Good looking and black preferred.. those two do not match.

Ibanez ! You can NOT think of buying a guitar, and not thinking of ibanez.

It has some great guitars in every price class..

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

Rad, that first one is beautiful. Cant help but think it'd look better with white on black though, gold is such a cliche colour :P

And also, If I wanted a LP-style guitar, I'd have to get a Gibson. You cant beat the classics! I've wanted a Les Paul Gothic for ages now.

I personally think Gibson is pretty shitty compared to other guitars, but you can be a sheep and follow the crowd if you want..

It's not following the crowds, I just think if I want to buy a guitar, I shouldnt buy a remake of it, but rather the original model from the original creators. :)

Choose a guitar which have EMG mics.
Perhaps the best for metal heavy sound (yes, metal heavy sound, not heavy metal sound).

Jack Lupino:
That ESP has EMG's in it, also i think the gold looks awesome :)
