    Okay, regardless of this being kind of a silly question and probably the wrong forum I'm gonna say Caparison.

    Jackson Kelly. Very cool shape, and very comfortable to play.

    Most guitarist types I talk to say BC Riches are really nastily made, and inferior quality to other brands.

    They do look cool though, and a lot of metal bands seem to use them, but I wonder how much of the reason is because they are high quality instruments, and how much is the evil spiky shapes of them!

    Call me old fashioned but I must the strat shape cannot be topped, they look the best, most comfortable in any position and have a ton of variety from which to choose.

    It also helps that they don't look cheesy like most BC Rich guitars...

    Ugh I don't like the look of that headstock, disgusting really. And that odd looking obtuse handle looks pretty nasty as well

    But strats are hardly "metal" are they? Oh I know some metal players use them, but the poster seems to be looking for something more....angular.
    Anyway, Strats do not look as cool as my RR3, or even a good old Les Paul or SG. :D

    You're correct though - Parker's are fucking horrible. How the fuck are they "metal"? More like jazz. Absolutely fucking horrible.

    a Hamer Scarab, about 300 bucks on musiciansfriend.com, or go to used guitar stores and ebay and pawn shops and you could find something wacked for cheap from the 80's

    ^ESP Vipers as well, in my opinion... kind of a pointless question though.
