Already have a Fender American Stratocaster, have a cheap Ibanez and now, my eyes are on Gibson's Les Pauls... smile.gif
The question is, which one would suit me best? I Usually play lots of metal related things, more for melodic and power metal...

Any suggestions?

Not a Les Paul smile.gif

But that's me tongue.gif

I'd get a Caparison for that sort of money for power metal. But I did that anyway biggrin.gif

I know Marcus plays Gibson Les Paul's for metal music but I prefer other guitars for metal personally. I guess it's best just to try loads out and see which you think sounds the best for the metal you like.

Just try more guitar you can! I think les Paul are great but you can find other brands who'll fit you better...try some MusicMan and some ESP too. You Are the metal...not the guitar! biggrin.gif

Musicman they don't have, I really wanted to try some ESPs but don't know where sad.gif..So since they have gibson now, I wanna try them, so I really wanted atleast 3 gibsons to compare =)

The Caparison Dellinger II (I think the II) is a great metal guitar (but very pricey)
ESP and Schecter also have good reputations for being metal-friendly

It's all a matter of personal preference. Try them out biggrin.gif

What's your price range? Schecter also makes good metal-guitars, and you get your moneys worth. But Les Pauls are great for metal with their Mahogany-bodys, so in my opinion they suit for that kind of playing very well (aswell as every other style too).

LP is a great guitar, you really won't make a mistake buying one. As you already have Strat and Ibanez, next step is probably LP. But go into store and try out several LP models, I'm sure you will find one of them good. It is a heavy guitar for some serious heavy tone smile.gif

For now, I don't have a problem with prices, but later after I've seen all my options I'll make the counts

The best off the three worlds would probably be PRS. smile.gif

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

Get a LP,either classic or standard.I have a classic that is used as the main workhorse these days as it works so well with a screaming tube amp.clean or mean,their tones are superb and suitable for any style of music you care to throw at it

The standards are another great model.I played one a couple of years ago in a local music shop and I was very impressed with its build and tone.Playability is as always outstanding,and the short scale length makes it even easier on the fingers


One thing you may have to watch out for is the pick up selector switch being on the top of the body.It can be easy to knock into the middle posistion when your tapping shapes up and down the neck

mmm if you play metal you can also try JACKSON, I prefer ESP, (I'm not too happy with Ibanez lately...).
Caparison would be a good one.

Well, I think most of you are missing the objective...I like ESP, Jackson and everything, but here in my city, I have a very tiny shop, that only has gibsons, some fenders and some other less known mark, since I already have a fender, I wanted to try some gibsons, I would love to try jacksons, esps and even those caparisons, but right now, I don't know how laugh.gif
