You can make anything a metal guitar, You just have to know how. I play alot of metal with mine but it has EMGs, but the feel of the guitar is awesome.

G-400's are great guitars.

EMG 81/85 with a Peavey 5150 combo and your set, forget pedals.

+1, just throw some active pups in there are and a 5150 and your set for any kind of melodic death/trash from there on. Same thing Arch Enemy and In Flames use, you're good to go, just don't copy their tone completely.

I use my G-400 for grindcore. I'm sure if I can do grind, you can do melodeath.

Boss makes great pedals. And if you have the money I would go with Marshal for an amp.

You can actually buy a G-400 with EMGs already in it. And it's on sale with Musician's Friend, $100 down from what it used to be.

If you like them in alpine white (which is the best color, IMO) it'd suit you perfectly.



Or do what I did
