im looking for a new guitar thats heavy...ive narrowed it down to a schecter or ibanez..but im not sure which model. I have 450 dollars to spend. I play metal metalcore and hardcore...suggestions? im going to guitar center to get it if that helps any lol i prefer no floyd..

keep saving bro. Once you get over that 600 mark you start getting into some really nice axes. For 450 though, check out some cheaper RG series from Ibanez, maybe a Schecter tempest, those are really nice to. For metalcore/hardcore, if you are one of those "guitar gods" that mutes powerchords and nothing else, get a cheap jackson and beat it up, but if you are actually a serious player i would keep saving.

Fender Stratocaster. They are ten times better/more versitale than Shecter or ibanez.

lol "terrible metalcore tone"
and if you want a heavy guitar get like a firebird, you'll die from the weight :P
but seriously unless you're going to contribute some money yourself (a good idea actually) i think schecters better for the value. hmm.
i have a 'white guitar'

not for his genre of music...

schecter has my vote...decent quality, reasonable price, no floyd.

My first guitar deal I got, I got a Vinci Electric, Amp, lots of picks, a book, a dvd, and a auto tuner, all just for $22.00!

Maybe you could get the same, if you look hard enough online.
