How's this for a new guitar ?!

I have to think about that one or this one ...

Image

almost everything speaks for the V.
It's cheaper than the Dean ... $530(incl.shipping) vs. Dean $650(incl.shipping)
It has the Floyd(it's a copy but hey ;))
It doesn't make me look like a Dimebag wannabe ;)

the cons are that it's used.
doesn't come with hardcase.
have a few dings.
I don't know nothing 'bout the neck :?

i haven't played any of them and yes, they're both off the net 8O

However, I already have a Dean I like, but I don't know how the
neck on the ML compares to the one I have now.
Also, when I played an ESP a few years ago I liked
the feel of the neck, but that was some time ago though.

It almost looks like Dave Mustaine's DV8.

Just looking at the guitars Metalhead, wihtout even playing them...the V looks like an Ultra-fast guiatar with a string arrangement like 42-09, for some great lead playing with EMG pickups, and the Dean looks like a 46-10 string setup for great rhythm and medium-fast lead, with DiMarzios or SD's, i personally would lean more towards the Dean.:)

as I said earlier: I already have a Dean, a Vendetta(strat shaped) which
would work great for blues and rock :)

sure I like Deans, but the ML-shape is just too much of a Dimebag guitar
really, and though I really like his playing, I don't really wanna come off
as a Dimebag clone/ripoff whatever. I fear that having an ML would add
to that :?

The V however, really screams METAL :twisted: , the heavier kind (which I love).
... and I have not seen anything like it before, although it's remiscent
of the DV8 ...

For me, I wouldn't choose one until I play them both for comparision just like Rock said. Unless you have a lot of money... :roll:

The Deans come with warranty though.

Oh yeah, between the two guitars, there's the bridge difference. The Floyd Rose actually requires more attention because of all the tuning with it. If you play heavy strings gauges, then it'll take a lot of time setting it up properly. I guess if you want the Eddie-ish sound, then I'd go with the V, or if you don't want all the trouble of seting it up, then the Dimebag is the one. :o Just another factor.

Why would you buy the V if I like Eddie ? :P

The thing that speaks for the Dean is the lack of Floyd.
I have never used one before, only briefly a few years back when I started playing with my old Ibanez, but then there has been an 2 basses, 1 Epi LP and now 1 Dean Vendetta.

If the ML neck feels somewhat like my Vendetta neck, then it's settled :twisted:

... and I've been planning a long time on getting my stratcopy back together
again and put in the humbucker that originally was in my Dean :D
The strat has a trem-arm as well :D
