So I think it's time for a second guitar. I have a Roland 15x Cube.

Now heres the thing.. im not dedicated to one style. I play lots of led zep, nirvana, white stripes, metallica. I play a bunch of things. From rock, blues, alternative. Everything except metal.. aside form metallica, who I love and play a lot.

So heres what I want in a guitar..

- A blue guitar!
- Under 500

So I was thinking of the HSS strat. Though I hear it's not good for metallica?


Basically, I just want a good all around guitar that can play different styles.. that sblue =]

If you can go a little over 500, go for a Epi Les Paul. I own one and I can play any genre of music; it has a good rich tone and sounds great with effects.

My two cents...

I would say either an agile les paul (I think they have blue ones) or a regular les paul. And if you need harder tones, you can just replace the pickups, cause agiles are baisclly the best for the money.

And another

They'd both be great, but the second is the higher quality. But yeah, they'd both be great. and very under budget.

Hmmmm thanks I usually HATE the les paul looks... but these two look pretty nice =]

But are they as good as the strat im talking about?

I just bought an Epiphone LP today. Its a Studio model. They look great in black and cost around 400 US - 550 US. Its perfect for any style.

I own a HSS strat and can vouge that it's a great guitar for the cash. With a good pedal and amp, you can get metallica easy. It's also great for blues and everything else. It's extremely versatile. A pup change would make it even better, but the stock pups are in no way bad.

Gah such hard choice -.-.... but I dont plan on buying a distortion pedal anytime soon, my amp gets the job done fairly well.. I just want a guitar for now to get rid of my crappy starter one.

Oh and between the 2 les pauls... how big of a difference is the second guitar? I mean, is it going to be a lot more better? <_<

You don't need a pedal if you've got sufficient distortion from your amp.

I'd get a decent amp first, the Cube 15 isn't all that great for what you want. Get yourself a Valve Junior and a cheap OD pedal like a Bad Monkey - you'll love yourself forever. And you'll stiull have enough left over for a guitar...
