Hey guys, Im sick of my cruddy Squier, and want your opinion on a fairly good, but cheap, guitar for hard rock and metal. So far im looking mainly at some cheap Jackson or LTDs. Im looking at body shape like the ones Kirk Hammet uses, whatever the name of that is. Im planning on playing more lead guitar stuff, so if it has a tremelo bar, all the better, but it isnt really necessary. So, what are your opinions?
Ibanez SZ320 or 520....depending on the looks you prefer. Buy used, upgrade pups, and for abour $300-$400, if you shop right, you will have a KILLER guitar.
i bought a jackson js20 dinky a while back, its a pretty good guitar as long as you dont want to use the whammy bar, my tuning is anally ****ed every time i touch it. Other than that its pretty good, easy to play and can sound nice. Was also my first guitar after a crappy squier lol as well.
