hey, lookin for advise on a new guitar. I play mainly metal and classic rock and my price range is 700 - 1000($canadian$) Preferences are les pauls (or knockoffs considering the price range) or something with a good whammy system. anyways just name off some guitars that fit this discription
get a zak wyllde custom les paul. you could get one on ebay for like $700-800 U.S.
basically a strat should do you good. i know strats arent traditionally "metal" guitars but with the right amp/effects they can be.
