Damnit someone beat me to a corny search button joke!!! all of those are good so who cares?? they all have their own strengths and weaknesses and aren't really that comparable, so I just voted for what I own (Firebird:P)
Current Rig:
Gibson Firebird Studio
Limited Edition Schecter 35th Anniversary C-1
Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 FR
Ashdown Fallen Angel
Custom 7 Firebird from Ignition Custom Guitars (check them out)
ESP Phoenix
it really depends on price range, the best metal guitars overall though (with no price limit) i would say ibanez
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).
Ibanez. even though Esp is close behind since jeff hanneman and mettalica use 'em.
I vote Ibanez
Ibanez S520EX EMG 81/85
Ibanez RG350MP
Fender acoustic (Black)

Peavey Vypyr 15
Peavey 6505 212 combo
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
