Hello Gmc
Ok i think im ready to just buy a new electric guitar but would like to here some opinions.The biggest thing i play on guitar is lead or solo style.My my music style consists of mostly thrash metal and heavy stuff.Example i use distortion 90% of the time.I already know Ibanez makes killer guitars so besides Ibanez what do you recommend?


--------------------
My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

A bit of an odd suggestion maybe, but how about a Charvel San Dimas? Enormous cool-factor (in my eyes at least) Dealers have the white models on sale I belive. That's 80's hard rock for real!!! laugh.gif

You can now check out the guide as a starting point for finding good Metal gear to try out.

ESP is my personal favorite for Metal though.
