Metallica is one of my favorite bands. A friend recently got me to like SOAD (Yes, I know, pretty late to start liking them now, but meh). Queen is the best overall though. Brian May's Red Special... my-oh-my what a beauty! Ibanez is my personal favorite. Have you seen one of those Jem 7v7s? Or Joe Satriani's Ibanez? How about Steve Vai's Jem-Evo? Or the Steve Vai 20th Anniversary? That looks crazy wild. But the purest, and greatest guitar is: The Black Beauty by Gibson. The one with the Bigsby setup. I've only been able to play it once, but it is absolutely amazing. Great tone, smooth and beautiful fretboard... I own: An Orange Ibanez Acoustic (Not sure on the model) and a JS100. Also, I have a Marshall Amp and (real soon) a pedal :D So excited! Anyways, school... I used to perform in Junior High. Speaking of which, Math is my favorite and best subject. History a close second and science after that. By the way, I'm in a very, very happy relationship with my bestfriend, Adri!
