hi im goin to get alot of money soon and i wonder what guitar i should buy... i've played one and a half year now... i can play songs like master of puppets and battery... yes, im a huge metallica fan... the thing is i've always been thinking of buy a les paul standard... but i dont know now... i feel that the les paul is a bit more rock guitar then a metal guitar... i got a esp m-50 now and i LOVE it... maybe i sould buy a new esp guitar? i dunno... any1 know (or have) a guitar beetween 3345-4500 american dollars? one to play metal and fast awesome solos on?
With that amount of money, try everything and don't just settle on one straight off the bat. Play a few axes first then choose.
I'd say get a JEM if you're going to spend that kind of coin, but I should really just recommend you go to the music store and play the guitars until you find one you like, regardless of price.
are you really telling us that your budget is between three thousand three hundred and forty five dollars and four thousand five hundred dollars or is that the most critical typo I've ever seen?
Or get a $2000 guitar and a $1000 amp....
Try a Kirk Hammet sig guitar from ESP.
Get an Alembic - then stop playing metal.
I dont think you should be buying a guitar for that much if you only been playing for a year and a half.
