Default Looking for a Guitar to Buy

I have been playing electric guitar now for about two years and now I want to buy a really good guitar. I play a lot of fast stuff so I was wondering what guitar I should buy.

Please enlighten me with your infinite knowledge of guitars

In response to your questions i'm looking for more of a metal guitar that has a heavy sound to it, and yes I am looking to get serious about playing guitar even in front of people. Since you said your a fan of Gibson guitars i'd like to hear what you think about the Explorer or whatever it's called now.

Thanks

the best thing to do is go to your local music store and ask to try all the guitars... find something you like and go with it

That is the best advice, really.
