Hey guys,
Im from India and the guitars honestly suck here so im planning to get one from the US and i wanna get something that will last for a while and is really good. Right now my options are:
- Jackson Demmelition King V
- Dean Razorback Cemetery Gates
- Dean MAB1
- Jackson SL3 Soloist
These are the guitars im looking at. I play many different styles ranging from classic rock to heavy metal. Budget is around $1300 so any other suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

I'd say go with the Jackson. The SL3 would be a good choice.

Be sure to check out ESP/LTD guitars.

If you want to consider a Dean guitar, check out the USA MHG series and nothing else. Any signature guitar will be a big rip off.

I think that one you linked is pretty cool, but I can easily see how it might not be your cup of tea. ESP is a pretty reliable brand, especially in their mid/high price ranges

seriously wth is that?
And im not too fond of Ibanez guitars. Was leaving towards Jackson and dean. I havent looked at ESP too much. Are they any good?


Ibanez and Jackson have pretty similar neck profiles so I don't know why you don't like them.

Stay away from any of the Dime models and any other signature models. It's a rip off.


I can rant and rave about ESP/LTD I'll I want but it means nothing. Go try them when you're in the States and see how you like them. Quality wise though, they are great. Good hardware and solid construction.

Prob is im not going to the states till july next year. My dads going there for work at the end of this month and he said hed bring something back if i ordered it to him.

Your safest bet would be the Jackson SL3.


That way, if you don't like it, you can be assured somebody will buy it and you won't lose much money on it. Jacksons hold their value somewhat well
