None of them. Certainly not the KKV. I used to have one in my metal days. Was a horrible, horrible instrument.


+1. keep looking. You can do better.

But, for whatever reason, I had to pick one of those, it would be the cort by default because I would eliminate the other two right off the bat. I hate Vs and FRs

She will join the prom.

She insists to wear this lights.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

So far you've had 5/5 responses saying they'd really not want any of them... that's pretty much what the rest of UG will probably say, too.


wat about esp ? I just edited my original post and added this too.
#10
The ESP is the lesser of the 4 evils.
GUITARS:
PRS Custom 24 (Black Slate 10 top w/birds)
ESP E-II Horizon NT-III (RDB)
ESP Eclipse II - Snow White

AMPS:
Mesa Rectoverb combo

It's not bad, but still none of them are very good. At that range you're looking at guitars that might last you a year or two before you go "man I REALLY need a new guitar"
#12
Maybe the Cort, but to be honest I wouln't spend money on any of those guitars.
Gear:
MXR Super Badass -->
BOSS SD WAZA -->
FENDER CD 140 SCE -->
MXR M300 REVERB -->
TC ELECTRONIC FLASHBACK
ESP EC 401 VF TSB -->
BOSS KATANA HEAD 100 WATT -->

Nope. Even the esp. Agathis body and 22 frets on an esp? Wth!
For the price of the esp you could prolly get an rg370 with a zr2 trem or a used ltd ex-351 (still 22 frets but mahogany at least)
#14
None of those. I'd look for a used Schecter or a used Ibanez S470.

And agathis is awful.

the poll is taking a different turn...where people didint even talk about jackson kelly. I'v heard alder is one of the worst wood ever...

uh yeah that's why fender uses it for pretty much all of their guitars
#17
I own a Jackson JS30 Kelly (fixed bridge) good guitar, nice and solid, but I have to say an LFR in that price range is not going to be great.

Is there any particular reason you want a pointy guitar?

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.
#18
IMO none of them are worth it.

Oh and, just for future reference: Agathis= They are the no-no's of the guitarwood world.

#19
If you already have a guitar you can play then save up a little longer. Play some guitars the next price range up. Take your time and don't limit yourself to 4 brands. TRY EVERYTHING and find what you like in your price range.
My Gear:

Jackson RR3 Pro
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Fender CD140 Acoustic/Electric
Line 5 HD500 effects unit
Marshall MA100

i have a budget of $650 and these are the guitars I find in that range. Well I wanted a explorer if I get it in that range. and there are only 2 explorers in that range. I tried the JS35...sounds good but even I hate FRs. But I can manage. The cort is not available anywhere here. But I had a talk with cort personnel..they say I might get the guitar by september mid week. Rest all are available.

But out of those 3 I can live with agathis.
