HI! Please re-direct me if not in the right forum. Sorry,am a newbie trying to get back into the guitar scene after many years off and looking for hands on help. Long story short,I use to own a 1997 Jackson sl2 that I played thrash/speed metal/soloing within garage bands and small gigs.Since then I have always just bought a bolt on neck guitar and installed some good emg's or Seymour duncans and it still wasn't the same.(maybe the shotty amp or shotty bolt on guitar?) I am just looking for suggestions on what Jackson, esp,etc...etc.. guitars that would be similar to that one? I do not know my woods when dealing with the best sounding guitars for thrash/speed metal and some soloing.I do like the neck thru sound and feel.What are the best sounding woods for fast riffs with some solo? I know ampflication does come into affect,and I am window shopping for a peavey 5150 or 6505 but have to figure out the cost of a good guitar with upgraded wiring first.looking at a spending cost of 500.00 or less for used. 1000.00 if new
Any suggestions would be greatful. Please I would not like to cause a forum argument or like/dis-like.
Just looking for what experienced guys are playing these days?
