I am shopping for a new guitar. I am willing to go past 1,000 dollars. I want a Metal guitar that I can play and solo on skillfully. I mostly play metal and I love tapping so I need a guitar that is pretty much the ultimate metal guitar. I really do not want a bunch of people to post here saying get the Razorback. The Razorback is highly over-rated. So just give me some tips on what guitar I should get! All tips and guitars suggested will be highly appreciated and such! Thanks!

les pauls, strats believe it or not, jackson v's n such, some esp although much is over rated, dean mls (and the razorback just dont get the dime razor back

" want a Metal guitar that I can play and solo on skillfully." i can get a 10000 dollar guitar, its not gonna make me "solo skillfully"

I would actually suggest a higher end Ibanez, either the S series or the more expensive RGs. They have nice locking nuts, and good trems, plus good pick-ups. Or, you could go for a Jackson, pretty much any Dinky over $800 is at least decent.

By soloing skillfully I meant a guitar with a good neck. I have a Les Paul and it's hard to solo on because of the neck. I want a neck-thru body pretty much.

Jackson DKMGT
Ibanez RG1570
Schecter C-7 Hellraiser (7 string)

There.

PS: I've never actually heard anyone recommend a Razorback

I'd suggest Schecters, the price range on them is very, very nice, they're practically made for metal, emgs and everything. Check out the hellraiser, that thing is just a beautifil guitar.

Most schecters (maybe all, not sure) are neck through.

Edit- Ok not all but the decnt ones are.

high price Ibanez would be a great choice...but i would try ESP's myself...great guitars....strats arent metal guitars so i wouldnt go with them....but if soloing is your thing...try the two above....

Thanks for the suggestions. I think been thinking about a Schecter more and more. I just wish they had better finish selections.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.
