    So I maybe have a chance to pick up a Manne Ventura for about $600.

    There's not much info on the internet about them. I'm especially curious about their pickups. The model I'm looking at has 4 mini humbuckers.

    Will this guitar be able to pull off a half decent metal tone?

    The pups usually are very articulate and defined. Consider that it's a custom shop guitar, for 600$ it's a total steal, you can swap pickup with some duncans easily and have a great instrument anyway

    Thanks for the response. I think my main concern is the fact that it doesn't have a square pickup cavity, so fitting a normal humbucker in there might take some routing of the cavity?

    Might be, but nothing major I think

    I remember when I was GASing HARD for the Taos model back when I started playing.
    For 600, yes, go for it! It was easily over 2000 new.
