Ok, so heres a question. I wanna know (in the public's opinion..) what the best sounding electric guitar for playing heavy metal, death metal, ect. with is, and at a reasonable price range too. Ive been using a Squier for awhile.. like 6 years, and i think its time to upgrade. Oh and, best pickups and strings and whatnot too? (All at a reasonable price range.. haha)
Get a 7-String if you want really brutal stuff.
EMG 81, or the Dimarzio X2N for the bridge, then the EMG 85 or like...Dimarzio Breed for the neck.

Amp makes a huge difference, too.

If you want a good sound, you'll have to spend a fair bit.

ok, ive done a bit of research, and came to some conclusions.. How would an ESP V-200 w/ EMG 81/85 pickups and Zakk Wylde Custom Boomers sound?
Take a look at an ESP LTD EC-500 or the EC-1000, EMG 81/60 pickups.

The 500 Runs around $500 - $750 bucks, depending on what you buy. It's a good deal considering what it is.

The EC 200 isn't all that good, it was agathis (which isn't a great tonewood at all). Now it's basswood which is better but I haven't heard much buzz about it.

THe 500 is sweet though, it's all mohagany and ebony.
bc richs are really aforable and have real good featreus (neck thru EMGs OFr

This. ESP/LTD deliver the best features for the money IMO.
