I've been playing guitar for a couple of years but I've only used the one guitar.. I'm getting a new one for the start of next year and need some help choosing and what not. I'm in a Metal band and have a price range from about $500-$750.. I was leaning towards getting an Ibanez RG370DXGP2: http://www.ibanez.com/eg/guitar.aspx?m=RG370DXGP2, but I'm really not sure. please help!

What More Is There To Say..
check out Jackson, ESP, and Cort

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
Do NOT get an Ibanez with an Edge III-tremolo as it's made of cheap and crappy metal. It will probably be broken in a year or two. Look at Jacksons, a Dinky maybe?



Good metal guitars, you surely don't need active EMG's to play metal, as some here may tell you.
"Your signature can not be longer than 250 characters."

How you know you have too many guitars...

Apparently once also known as PonyFan #834553.

what amp do you play through?

I play through a Roland Cube-30.. I may also look at getting a new amp soon too

well, if you have room in that budget for an Original Floyd rose or a Gotoh Licensed Floyd Rose, by all means get that guitar.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
