Dave Mustaine out of the two.

But there are better V's out there than the Mustain and the V.

Randy Rhoads and Schecter V-1 comes into mind.

Get the VMNT in silver, but definately consider a Rhoads model.

I own the Angel of Deth model Dave Mustaine V...

It's god in guitar form...

I've never played a better guitar.

.....The fact that it's a Dean on the other hand....
Don't be surprised if you get it and the first thing you have to do is reattach a wire. Deans are horrible about putting things together sloppily and retarded like..

The sound is ****ing amazing however, and I hate Gibson V's... Just opinion.. But they're just not brutal enough for me.

And also, if you DO get the VMNT.. Make sure you slap some DM signature LiveWires in that bitch.. Because they're so hot, and so ****ing clear.. Best pickup I've played on so far to my tastes.

EDIT: Nevermind.. The guitar in the picture has stock Seymours in it, but I overlooked in the features where it mentioned the Live Wires. So nevermind.

Doesn't one of the Mustaine models come with an HSH pickup combination and the 24 fret is like at the very end of the body?

Here are 2 Rhoads in your range.

The Demmelition is $250 more than the Flying V, but probably way worth it.

Demmelition = 2nd god in guitar form.. xD

And I'm not sure on that.... O.o The only one I research/know about is the Angel of Deth, and it's definately not that one.

I think I was thinking of a Batio superstrat from Dean.

I can't seem to find it anymore, I'm pretty sure it was limited to only like a 100 models (typical Dean) in late 2007.

yeah it does come with 24 frets not sure about the HSH

Also I am a BIG fan of Rhoads but his guitars are just TOOO small I tried em out at guitarcenter and it looks like a chop stick on my fingers. I'm 6 "2" and randy was short so maybe thats the reason?

Anyway..

dean Dave Mustaine sounds awesome

gibson. purely cause of re-sale value. but if your just needing a real instrument to do some old school thrashing and shredding on, probably go jackson.. the jackson stars stuff from japan is pretty bad ass. or USA is a pretty good place too i hear

VMNT by far!

24 frets, LiveWire pickups, ebony fingerboard, string-thru-body,...

Seriously, why bother with a Gibson if you could buy the Dean?

Or go for a Jackson like somebody else suggested.

I would say the Mustaine, I have played one and let me tell you I am currently saving to make it my 3rd sig ever haha. Dean's higher end V guitars are among some of the best guitars I have ever played they all have a very nice feel to them. Plus i feel All gibson guitars are overrated I have owned 3 lp's and a v and needless to say i dont have them anymore tho one LP that my dad gave me that he got in the 60's was stolen or i would have that still and that one did play nice.
