Im lookin for a guitar for a lot of metal and im only going to spend about $600(american) on it. I like the les paul style guitars and i was thinking about gettin the LTD EC-500 but i read its like $800 or so. Any suggestions would be great.
Washburn X50 Pro. they are about 530 USD, i got one, and it does just great for metal.
it will be kickass out of the box, no need for pups.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!
For $650 youc ould get a sexy Schecter C-1 Hellraiser... Damn...

It's one damn nice guitar.
Does the Les Paul shape appeal to you, or are you just mostly looking for humbuckers?

Schecter=Good Stuff. Not LP shaped but sounds good and plays well.
