Well, the non-USA made version costs $700-800, depending on where you get it. The USA made version costs a whopping $2,000 or more.

If you want a decent priced V with a floyd, Jackson may have the best value for the money. Them or ESP/LTD.

I played a couple of them in the past and I think they feel really nice. Good weight, good neck prole etc. I really do not like the dimebucker pickups though, I feel they lack character. Plus I have seen a Dean before with a bevel colour (black with silver bevel), and the paint was all smeared around the edges, it looked horrid and unacceptable for the price. I have heard the paint is is a bit common.

Check out the VMNT, the perfect guitar for Megadeth.
