Which Guitar?

I've been looking at a few guitars to buy. Right now I am rocking an Epiphone Demon V "E" Series. I play metal. And I never got into the logistics behind guitars until recently, I always just picked em up and played. So I am unknowledgable of Pick ups and such. An example of my being a noob. My friend just told me that I should use thicker gauged strings for metal. And I was using a light strings all this time.

But any way the guitars I am looking at are:

BC Rich VG1 Virgin
2 B.D.S.M. B.C. Rich humbuckers

[/FONT]BC RIch Warlock
Pickups: 2 B.D.S.M. B.C. Rich humbuckers

ESP LTD EC Redburn

- EMG 81 pick ups and a 60 in the frets.

Jackson soloist

[/FONT]3 Duncan Designed rail hum-buckers.

Kramer Focus 3000 strat

pick ups unknown. Stock.?

thanks for any help you can provide.

Re: Which Guitar?


Can you play them at a store near you? That's the best way for sure.

As for string gauges, plenty of metal players use light string gauges as they are easier to bend. Every element of your guitar alters the tone from your fingers, how you pick the string to your guitars, your signal chain (effects) and finally the amp. Some people even think the power cord you use can have an effect Good guitar tone is key, but make up your own rules and sound unique!

Be yourself, listen to the guitars and choose which feels best.
