So I am looking into buying a new guitar. My current gear includes the limited edition Epiphone Alpine White SG with EMGS running through a Line 6 Pod XT live into a Marshall MG250DFX and another Marshall Cab that I'm not sure the size on.

I play anywhere from MetalCore to GrindCore to Thrash Metal.

I'm looking for a guitar that can thrash and solo but still provide some heavy breakdowns.

I've seen a lot of bands in my genre use an Ibanez
But i am no guitar wiz

Help me please!!!

Thank you

New amp .

Active pickups + Solid State amps (particularly the horrendous MG) + modeling = No
Recognized by the Official EG/GG&A Who To Listen To List 2008

i prefer ibanez. but telling you what guitar to buy in my opinon is like telling you what car to buy. a guitar is a thing i think you should test drive. it will tell you if its meant to be. esp are pretty nice also. i like the actual esp more than the newer ltd models but they are really pricey. alot of metal use ibanez. dont forget the good old flying V either. that is a tone monster! hope this at least leads ya to a enjoyable selection to try.

so you could get a new amp and a guitar.
Peavey VK 212 is for example 500$...
It's awesome. Or you could get the half stack for 1000...but if you really want a new guitar get the VK(if you want to go used I suggest the 5105 for metal...but it has kinda sucky cleans) and a new guitar.
