....... I need a new guitar because my retarded band members won't accept my G-400.
So.........
We play Guns N Roses, Metallica, DragonForce, heavy and nu metal, and any modern rock.
Very little classic.
HELP!
Maximum of $420.00.

Wow, your band seems like a bunch of losers already. Go tell them to screw off and let you play guitar. The guitarist is whats most important...
Be cool.

I'm getting a new one anyway, so I may as well adapt to them

Well, in that case, are there any body styles you prefer? Any preferences in features? Whammy, no whammy?
Be cool.

upgrade pickups in your SG to better buckers??
if that's not good enough, then an LP seems like it would be up your alley. If not, maybe a Schecter C-1?

I don't play that kind of music, so I'm not the best guy to ask, but I believe those would be good options.

i say go for a schecter or an ESP thats wat i got and i love mine its an H-series

A guitar made of wood?
That's such a ****ing brilliant idea!

Tell the ****ers to lick you balls.

If that doesn't work get a C1
#12
Psh, **** them. That's pretty douche-y, unless it's some lame ass color or looks/sounds like crap (due to wear or something).

Thumbing through last December's Musician's Friend (for image purposes, I know what I'm going to recommend you, it's not a blind tip):

Epiphone Goth 1958 Explorer Hardtail - $400 (looks pretty bitchin' to me...)
Epi. Dot Studio Semi-Hollow - $200 (that's for the basic one, the red/brown sunburst you add $50, the black +$100, I have no clue why.)
<- That's only if you're into hollowbodies like I am. In that case I'd recommend instead and Ibanez Artcore. Since what you play doesn't exactly use a lot of Mid range frequency (or not, it doesn't matter), it won't give a much feedback.

And you could always go with a Jackson! The King V's are $309, as is the Rhoads signature.

Most of Ibanez' solid-bodies are pretty metal oriented, judging by descriptions and first-hand accounts.

Deans ditto, ESP Ltd.'s ditto.

The Dean MLs are only like $170, and they've got Dave Mustaine's new signature V for $300. ESPs are generally cheap. The EX-400 is a visual favorite for me. Or just get a Viper 400 to piss them off.

Schecters are also pretty "typecast" metal guitars. I don't know much about these, but a friend of mine has one (I forget which, but it's a C-1, I'm pretty sure) and he loves it.

Hope that helps...

Im gonna hate myself for this but Im gonna recommend a shecter. Since your budet is tight, you'll be happy with theii pickups, hardware. My other recommendation is ibanez rg. Best feel ever, but the action is too low (which negatively affects rhythm tone), and the tremolo also affects the palm muted tone. It wont sound as heavy. For that reason i say shecter, or even better a washburn.

Guitar should not matter and they cover Dragonforce??...

Whatever you do dont play dragonforce like they do live. They suck live.

Another option that came to my mind and which is very good value wise is the new Laguna guitars. I tried one and it was really nice, the only thing is that its made in indonesia. By the way its a swamp ash body which is awesome.

What amp are you using?

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

I do believe he said "price range $420.00"

Not "I gawt like $1300 thru $3000 to spend"

Even the LTD's aren't that cheap.
#23
Your band is terrible. Reasons for not accepting the G-400 are what? I think they're decent guitars. Seriously, I'd love to see their reasoning. If one of the reasons is "it's not Gibson" I shall lawl.

As for guitars...I agree with mr steven seagull...get a new band; what equipment do they have?

Apparently you don't know how it is to be in a band.

Meaning you must not have experience the fun in playing guitar to its fullest extent.
#27
Wow, thanks for all the help! I admit I've been looking at some Les Pauls (Which apparently are acceptable to my band "because that dude with the long black hair had one."
Gulp.
I'm thinking of ditching them.....
But the S320, while over my budget, is still a possibility....
Thanks guys!

The one thing worse than not being in a band is being in a band full of tossers.

If appearance and image is more important than the music, something is very wrong.

if thats your attitude at the beginning stages of your band... after some time you may not have a say at all.

Stand your ground.
