I couldn't find any good reviews on this (perhaps I wasn't looking hard enough)

Curious which one do you think would be better for playing metal?
I watched countless videos on youtube about them but unsure.. being the noob in which I am

sorry if this is in the wrong section I didn't know where else too go!

the ART owns the GSA in every way.
the GSA is a budget guitar. i'd go hands down for the ART300.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Lava Cables Clear Connect, Soar and Mini ELC

I'm a little picky and I rather liked the ART300 I played.
