Buying a guitar.

(1/9) > >>

Hi, I want to buy a new guitar but I don't know a lot about them so can anyone help me with this? Pricerange is about 550-800 euro for the guitar. I play mostly hardrock, my favourite bands are: Machinae Supremacy (DUH xD) ,Bullet For My Valentine, Breakin Benjamin, System Of A Down, Papa Roach, Anberlin, Three Days Grace, Billy Talent, The Killers. That kind of stuff...

A few days ago I found out that the soloist of MaSu plays with a Jackson KE2 Kelly, so I looked for some info and I found the KE3 Kelly which is a lot cheaper offcourse, but still decent. Is this true? Anyone plays with it?

Jack Lupino:
Copied from the other thread a post i earlier made, mainly because i'm a lazy bastard but reading through might give you some ideas.
Good looking and black preferred.. those two do not match.

But i'm willing to ignore that like nothing happened for this once and sum up some awesome guitars that might give you an idea or two.

The J&M (JEM) Is the vai signature guitar, you know, with the handle. AWww feck it, ill put a picture up. - Its too big for here.
(beware this one is a tad expensive.)

Well i don't really know what kind of music you play but these guitars are pretty allround.

Good luck :P

Thanks I'll definately check out those guitars when I'm in the shop :)

Anyone got some info about the KE3 Kelly?

Jack Lupino:
A friend of mine bought that one, played on it, its definately sweet, however takes some time getting used to, because of the bridge.
