I am a 16 year old Melodic Metalcore/Death Metal guitarist from New Zealand, residing in Australia.
I play an ESP LTD EC-50 tuned anywhere between Drop A# and Drop C, and a Shecter Demon-7FR tuned to standard (BEADGBE) and Drop A (with the G string tuned down to F#) run through a Line 6 Spider IV 75W. No effects as the amp pretty much does it all.
I am looking into purchasing a 5-string bass guitar and tuning that to Drop A (as I prefer drop tunings to standard tunings) and an Epiphone AJ-220S acoustic guitar for some variation to the standard 'CHUGG CHUGG' Metalcore that I'm so used to producing.
As for my playing style, I'm not particularly 'virtuoso' like on guitar. My playing is influenced heavily by guitarists like Adam Dutkiewicz from Killswitch Engage and Jeff Ling from Parkway Drive. I never learnt guitar from listening to bands like Metallica and Iron Maiden like many of my peers, so my playing doesn't have the NWOBHM or Thrash influences that they do. Just pure, straight, Metalcore.
