SH*T....that sums up that guitar in one word

terrible pickups, tuners....and an agathis body. it wouldn't be much of an improvment from the guitar you have now

what kind of budget do you have to spend on a guitar right now?

Metal Master is a decorated version of the bronze warlock...
Which are s--t.

Save up for a real BCR, and you'll adore it.

I have one..it's honestly not a bad guitar. There are obviously better guitars, and I think you should find a better one, it's more like a starter guitar. But if you are set on it, it's really not as bad as everyone says.


I'm writing in the perspective that he's choosing his second guitar.
I'd be like someone who already owns a starter guitar asking if he should buy a squire affinity.

My friend has the ESP.
Plays horribly, In my opinion.

I'd advise you to save up at little more rather than just buy another beginners guitar.
Trust me, you'll be ten times as happy.

For 250, look for a used Epiphone G400. Best in that price range without a doubt imo. Make sure its a good one though, try it out first.

Way to be extremely ignorant. You obviously have never tried any of the higher-end B.C Rich's. That was probably the worst usage of /thread I've ever seen.

yeah, that was sickeningly disgusting.
I suggest you stop being such a noob and try something other than Bronze series and Revenge Series guitars at guitar center.

While you're opening your mind and figuring out Gibson, Fender, and Marshall aren't the only brands on the face of the planet (way to be extremely cliche, by the way) you can suck on Dave Mustaine pictured on the right.

Not as poor as he'd be if he wasted 250 on a guitar that plays just as bad as the one he has now and then decided he wants a better guitar.
The option is to buy a good guitar now, or buy a good guitar for $250 more later, because that's what buying 2 beginners guitars is. A waste.

I once got shocked by a spider amp.

I got powers like spiderman did, except I model everyone else's powers poorly.
