Hi everybody.

I've been trying to figure out which guitar to get once i get the money to buy one.
I''ve been looking at these.
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Sch...itar?sku=518451 (The white one by the way)
Cort EVL-K6:http: //www.cort.co.kr/english/products/common/view.asp?product_id=165
PRS SE Custom:http: //www.musiciansfriend.com/product/PRS-Guitars-SE-Custom-Electric-Guitar?sku=519370
Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epi...itar?sku=517233

I play a lot of Metal (More of the darker kind like gothic and doom.) and i have a crate 65W.

Thanks.

Genre doesn't matter (much).

Try them! laugh.gif

Keep in mind that you need to steer away from a floating bridge if you want to play drop D, other alternate tunings, etc.
Then choose a guitar with a fixed bridge, set up for heavy gauge strings.

Otherwise: let you guide you. smile.gif

Yup, try them all if possible, and if you have the chance, try any other guitar that you can lay your hands on, like this you will find out which one you like the most.

Why steer away?
It just has to be setup differently.

Isn't it very time consuming to go for different tunings with a floating bridge? You need to unlock the neck locks before you can tune it. Or can you use the fine-tuners for that?

PRS gets my vote, but try them all of course. Try not to think about the strings too much, usually they are all rusty in the store etc..

If you are interested in heavy gauge strings and different alternate tunings, you really don't need a FR guitar. smile.gif

Unless, of course, you have a Tremol-No installed ... tongue.gif

Besides, Gothic and Doom are usually played on fixed bridge, heavy gauge guitars.
