Its thrash metal

if you play mostly lead, the ESP is teh way to go as it has a faster neck and lead oriented pups


if you play mostly rhythm, i suggest the LP

not to break the combo above me, but Christ almighty, wasn't Slash a lead guitarist? Sorry, but he had GNR capitalized so I assume he likes them...in which case the Paul is the obvious choice.

LP's for only rhythm...indeed.

First of all: where did I say Les Pauls can only do rhythm?


Second: There are plenty of lead guitarists who play LPs and plenty of rhythm guitarists (im pretty sure) who use that particular ESP.

So what? What does that prove?

Third: The ESP has a thinner neck, making it easier to play, thus adding speed to soemone's playing, which is very useful to lead guitarists as opposed to rhythm guitarists.

Yeah I see your point. sorry if I came of as an ass, but I need to make a few exaggerations to get my point across. I guess it all boils down to what he likes, but since he likes Slash I thought I would point that out.

Sawry ol chap

if you play a quality guitar through a not so high quality amp, it cancels out your gutiars awsomeness.

They both suck (No offense) But if you got to chose between those two, then get ESP. It's more versatile (EMG's, Floyd Rose etc...) and it's much easier to play on it.
