So I'm just starting out. Right now I have an Ibanez- it's really cheap, really simple. Got it from a friend years ago before I started playing legitimately. Now I'm wanting to take my playing to the next level, but I'm not sure where to go.
I know different guitars have different sounds, and can be used in different/multiple genres, not accounting for the material and pickups used.
I'm looking for something that can play drop B/drop C very well without getting any ringing because of the action. I'm playing mostly metalcore/hardcore, melodic/symphonic metal, grindcore, with a bit of crabcore. Think A Day to Remember, Funeral for a Friend, Bullet for My Valentine, Born of Osiris, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Killswitch Engage, Abandon All Ships, etc. I think you get the idea.
What companies or models should I be looking at? I also don't just want models listed here. I want to know what makes some better than others, and the like. Not gonna lie, I'm a complete nub when it comes to knowing guitars and what makes one model better than the other. So I would love any chance to learn. Thanks guys.
Ibanez has always been my go to. My favourite has always been my rg321mh. Not expensive at all but just plays great. After a pick up change, it's a really solid guitar man
