Top 10 Metal Guitar Models

Regardless of the brand. These are the guitars that helped shape the foundation of heavy metal history from then to now.

The Top Ten

1 Gibson SG

Gibson SG has the looks that stun people, the second you look at one you will envy it. Excellent sound and playability! And if you get the SG standard you have an American made guitar.

Angus Young Model, high output pickups in the bridge gives the guitar that hot "pick up everything" type tone. It's almost as if the humbucker adds for over drive to the amp.

From Hendrix to hammett this guitar has been used so it deserves number 1

The Contenders

11 Schecter Hellraiser

Not sure about Les Paul but from some reviews I have noticed it sounds like more hard rock/blues than metal. Though there are metal guitarists who used Les Paul. - zxm
