Well, I damned hate Peaveys. But, yeah, try a Jackson or Gibson Explorer. Tho, personally, I'd get a Fender Stagemaster. (Tho, you'd have to find one used cuz I don't think they make em anymore.) Or an Ibanez is always a good bet, especially if you decide to go for 7 strings. That low B string kicks ass, man.

I'd say Ibanez... I find them the most comfortable to play out of any of the main production guitars.


As for exactly what guitar... Depends on what you want for looks... If you want something pointy maybe look at a Xiphos? Superstrat... RG?

If you want to sound good spend more on the amp...

But if you're set on a guitar, I'd go LTD or Schecter.


Playing through a good amp with a cheap guitar with cheap pickups etc.. isn't going to be much better...

so what kind of ibanez or jackson should i get?
it has to be around 700 dollars

schecter and ibanez make great 700 instruments.

esp does too, check out some of those.
what kind of body are you looking for.

^ Indeed. You have to have a certain "balance" between the two if you know what I men.

there's nothing wrong with vyprs, but from what i can tell you have about a grand budget, and you can get a solid ibanez RG for about 400.
and 600 gets a much better amp.

don't get a schecter or esp if you aren't spending more than 500, they're cheaper models are pretty garbage.

Valid point.

Random rant:

Anyone else hate the fact that people insist on calling LTD guitars ESP? This is happening a lot here. You don't ever see anyone call a squier a fender or an Epi a Gibson.

i think they're called esp dude. the website is www.espguitars.com.and i see people call squiers fenders more often than you'd think.

If you go Ibanez and want a tremolo, aim for the zr series. I've heard that the edge III's (most widely employed trem bridge by ibanez) don't hold up very well. I've always been partial to RGs myself. However, you may look into a S470 or something similar. If you have the dough, look into emg pickups.

im with you man, but
OH GOD!! DO NOT START THIS ARGUEMENT, THIS THREAD WILL BE INSTAJACKED
seriously, just deal with it, it's not that hard

ok guys i cant really choose between the guitars you guys wrote
but im probablly gonna have to change tuning sometimes so what should i get from those list?
#22
If you are mentally challenged stay away from Floyd Rose bridges. However, most people make a huge deal over these and they are not really that hard to change tunings with if you take some time to learn. In fact it's really simple.

But... A fixed bridge would be the simplest to change tunings on though if you can live without a wammy bar.

If there's a guitar store near you, go try some out. You'll never know how you'll like something until it's there sitting in your hands making noise (or music). Also, if you order something from online, there's no gaurantee that the guitar will be set up decently. At least at a store there's at least half a chance somebody picked it up, tuned it, etc. Going to a couple of shops helped me immensely. Without trying some out first, I'd have never gotten what I wanted. Hope that helps some.

No, they're not. You scroll down the guitar link, and look "LTD Deluxe/etc" Not ESP, LTD. It just bugs me, because then you get people who play a $150 LTD and say "OMG ESP SUCCKZZ", and we have to explain no, ESP = pretty damn good, really cheap LTD = you get what you pay for.

I don't think I've ever seen/hear someone call a squier a fender though.

But eh. I digress.

If you want a trem and you still want to change tunings, sir, I have a solution for you.

I got the LTD Alexi-600 SE, really kickass straightly metal, but suggest to change the pickup, EMG HZ for a SD blackout or emg 81... best metal one I've tried, and proof of it, I had to buy it, I'm metal minded too.
