Now im in a metal band, im the rhytm guitarist, the lead guitarist has a dean 'dave mustaine signiture flying V' guitar, at the minute im using a 'vintage SG' but im looking a more 'metal' guitar with better quality sounds.
been looking at both Jackson and Dean guitar websites and this guitar caught my eye



now it has:

Bolt-on alder body
rock maple neck
compound-radius rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets
sharkfin inlays
EMG-HZ pickups
and Floyd Rose® tremolo.

anybody got one? would love some feedback apprantly these are around £400.00....

Not bad, but it has a few downsides.

#1 The Floyd is a Jackson Floyd Rose and not very good quality. However, this can be replaced with an Original Floyd Rose for around $200 and it is a direct drop in.

#2 The pickups are passive EMG pickups - this may be fine for some people, but most would want to swap them out for other passive pickups, or just rewire the guitar and put in active EMGs. But that all comes down to personal choice.

Other than those 2 things, this is a nice guitar. I've always like the Jackson Pro series. For the price, they really can't be beat - good quality, good sound and Japanese manufacturing. You can't beat that for $400.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

As much as I love Jackson because they are my favorite guitars I'd go with an Esp/Ltd V-401.
Jackson's low end guitars are really nice but don't offer as much as an Ltd at that price. But once you get to the high end Jackson's nothing compares. Ex: you can get a Jackson RR3 for about $800 or a V-401 for about 600-700 and its way better.

All in all go for a Ltd 400 series guitar, you won't be disappointed.
Edit: About Jackson floyds being crap...That person has no Idea what he is talking about. Those trems are really reliable. And A V shaped guitar nice choice btw.
