So I decided to buy a new guitar soon. I kinda decided what i need. A guitar which is suited for good distortion cos i play metal and some nice cleans too. I decided a hardtail guitar with seymour duncans. Which guitar can you suggest me which not less than 600 dollars also not more than 1000.
I dont want to go actives since im playing at home and i cant use loud tube amps in my apartment. I already have a gt8 but if you can suggest me something which has good dist and cleans and not so complicated as gt8 but not as narrow as a roland cube please tell but mainly i need advice on guitar.

A guitar does not have good distortion - an amp or pedal does.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

oops i made a mistake there edited.

@bass_monkey. i know actives dont change the volume but i guess you couldnt understand what i wrote. I meant i dont want actives cos they are suited for tube amp and bad for ss amp and tube amps are loud so i cant buy a tube amp to use with my active pickup guitar.

Hope the other comments will be more useful...

yes but to get the full sound out of actives a higher volume is usally required

Why ask other people which guitar? Everyone is different and likes different shaped necks, body styles, tones, pickups etc. Play a whole bunch of guitars and find out what YOU like and what specs you're after. Keep an open mind and you'll be fine.

I personally didn't like the idol series at all. In fact I think they're hideous, but everyone's entitled to they're opinions. But I will say that just because they have SD's or EMG's doesn't make them awesome.
