Im looking to buy a guitar tonight, i want something to play heavy music on. The top brands in mind are dean, schecter, epi, esp/ltd. Right now i will probably go with the dean z and buy some different pickups for it. My other choice would be a blem epi standard les paul. Im looking on musicians friend, any help is appreciated.
ESP/LTD would be a good choice, also...many people in heavy music use these guitars, with pretty good results.
and have you considered the ibanez RG321mh, my good sir?
i(my dad) went into guitar center and got them to take 50 bucks off a schecter gryphon so it wound up being $350... amazing guitar, mahagony body, flame maple top, coil taps, and it feels, dare i say- comfy in my hands?
is there a whammy in dean z?......can I put a whammy?
gryphon sound like a pretty good value for money guitar. Mahogany body ftw!
