Heres what I think... NO ONE GIVES A SHIT WHAT ****ING GUITAR YOU WANT.
#3
^ Hey.. He just wants advice, if you don't want to help then **** off.
Out of those choices I'd say the C-1 Hellraiser, but I havn't had any experience with the Epi Prophecy guitars. You should consider some other Jacksons thought not just the KVX10. Maybe a DKMG, RR3, KV2, all nice guitars, and better than the X10.
HI

im sorry, i'm not going to say that no one gives a shit, but honestly TS why would you want someone else pick your guitar for you?

you're not even almost narrowed down in your decision.

whatever.

Just a reminder for some of those flaming "we don't give a ****" people,

IF you don't give a **** then gtfo of the thread,its called the "back" button or the "X" Button.Seriously i just want advice for a guitar from the community,not from flaming retards who waste everyone's time.Dang,seriously....
#13
I'd say get the Hellraiser...but you did say you where a rythme guitarist, so you wouldn't realy need the FR, it would just complicate things more than they need to be. Schecter has a Hellraiser with a fixed bridge, same guitar basicly minus the FR, I would look into that.

buy it yourself. goddamn. just walk into a store and play a guitar. dont let UG people choose for you. Ug people love schecters and i think ibanezes. most people i know in real life hate both. test them yourself. please. do yourself a favor. my friend asked if a guitar was good, UG says yes. he buys it ebay. and guess what. it plays like shit. i was a schecter btw.

The fact that people are telling you to buy the James Root tele makes me want to puke. *BRB Puking*
#16
Wow... you've managed to waste a LOT of time into making this all "formal", and "businessy".

good job!

btw... most people will just not read it due to the longness of it and the requirement of an attention needed to fully sit through it.

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.
#18
Seriously dude get a Paul Reed Smith SE Custom or SE Singlecut. Especially coz you are rhythm guitarist and they are very versatile as far as sound goes. That way you can just use effects and distortion etc. to make it sound like a Tele or a Hellraiser or whatever else your into.
#19
You guys are probably right,Ill go to Guitar Center tomorrow to test all guitars listed above,hey maybe i might even close this thread since i might find.(TheBax was right) All I know is 3 things,im definably gonna have to test the schecter out too see if it "really that good",the other is that i might buy a les paul based guitar since i love les pauls.

Which Les paul would you guys buy for metal from Epiphone or Gibson Which is in the 800-1000$ zone.Ill go test it out tommorow if you tell me.


EDIT:I will also tryout the PRS Custom/Single Cut,I heard its especially good for rythym guitarist who play classic rock and metal.Thx agian guys

Well... I'm not a noob by any means, but I still say go for a Schecter C-1.

If I were you, I would buy the C-1 Classic, or the Hellraiser FR.

Although Epiphone makes damn good guitars for their prices...

I don't see how people can say that they are a "rhythm" guitarist.... Do you mean you play rhythm in a band? I can't seem to comprehend limiting your guitar playing to just rhythm.

Eventually you are going to want to play some solos, or at least some melodies....
#25
I think you should get an Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy. But then again, I'm biased as the Les Paul is my favourite guitar shape of all time.

That and I enjoy when people shred on Les Pauls.

HI
#32
Well I just found out that the Schecter C-1 FR isn't meant for Rythym but the Schecter Hellraiser C-1 is.The Main difference is that there is no FR between both .....lol.....but seriously i need to test out these guitar tommorow.Once I do that i might close the thread because you never know....i might find the guitar that suits me.If that does happen i wanna thank you guys for all the help.
#33
PLAY THEM!! I can understand choosing between let's say two or three model LPs but you are all over the place with that list.

Also, when did GnR, Van Halen, Nirvana become classic rock?
#34
Hey Meta,Ive Been told to play them like 10 times already.......thanks for the reminder though -_-.

Oh and I call it classical rock since...well...there for classics from the past.Theyre not the only bands i like though :P

EDIT:Got to go guys,hope this thread stays alive for tonight.Ill see you guys tommorows and thanks for voting.Peace
