hello

plz im confuse help me to chose between this guitars

1
B.C. Rich Kerry King Metal Master V Electric Guitar, Tribal Fire $249.95
2
B.C. Rich Ironbird Electric Guitar, Onyx $299.9
3
Dean V Dave Mustaine Bolt-on Classic Black $264.81
4
Jackson JS30 Electric Guitar 299.9

so what r u think ? and why ??
#2
Jackson JS, because low-end Dean and Bich are useless imo.

Though the JS series isn't known for excellence either. Is this a first guitar?

Go for the JS, best of that bunch by farrr.

I tried the Dean VMNT-X with the United Abominations graphic. I liked the feel of the neck, I was surprised how easy getting to fret 24 was. The pickups sounded alright, pinch harmonics came out easily and vibrantly. I didn't really give them a full on test though.

None. Get an Epiphone G-400 Vintage.

* presses none of the above*
they're all prety crappy guitars. The jackson would be your best bet since it will have at least some quality. Avoid low end dean and Bc rich unless you're planning some serious modding.

Look at some schecters,ibanez and stuff. Obviously you're looking for a metal guitar but don't choose a metal guitar because it looks metal. My squier plays metal better then most BC riches i've tried

Only bad thing about the JS30 series is their pickups\Indian Cedro bodies on the older ones.
I think the newer ones are Alder Mines indian Cedro >.< Great first guitar. Ive only played a Dean Evo (Low end $259.99 one) And a BC rich Bronze Warbeast, And like that guy said, Low end BC rich and Dean are pretty useless. The wiring/hardware is bad, From what ive heard Input jacks falling out, pickup springs breaking, Saddles falling off while changing strings. But theres about the same amount of bad things for the jacksons, Necks warp easy, tone and volume pots tend to come loose and start to crackle string through body metal rings fall out, tuning heads come loose. I've only had half of those go wrong with mine, But meh. Its a good guitar and fun to play. As for V's If you can sit and not hit your balls your all good , I sat with a JS30 Kelly and hit my balls :l

i agree with choosing the jackson from those choices, in my experience, Rich's arent THAT bad sound wise, but ive had many problems with the electronics a couple months down the line. Jacksons are usually consistent with their necks and electronics, though im not a big fan of typical "metal" guitars, as said above. listen to some sound clips online in your price range of other guitars that don't scream "brutal" just from the looks of it. good luck with your purchase!

No its the 3 one
#12
Whoa, wait up. You already have 2 guitars?

I'm assuming those are low-level entry ones too; why get another? You won't get anything spectacular at that price; why not save for a mid-range or even high-range price, and get something really great?

Don't get a crap starter/low end guitar if it's going to be your third guitar.Save up and get something that you can actually play on for years without modding or having it **** up on you.

Wait.......what?

Is it a REAL PGM or did you buy a copy? Because for 260 bucks that was either an amazing deal or the guitar had been set on fire and shat upon by nuns with irritable bowel syndrome.

Sir, you most likely bought a fake... they'd never sell a PGM for $260.

That pic looks like it's a copy of this:




I highly doubt that anyone in their right mind would sell a real PGM model for $260,even if it was beat to ****.That one seems like it's in good condition so I bet it's a fake.I've never seen a PG with that paint scheme with black pups and standard dot inlays,but I could be wrong.What's the serial number on it?

wooo so its real

No, it's probably not. Notice the Sharktooth inlays on the real one.

Also, yours was supposedly made at the Cort factory in South Korea. As far as I know, Signature models (except for the Jem 555) are all made in Japan at the FugiGen factory.
