Hey everyone. Okay... I'm looking for a guitar that can do Metalcore, Deathcore, Grind, and Heavy Rock. I want it to be able to do stuff like Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God, All That Remains, As Blood Runs Black, All Shall Perish, August Burns Red, Bloodjinn, Darkest Hour, Demon Hunter, It Dies Today, Bring me the Horison... It would be nice to have some sort of whammy bar, but something that can change tunings alot(because i change tunings alot) but a whammy bar is not necisary. I want something in the $800-1000
Any sugestions for guitars?

Thanks to everyone who replies!

Of those bands, I saw not one that qualifies Grindcore.

LTDs are good, they've got some very nice models in that price range.

What amp do you have by the way?


I have a Bugera 6260-212 and it sounds great for what I play, just not on my guitar, so i dont need a new amp.

You simply can't go wrong with an Ibanez RG model. Very good build quality for the money, comfortable to play and super thin and fast necks. Perfect for what you're after.

Horrible trem on the non prestige models, and the INF pick ups are not that great. +1 on the LTD/ESP. Mh 1000 is good, you can try the model with the trem and emg's or the string thru model with SD's. Cant go wrong with either of those. The ec 1000's and the eclipses are phenomenal, I recently tried them out, looking to get one myself.

I thought the S series Zr trem was supposed to be really good?

It is, this guy just doesn't know what he's talking about. There are hardtail Ibanez guitars in that price range too, so you wouldn't have to get a trem if you didn't want one.
