Ok, so I've just been to a guitar shop to try out some guitars and I'm looking for something that is almost completely different to my PRS SE custom. I've narrowed my choices down to two guitars I liked.
Zakk Wylde Les paul
Pros:
. £350 used but physically in mint condition
. Great unique tone from the EMGs, something my PRS deffinately doesn't perform
Cons:
. Gold on the bridge has been worn slightly

Dean Razorback
Pros:
. fantastic metal tone, like the devil gargling dinosaurs!
. Looks great
. All the pros of a floyd rose
Cons:
. Twice as expensive
. All the cons of a Floyd rose

Can anyone give me their opinion on which would be best, or even suggest something else?
Also, at the end of the day, I'm a metal player, If I really was looking for something completely different I would have gone with a Strat.

Amp?

I could go and buy the les paul now, but I don't mind saving for the razorback if its worth it
I dont mind a used guitar, this one especially since its in such good nick
To be honest the FR sounds like more hassle than its worth but if the sound is worth it then yes.

since you already have a non FR guitar i guess you could go for an FR.
BUT razorbacks are not that good IMO.

what is your budget?
and can you go to your music store's used guitar section to look at some Ibanez'?

you know what...I'm having the exact same problem...I don't know whether to get a Razorback, and a Les paul Black Beauty sort of guitar...

god, it's all so difficult! lol

Well...I have a Marshall MGHDFX so I don't need an amp...and I am willing to go to any budget as long as the guitar is good basically....if it will serve a good purpose...

ATM though, my first option atm is a Razorback...because there just that little bit more esoteric compared to a Gibson les paul...

But I don't know..I love them both... :P

same, any help would be appreciated...

eurgh, the ZW LP has them bloody awful EMG-Hz in it, id stay clear of those.

id recommend an Ibanez Xiphos over the two you mentioned, or a simple RG.

Epiphone Hummingbird
Epiphone Futura Custom Prophecy (Twin EMG)
Vox Valvetronix VT20+
Vox Wah
Boss MD-2
Danelectro Cool Cat Drive
Boss EQ
