Ok so im looking for a new guitar and i just have a squier strat so i need one bad. I've tried the Gibson Sg's and they felt weird and sounded like crap I tried ESp's and i just didn't like them. I'm gonna try a C-1 Hellraiser FR and see how that is. Is there a better guitar for that price. I play thrash metal (pantera, metallica megadeth), classic rock, hard rock a little blues and shred if im in the mood. I have a ad30vt which i think sounds pretty good and my price max is 1000 canadian. I could bump it up to 1300.
the c-1 hellraiser fr is pretty nice-ull like it
