hey all, im in a hardcore band, as i lay dying, the banner, an whatnot... (ive been playing alot of as i lay dying mostly if that helps..) an anyways i was looking for something with high output, perferably active pickups, a floyd bridge, and 24 frets if possible, but not necessary, the budget is like $550 USD tops

thanks <3

RG321MH, then change the pickups.


And please, don't write this "<3" unless you're a chick. Just my 2 cents.

EDIT: what amp do you currently have?

if you have ever heard of fernandes... thye are amazing guitars for really cheap and they dont have crap bridges. they have tons of used ones at the GC by my house . also try jackson. there is a dinky for 600 or so that i played a while ago and it played pretty nice and had a set of EMGs.

Nope, Cherry Red Gibson Les Paul Standard with EMG 85's..yup, no 81's, just 85's...i think an Epiphone Les Paul Standard with a pickup change would be good, since As I Lay Dying uses Les Pauls.

Whos space?

well it may be a passing trend but im not the kinda person that likes this cuz its a trend, i liked this kinda stuff before it was trendy an i will when its not trendy anymore.. and thanks alot i think i might go with a rondo les paul an pup upgrade
#20
the ibanez sz520fm or qm (or the sz320, same guitar but without the fancy inlays and quilt or flame top) would pretty much suit your needs. maybe a pickup upgrade later on..

i own a sz520fm and it's a really nice guitar and has a great sound to it for "POST-hc" music.

awesome =D yeah an i never said as i lay dying was hardcore too.. i just said thats the kinda stuff ive been playing, and while were talking about hardcoreness i like poking fun at the whole HxC thing, like today i went to a soda machine at school knowing i didnt have enough money, had a quater or two in the ol' pocket, an anyways i pull it out an go "damn i dont have enough" an turn to my friend an say "i wonder if this thing takes scene cred" from the 'your not hardcore' videos.. lol, thanks ill look into the SZ series and also what kinda p'ups should i upgrade too, i was looking at invaders but those seem to be kinda love/hate, and i was thinkin since there kinda bright the mahogany body should kinda balance that out.. all suggestions are welcome, and thanks to all the people that have been helpfull so far... damn i said alot...

Mmm, well i'm not reallly the one to recc guitars :P. Well...if your limit is 550, I would go save up!

I was thinking of suggesting the ec-1000 or the mh. The active pick ups are killer. Personally, I have it and it screams, the 81's and 60's do what they're rumored to do...BE HXC! Hope you find your choice of guitar, keep reseaching.

As I Lay Dying is NOT hxc. i hate hxc and i know that. all these so called "hardcore" bands these days are POST- hardcore. hardcore was in the 80's. it's pretty much gone now, except for a few bands. i hate it all and this as i lay dying and norma jean stuff is just a passing trend.



As i Lay Dying is not Post-Hardcore, they are Metalcore. Get your genres right. Also, Norma Jean have dubbed themselves noisecore.
