    I'm curious as to why a JP would not be a "metal" guitar. You can get it in Stealth black, so the de facto metal color is taken care of. The only real difference I see is that it doesn't have sharp body angles and a pointy headstock.

    It is being made. HH or HH AL!!!!!!!!!!

    But Deano I think you must be insane to think the JP is not a metal guitar.
    My name is Rob and I'm an AL-coholic!
    The MM90 AL is the most underrated axe on the planet!

    I buy my balls from the number one EBMM dealer in Australia, the all round nice guy and legendary Colin!His website is www.guitarplanet.com.au Give him a call to order your balls!!!!!

    metals for... ****


    All black AL with EMG 81/85.

    Pointy enough? lol


    The Axis is a metal monster and the JP is imo a very metal guitar but still looks conservative enough so you don't look a douche.

    So what is for you the definition of a metal guitar ?
    If the sound is good for playing the Dark Eternal Night, it should be good for playing all the metal repertoire ...
    If you need to have a pointy guitar to be a metal guitarist ... well it's because you're not truly metal

    dwells, let's keep our heads up.
    thinking rational involves accepting that we are all subjective, and that is more obvious when taking art for example as music is

    I am not an EBMM fanatic , but I think JP model does it all for a metal player.

    maybe it would help a few hints from you : what is a metal guitar in you opinion?

    JP is a signature model, and DT is not metal you are right, but progressive metal, and that is an eclectic style of music, right? so metal is there also

    the fact that not many metal players use EBMM come on it is not a solid argument, let's be realistic.

    there are many reasons to explain the choice of people :-)
