I want to buy a guitar. I mainly play metal and rock , but do play a little of everything.
I've looked at several bands, and at the moment are interested in a jackson.
I like the Jackson Soloist (Sl1 the most) but my price range is limited to a maximum of about $1000, though I will pay more if their is a very good deal.

Looks at some ESPs dude also some schecters

(A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music)

i think you are on the right track with Jackson, just not the american mades. look at the SL3s. they are basically the SL1s only cheaper and a little different.
how can you "play" all those genres if this is your first guitar
