a buudy of mine is getting a new guitar for his birthday, his mom ask me to find a good guitar for him around 700-1000 dollars canadian roughly (he has no knowlege that hes getting a guitar, btw)

he is also lefthanded and would like a nice metal guitar such as an ibanez or a jackson dinky, or similar shape. since the guitar is lefthanded it has to be ordered in cause their usually not on the shelf so i cant see for myself, any sugestions to a good guitar following these specs?

I feel sorry for the drummer, he gets stuck with a guitarist who can't hold a rhythm to save his life and a vocalist in the middle of a heavy-flow month.

Go to a local store, pick him up an Ibanzez or ESP or something that is great for metal, and restring it for a left hander.

re stringing a righty would be useless srry. he listens to alot of metal like maiden, ozzy & sabbath and some of the newer bands, basically alot of things.
btw the guitar he has now is a gibson sg

How, sure his mum hasn't bought anything yet has she?? He could tell her he'd be better off with a new amp, that is if he doen't have a good amp
