I have a Gibson Les Paul Studio Silverburst, that I think I am going to trade in for a more modern sounding guitar. I have been playing tons of 80's metal lately, Metallica, megadeath, Pantera, Maiden, etc. I will throw a couple hundred in if needed. I have always liked the Jackson guitars from reading reviews and appearance. If I am headed to the store today, what do you recommend I try out?
Thank you in advance
If it's just the sound of the guitar as opposed to the feel/features of it you may want to try some different pickups first, unless you just want a change in which case I'd recommend tracking down a used Ibby RG550.
