Hey so I have a choice between two guitars and its really hard for me to choose which would be best. 1. Is the Cbv 1122 and 2. Is the Dean Ml Shadow just google them for the specs. Let me know which would be best for a 3 year player. I play metal, alternative rock, heavy metal (Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, B4MV) that sort of stuff. I'm into really fast paced playing, and I need a guitar that can support such playing. I would also love to know which one you guys think is best for sustain and squealing (pickup wise). All that sort of good stuff I trust you guys on this so let me know what you think. Or if you have a better suggestion that would be great to. Thanks
