So, I'm going to be enjoying a nice sum of money soon (about $500) and I want to get a v-shaped guitar cause they look freakin awesome! (yes I know, one should never chose a guitar by looks but whats more metal than a V?). I play alot of different styles but mostly metal and hard rock (think AC/DC, System of a down, Metallica, Megadeth, etc...). My current rigg is a raven rg200 and a boss me-6, if that matters at all. Whats a good v guitar to get?
get some more money and buy yourself an Jackson RR or maybe an ESP Alexi
Alexi-600 or Jackson RR24. Or maybe an Esp V-500. I own the Dave Mustaine LTD knock off and it owns! ESP or Jackson for V's!
Any Jackson, Jackson RR FTW!!!
Sorry, but Dean's at that price are crap.
You can find a used Gibson for around $500.
