Hey guys, my budget has taken a hit and I can no longer justify dropping 500+ dollars on a guitar. I play mostly metal, with some punkish influences. Right now I am borrowing my roommates RG550 and playing through my Roland Cube 30. I want a V, preferably without a floyd. Ive kinda narrowed my search down to the ESP LTD V-200 and the Dean VMNTX. Anyone have any experience with either of these guitars? Or have anything else to suggest?

I have played neither of those guitars, but i do know that the LTD is very likely better. I would really recommend saving for the V-400, though.

Dean. Those EMG-ESP pickups suck balls.

i agree 100% go with the ltd if you plan on swapping out the pickups

do you just want it for the shape? Because in that case buy a squier strat and take a saw to it. Are you even considering tonal quality?

There is a non floyd Jackson RR3 at ZZsounds... I have never heard of it before or seen it on Jacksons site, so I am kinda wary.

Anyone heard about it?


They're legit, Only purpose is to equal the higher the shape and rare finishes of the higher end RRs' bodies without a tremolo system. I'd say they're worth it if you plan to swap the Duncan Designed pick ups in them.

Check youtube for the Polka Dot RRs, white ivory RR3 and the black-yellow stripe RR3. Those are the custom models with said finishes.
