So basically I'm getting the ESP pink sawtooth. An actual ESP not LTD or Edwards. I just found out that its possible for me to get the Customshop version but idk if it would be worth it...

Normal ESP sig series pink sawtooth: $2,234 (discount alreadi, but will ask for even lower )

Custom Shop ESP pink sawtooth: $3,528 (not actually sure about the price but should this should be the max price of it. I'm expecting like a few hundred bucks cheaper tho)



I'm thinking normal cuz with all the spare money I could even get another guitar :P or a new amp lol.

Extra stuff: DBZ IS ON EBAY! Venom $999, the one on display on NAMM! import ver btw. Seems fkin sexy. I would definitely get it myself but im going for the ESP This one has the non floating headstock for sum reason tho (but i like it more than floating one )


SO SEXY!!! I think this is the guitar that they're actually selling

I thought ESP custom shops were more in the 5K range?

Edit: are the proper tags, yours are kind of backwards.

I'd say get the Standard, along with new amp or pedals or savings for university. :/

I wouldn't get either one. The price is insane, and only because its an Alexi guitar. You can get a USA rhodes for half the price.
#7
You could get a Gibson for that price!

A USA RR goes for about the same price as the Stock ESP (on MF atleast, don't think there are much places cheaper than them, save used).

IMO those DBZ Vs look awesome, I'd probably buy it over an Alexi model (price being a major factor here). However I'm very weary of buying a guitar I have not played.

Im bout to say something thats gonna scare off the ppl who wants the DBZ guitars...

Wait for it...


Its Made In China.

That already puts a huge doubt in lots of ppl's mind. But I trust Dean I'd get one later on anyways. They might make Venom 7s ! awesome!

Well the dealer for Jackson kinda overcharges so I gave up on Jackson. This one I'm talking about the USA series. Pro series cost a bit more than the normal price but not that overpriced like the USA ones. I did consider the RR24 but still I like the Alexi more. Well I didnt buy anything for a LONG time so I'm prepared to spend the money for the ESP.

I heard DBZ has great quality instruments. So, I'm going with the DBZ.


Well so far I've only heard of one person that actually played a USA and Import DBZ. He says its great so I guess it should be pretty decent. Im getting the ESP first so I guess that Venom is going to someone else Unless I get some more money somehow and my parents probably would kill me. Well who cares as long as its guitar I'd go for it
#14
Why are you getting the pink sawtooth when they just came out with the orgasmically beautiful blacky?



Easily the best looking guitar finish I have ever seen.

Yeah, the lower level stuff is. But there are Japanese and USA models as well. They all aren't made in China.

TBH, I don't think that there was a point for you making this thread because your mind was already made up before you made this thread. Kind of a waste of time.

you can get a really nice custom guitar for around the same price, such as an ormsby http://www.ormsbyguitars.com/

I think black doom death metal is just plain stupid. go flame on me but i can't hear nothing but shit on those songs with everything in drop A or below. also it could've been without lyrics as you'd never hear them anyway.

why go customshop at all? unless you're getting a feature (or several features) that aren't offered with the stock pink V i don't see the point in spending $1000 more. unless you wanted a string-through 3 humbucker V made out of koa or something, which would be ****ing badass, just by the way.

but seriously, besides something out there like that i say go for the stock model

First off the Venom and BOP is ONLY made in china (import versions) these 2 are the ones people want the most. Of course the US cost alot so wtv.

I don't want the Blacky cuz:
1. They don't have it in stock
2. The body is like glitter stuff (cool but still...)
3. The pinstripe basically blends in with the body so when you play live (the ppl lookin at it just sees a black guitar)
