It sounds like you’re looking for a metal/hard rock guitar.

The metal heads and heavy rockers need guitars that can handle their high output levels and serious distortions.

We’ve put together a list of a few of our favorite electric guitars to get you started.

Ibanez RGIB6 Baritone

The RGIB6 Baritone is an incredible hard rock/heavy metal guitar. The Baritone means the neck is a bit longer to make drop tuning easier and achieve heavier chunkier tones. The EMG active pickups are also setup with a slightly lower output to keep from overpowering the amp. It also includes a killswitch to immediately stop sound when you need.

  • Body: Basswood
  • Neck: 3 piece maple/bubinga
  • Fretboard: Ebony
  • Pickups: 2 EMG 60 active pickups

Dean ML Modifier

It wouldn’t be a heavy metal/hard rock list if we didn’t include Dean Guitars. The ML Modifier has an incredibly sleek body with a D shape neck for performance and speed

  • Body: Mahogany
  • Neck: Mahogany
  • Fretboard: Ebony
  • Pickups: 2 DMT humbuckers

Jackson JS22 Dinky

For my metal friends out there that want that dark menacing tone to be as pronounced as the look of the guitar. Check the JS22 out.

  • Body: Basswood
  • Neck: Maple
  • Fretboard: Rosewood
  • Pickups: 2 Jackson High-output humbuckers
