i am looking for a new guitar. my budget is somewhere around $1,000. i want a guitar that can basically do anything. i want to be able to play leads but rythms also. i want to able to play metal but also play cleans at church. ive been playing for a year and my fender standard tele just isnt cutting it. i play through a Vox AD100VT. any help would be greatly appreciated.
save the tele for church and get something with balls if you want to play metal.

schecter, ibanez, esp, jackson are some good brands for metal, but washburn makes some nice ones that are a little more versatile than the metal brands.
Ibanez RG2EX1 or my personal favorite A Gibson Explorer , I don't know if any of those plays clean though.
get a jackson
