So I just got a gift certifikate from some family members for part of a new guitar; this was going to be a Mayones Setious, until I found out the ad was a scam!
So now, I really don't know what to get, and my band will be hitting the stages pretty soon, so I have to make a pretty quick decision here.
I've found a Gibson SG, heavily modified with an ebony fretboard and a Bareknuckle Nailbomb in the bridge; but it's an SG-X which I think is pretty crappy. Other than that, I've been pndering about some Jacksons, the RR5 or SLS3 or Schecters or something. My limit is about 1000 pounds or 1650$, and I won't be able to try the guitars before I buy them (because I live in a shitty country).
Please, anyone, could you recommend some guitars for me?
We play something along the lines of thrash/groove/progressive, but seeing as I'm the only guitarist in the band, I need to handle both lead and rhythm.
tl;dr: Need new guitar, 1000 pounds/1650$ for lead and rhythm metal, please recommend.
You need a guitar full of Arkane Magik to spend your "Gift Ceritifikate" on.
