ok, so i am going to get a new guitar. I am really into metal and really into grunge (hard as that is to believe) and i have a grunge band. So i am wondering, should i buy an ESP LTD M-200FM or a Squier Jagmaster (using the remainder to mod one of my old guitars)?

Get the Jagmaster because it won't suck for other genres of music. Trust me, you may not be playing just grunge and metal a while from now and it saves you money to buy a guitar that will play more than what your just playing at the moment.

I say ESP because it can get an ok range of tones but is mostly suited for heavy music....

Thanks.

Anyways based on a quick look, I would say that the ESP would handle metal and grunge style a bit better but would offer less flexibility than the Jag. If you're sure you're going to be a metal/grunge head for a long time, go ESP. If you want some more versatility in tone, go Jag.

go with an epiphone les paul, it will do both

1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

Oh, so he does.

In that case...Save your money. You currently have a entry level guitar. You are going to buy something that is really not that much better than what you have. Save up and get some much nicer down the road.

Vox is great for jazz and country but for metal you need AT LEAST a tube screamer i'd recommend getting a Marshall amp screw the new guitar.

Ignorant, much?

I'd suggest a Tokai les paul or a PRS SE of some kind. That'd handle most stuff amazingly. A Tokai SG could be nice, too- they're lovely guitars.

Please, stop using the word 'portion'- he's looking for a gear upgrade, not a happy meal.

The amp is a bigger portion of your tone the guitar, a MUCH bigger portion of it.

Just because its fender doesn't mean that its good. But do you like the tone you are getting at the moment?

If not then I'd suggest that you get a new amp first, The frontman isn't built for gain.


And If you do like your tone then get an Used M-400, they are about the same price
