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.
I like the 79 better (looks) but which would play bettar which has bettar pickups? thanxz
I bought a EX400 about a year ago, because it looked awesome and i picked
it up for heaps cheap

However i didnt think it was that good of a guitar

Didnt sound good, didnt feel good and i sold it a month later

I would go for a jackson warrior if i were you, but thats just my opinion
Jackson SLSMG Soloist
Jackson DXMG
ENGL Fireball E635 100
Peavey JSX
Orange 4x12
