So im thinking about buying myself a brand new guitar, ive been playing for about 6 months now. And i enjoy it more now than everbefore.

My current gear is a Squier Affinity strat and a Roland Cube 30.


Anyway the prize cannot be more than about 590 bucks. What i basicly like playing is old Metallica stuff, Megadeth and so on. I made a thread like this not very long ago, and almost everyone suggested that i should try the ESP LTD ex-400. I live in Sweden and well i couldn't find it on any swedish website store:F so i'd appreciate if you could mention other guitars

I'd also appreciate if you'd leave a comment about how great/horrible my current guitar is


/Cheers

if youre going to get any EX style of guitar by LTD, be prepared. It is NOTHING like playing the squier affinity. I went through the same order of guitars, except i went to the EX-50 instead of a 400. Even the 50 sound great with stock pickups, nice distortion and good-ish harmonics. I bought it also for a metallica style of tone and it works well. but the guitar itself is VERY heavy, and the neck likes to drop if you let go of it. But the neck is smooth, the action is great, and since the pickups on the baseline were good, obviously the more expensive you go, the better they will be. it feels completely different than the affinity.
