Haha thanks. Pretty good, i could do with some new strings on it at the moment. My only complaint is when you put some distortion on the neck pick up, it sound almost muddy, its hard to describe, but apart from that its good. I also have to give most credit to my amp, i use to have a Fender amp, and the guitar sounded awful on that. All in all its a pretty solid guitar for how much it cost :P
My intent is hard rock and metal maybe dabbling into alternative and classic rock now and again. For now I'm just learning chords and working on my finger dexterity and muscle memory. But my future intent is for own a guitar geared towards heavier music.
Rondo music has a series of guitars under the name of the "Agile," series. For heavier players, they are excellent guitars for their price. They have an extensive listing of instruments to fit your style, but the downside is you HAVE to order them online and have them shipped. It's not the worst thing in the world, but you do have to wait a while to get your hands on it.
Additionally, if you don't feel comfortable getting something online, Ibanez is a stellar brand for metal players. The Wizard II neck that comes standard in most regular model Ibanez guitars is very fast and easy to control. Their scale lengths are nice no matter what you pick, and the stock pickups tend to be DiMarzios or just Ibanez pickups that emulate a DiMarzio sound.
It really depends on what your budget is when you get to that point in your playing career, but those are my preferences. If you want info on any other type of guitar you can let someone here know, and we'll help you out. I have a massive local guitar store here in town, and I can try and give you feedback on a lot of stuff.
right. Well for now my Fender works great but In anticipation of the future I have been looking into ESP, Ibenez and Gibson. I specifically was looking at ESP because my favorite guitar player uses one and I enjoy the sound. But that's for far in the future since those are outrageously priced. Hopefully I will be landing a well paying job shortly so I'm thinking about a good model in the 2 to $ 300 range for when I'm a little more well versed.
So I tried playing a few different guitars today after i did my workout at the gym. And I played 3 guitars from the company ESP which is the company that makes the guitars James Hetfiled (Metallica), Emppu Vuorinen (Nightwish) and Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom) play. I really think when I decide to get a guitar later down the road it will be an ESP, they sounded great while I played them and they were very comfortable. I even played a flying V for the first time.
Hey man im a fellow metal guitar player my advice is that the guitars in the 200-300 price range generally dont have good pickups on them and the quality is not the greatest My advice would be to move into the mid level price range and go to your local guitar shop and jam on some of thoose guitars Im personally a Gibson/Ephiphone guy and their guitars get the job done right whether im playing zepplin or slayer ive been seeing a lot of ephiphone guitars with emg pickups in my local shop and thoose guitars are killer for metal
Ok, so I don't know if anyone is actually going to see this, but I'm tired and getting mildly exhasporated. I don't know where to post this.
I have a Squier P-Bass that suddenly has an issue where it buzzes loudly through my amp. I've isolated it to the bass. It stops if I pull the plug on the cord up while it is in the jack, but will continue if I allow it to sit by itself. It also gets louder when I touch the strings or any of the metal components of the bass. Again, it stops if I pull the plug in the jack in a certain direction. I understand that this could just be a grounding issue, or the jack, but I am confused as to why it only occurs if I let it sit by itself and stops while I pull the plug a certain way.
