it really depends on price range, the best metal guitars overall though (with no price limit) i would say ibanez
Gear:
Carvin Bolt-T -> Line 6 DL-4 -> Danelectro Fish and Chips -> Homemade Fuzz -> Epiphone Valve Junior Combo -> Amplitube and Guitar Rig.

Its a 3 way tie for me... Uhm, I'm just gonna go with Esp because Alexi Laiho plays one.


Possibly the only B.C rich fan on UG

For straight up metal I'd go with Jackson-from what Jacksons I've played (high end and low end) they put out quality stuff at decent prices unlike other brands...(ESP/LTD...although high end ESP's are definatly worth it).
#11
Ibanez. even though Esp is close behind since jeff hanneman and mettalica use 'em.
#13
I vote Ibanez
Gear:
Ibanez S520EX EMG 81/85
Ibanez RG350MP
Fender acoustic (Black)

Peavey Vypyr 15
Peavey 6505 212 combo

Jackson.
Then ESP.

Or... Caparison or Vigier...

I never saw how Ibanez is metal... Basswood is a horrible wood for typical metal IMO, and I doubt anyone is talking about the S series when you talk about Ibanez, just a bunch of RG fanboys/bandwagoners
