Prev1 of 11Next

Using extended-range guitars is not something new in the world of rock, but it’s been for the last several years that these guitar models are in the expansion in the modern progressive, technical and djent metal.

Prog Sphere took a hard task to enlist some of the greatest prog and tech metal bands that employ extended-range guitar models in their work. Feel free to post your favorites and recommendations in the comments down below, and meanwhile enjoy some great music.

    What about John Petrucci / Dream Theater? If thats your Top 11, he’s number 0.5.

      Petrucci is a great guitarist, but I gave advantage to these bands.

    It’s funny how Devin Townsend is put really high on this list even though he thinks that prog and tech metal are just “masturbatory bullshit”. But then again he’d be delighted to see Meshuggah as #1.

    I actually don’t think traditional prog are in the same category as the relatively newer djenty prog.
