Frontman 25R amp.
