Hi rockers,

I'm thinking of buying a new guitar.
But the question is.. which one? ohmy.gif
I like to play Metallica, Linkin park, solo stuff and other rock/metal stuff.
But sometimes I want to play a nice clean piece of music.
My amp is Vox VT30

My buget is between 500 - 1000 euro

If anyone has a good suggestion.. pls post

Thx mates

Rock on! cool.gif

there are thousands of guitars for what you are looking for... My favorite guitar I've played is probably the gibson lp studio or epiphone lp prophecy. Theres also the epiphone lp ultra II. Why all les pauls? Well, in that price range is when they start getting better in quality, with figured tops and set necks and such. Something to consider is whether you what kind of bridge you want (hardtail, floyd rose, vintage tremolo, etc...) Then people (who have a lot more experience than me with buying guitars) can tell you what to get!

I spelled my username wrong...I didn't even think that was possible!

Look at the topic for my guitar...
Finished Guitar Build

Gear:
Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)

Where are you from mate? This will help me determine the online shop to look at and the pricing. Prices vary a lot from country to country.
