Look at Jackson's, Esps's, and B.C. Rich's, those are pretty good, but if you're a Dime-Hard fan of Dimebag(No, I am not one personally), you can't go wrong with the Dean Razorbacks

I should get off crack......

Epi les paul standard does me well for both of those genres HOWEVER its not for everyone as it weighs a tonne and has a fat neck. So ive your of the small hand variety, try an ibanez or esp. personally i'd go for an S470 but thats just me. www.gak.co.uk, have a browse.
Gear:
Gibson Les Paul Custom
Epiphone EDS-1275
Epiphone Les Paul
Schecter C-1+
Peavey Delta Blues

hey thanks i already have an ibanez s470 quiltied maple top and i love it but i alway keep it in standard tuning id love it if i could just tune it to drop D and then back to standard when i wanted but thats why i wanted another guitar one to keep in dropp D for metal and the other in standard.
i cant justify sending that much on the a maple top s470 just for a knock around metal axe.
thanks guys.

^ not quite, but it's getting there.

If I were you I'd look into some Ibanez RGs, like second hand RG550/570/750/770s

what do you mean by metal and hard rock? what's your amp? what's your current guitar?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
