    I'm currently playing an ESP F-255. Its mediocore at best, I find it too growly or WAY to flat and lifeless, theres no in between

    Very few things speak metal like a BC Rich. For me it's a BC Rich Mockingbird.

    Geddy Lee Jazz bass and occasionally my Stingray. I will also be using my SX P-bass which has been dubbed "The Trooper" once I get it back from Hambone.

    Ibanez SR500 - sounds great, cuts through the mix beautifully.

    On the other hand, my Cirrus 6 really doesn't cut through very well...

    Stingray was my weapon of choice.

    However, Duck Hunt/Super Mario was my game of choice.

    I play a Peavey Fury 6, sounds great, but I don't go for the trebely tone you find in a lot of metal, so it may not suit certain people.
