    Your 'Unmetal' Guitars used for Metal.

    Show os those guitars that don't seem to be suitable for metal, but you use them for metal anyway.

    I've seen some guy pull the sickest shred on a Gretsch 6210.
    Zakk Wylde in one interview started shredding on a Gretsch White Falcon acoustically while he talked...

    The Tele in my avatar sounds and feels great for metal. Different, but great.

    I use my Gretsch Pro Jet for metal. The low output pickups give the sound more clean headroom and more clarity. Switching to the neck pickup gives a nice smooth lead tone. The body is very chunky and it's generally a well balanced sound acoustically, with plenty of low end. The Mahogany gives nice sustain and the Rosewood helps keep the low end. The neck is fat and chunky for riffs but it's amazingly fast speed and low action makes it amazing for leads.
    In the studios I'll probably end up having a blend of my rig with my Ibanez RG and the Gretsch Pro Jet. The Gretsch will make it on all of the solos though.

    Long post - I know my gear really well. Is that bad?

    I can explain how the guitar helps compliment my pedals of choice and how the suit the amp so well. Okay I should shut the fuck up.

    Mid- to low-output pickups = awesome. It's not like today's amps have a shortage of gain.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
