Choosing The Right Metal Guitar

Whilst there are no set rules for choosing a guitar to play heavy metal music, there are certain things to look for when buying a guitar for the genre.

For starters, heavy metal guitars are usually electric and made with a solid body of wood - a more reliable choice than a semi-hollow or full hollow body, as metal music often makes use of high gain distortion and other effects.

In addition to this, a Heavy Metal guitar will also need to look the part, often with sharp, pointy edges and an aggressive look, but not always - that all depends on personal taste.
