I am looking for a metal guitar that is good for down tuning. I am tired of downtuning my Gibson SG standard every time that I want to play death metal/deathcore/black metal/Thrash/etc. I am looking for a "metal" looking guitar that can handle being down tuned. Another important feature I am looking for is it has to be good for shreding (sweep picking/alternate picking/etc. ) I am open to new ideas as long as the guitar you guys reccommend fits the above criteria, I have about $600 dollars to blow on this.

Oh, and is this any good? The Jackson KVX10 King V

How low do you want to tune? My question is what guitar/scale/string setup one would need for drop A tuning?
#4
yes, that jackson is good however i recomend a jackson dinky dkmg however almost all jacksons will be good for it.

If you'll only use one tuning, then the Jackson's fine, otherwise, no.

id say look into some ESP LTD EC-500s or MH-500.
very high quality guitars, great for metal (EMGs), and the EC also has an EMG 60 which is a great clean/jazz/blues pickup as well.
Relitivly thin necks, great upper fret access.

or a shecter hellraiser (used?) or C-1
Fender MIA Standard Strat
ESP LTD Viper 407
Epiphone SG
Starcaster by Fender(modded with Bill Lawrence l-500-xl)
PEAVEY 6505+ (FJA transistor modd)
Peavey 65 watt transtube studio-112
Marshall 1960AV
Vader 2x12
ISP Decimator
MXR 10 band EQ
