Cant deside between 2 guitars. Need imput.

I need help deciding between two guitars at the moment. I am looking at purchasing either a Dean Switchblade or a PRS SE Torero.

As far as look and components go these two guitars fit the bill for what I am looking for.

The only thing I find undesirable about Dean guitars is how much they rely on Dimebags name to sell there guitars. I want to buy a quality instrument not a show peace.

Here are links to the two guitars. If any one has any input on either instrument I would be very grateful.

I'd suggest the PRS. Personally, I find the longer scale length to be more comfortable. Not to mention, the Dean headstock is huge and awkward. Just my 2 cents.

Ultimately you're gonna get whatever you want regardless of input because it'll come down to the feel. Putting that aside, I say go for the torero, I've played with both guitars and the Torero is definitely the better guitar. The neck feels great, the sound is impeccable and it is all round more versatile than the Dean.

Go with the PRS, best decision out of these two.

I'm sure Dean makes fine guitars but I have yet to play one I like. I can't pin it down to specifics but my hands don't like em.

Have you played both guitars? You need to play both of them and come to your own decision. I've bought a lot of guitars and gear over the years, but I've always relied on my own judgment to come to a decision. In the end, you have to play this guitar every day - not us. It needs to fit you and your style.

I couldn't agree with you more. The only problem is that I live in the middle of no where and I would have to spend around 200 dollars in gas to get to a music store that might have one of these instruments. I came to these two guitars after reading all of the reviews and videos on them that I could find.

Try watching some videos of both guitars on Youtube, man. Reviews, etc. There are plenty of them. I think it's the only way out for you now.

Personally I like the PRS better. Dean necks are rough as ****, to me.
