What guitar brand should I get?

I have been playing guitar for a year and half now and I wanted to get a nicer guitar than I have already. The one that I am currently using is a B. C Rich I don't care for it all. It's old and has a couple of dents and marks on it. Since I am fairly new to guitar playing I wasn't really sure what brand of guitar I should get. I play metal mostly and I want a guitar more suitable for it. When I picked out my first guitar I had no idea what I was doing so I picked a guitar based on looks. But now I can play and see which ones are suitable for my playing style. Any brand suggestions?

  • Metal = Ibanez

    OR the same model that one of your favorite guitarists uses (Kirk Hammet ESP guitars, Dimebag Dean guitars, etc)

    I have a $150 Ibanez RG120 and it sounds pretty great for thrash and heavy metal.

    • Thanks it looks like I am going to try and to find an Ibanez because that's what all the opinions are recommending.

    • my personal favorite are ESP/LTD with Ibanez in a close second. I was really impressed with the stock pickups that came in my viper. they have great output and crunch

  • Schecter is awesome for metal. Especially their 8-strings models. But you shouldn't underestimate acoustic guitars. That is, it's much easier to compose the harmony with an acoustic one in your hands. When you map out melody then take electric and make riffs and solos. So, I'd advise you consider Schecter as an option and pick also something from this list
    It'd be useful.

  • I really like Schecter a lot. If your into classic guitars for a reasonable price you can check out Revelations guitars. Brands like Ibanez, Jackson and Esp are also fine. And you obviously have the classic giants like Gibson, Fender and PRS which are usually pretty pricy but great guitars.
