I have an Ibanez RG2EX2 and I've heard it plays metal better than anything else. I like to play some metal but other softer/smoother sounds like Santana, Sublime etc. Just wondering what kind of guitar I should get that is decently priced (100-500$) that is versatile. I had an LP Epiphone S2 before but I hated it after I played the Ibanez.
the esp LTD series with emg pickups have that definite metal sound. but you also get a very nice sound out of the neck pickups
