Hey guys,

i got a RG prestige 2620 and i only play it in E standard, because de-tuning, then re-tuning up to E using a Trem, double locking is not ideal.

So i want to buy a metal guitar, with no FR trem...

i want to be playing mainly pantera stuff and other heavy stuff on it.

what are good metal guitars ? im looking into ESP's maybe.

your thoughts ?..

To my surprise there are mutiple posts in this thread, but no one mentioned the Washburn X50 pro yet.

Also, the hardtail ibanez models like the RG321, some SZ's and maybe if it's in your price range the RGA121 or PGM301 are worth a look.

Alexi Gay-ho has a great ESP/LTD metal guitar - and if you choose the after burner, than damn you'll have a great time - of course its pricey.

WHAT YOU SHOULD REALLY BE LOOKING INTO are JACKSONS

They have great metal guitars.

Calling Alexi Laiho "Gay-ho" doesn't really help the point your trying to make, I'm not a massive Alexi fan, it just sounds really immature.

ESP (or LTD and Edwards for that matter) do make some really nice guitars though, as does Jackson.

Why don't you just go guitar hunting for a day, visiting as much shops as you can and trying out everything that even so much as catches your eye?

My price range is going to be about £500, i might evan go second hand.

I like the Look of the Sg styled ESP's..

I have already owned a jackson, it was a £250'ish one, but i still liked. I dont want to get a radical shaped one like the alex laiho ones, or the Randyrhoads...i really like the RR24, but i might get one in the future..when i can play well standing up lol.

Maybe to your surprise, but the off-set V shape is quite comfortable when sitting down.

Also, the ESP LTD Viper models are getting some pretty positive reviews from the 400 series and up.

Wow, do you do stand up funny man? Anyways, to the TS. I would suggest maybe the ESP LTD H-1000 series.
Be cool.

Gibson Les Paul studio (lite) or standard no thrills explorer Also, the Dean ML's ('79 series) are awesome, could use a pickup replacement tho.
