Hi guys,

I`m thinking of buying a second guitar around january when I'll travel to the States. Anyone got some experience with these two guitars? You could suggest some other guitar as well though...

btw. I'm using a dv-8r right now that has a 25 1/2 scale, would it feel awkward playing on shorter scale? 'Cause I'm going to keep playing both of them.

The Dean

I would recommend the Ec-500. It plays fantastic, has good pickups, and is visually much more stunning IMO.
Plus it would be comfortable to sit down and play with, and that's a plus right there.
It shouldn't feel awkward playing on a shorter scale. I switch from my 21 Fret guitar to my 24 fret guitar and also play bass, so it's not that hard to get used to.
I would also recommend looking at some possible jacksons or perhaps Schecters or Ibanezes, as it seems to me that you play metal.

That LTD blows the dean out of the water, I mean, the dean even has a 2 star rating.

I love me some LTDs, and the EC models are among ESP's finest.
I was liking deans for a while , but they seem a little over priced. Go with the Esp....?
