Okay so I own a dean v255 and it's been really good to me but (like every other guitarist) I get that urge of getting a new guitar I played it yesterday and actually really liked the feel and playability. Should I sell the dean? Thoughts?

Two totally different necks. I like the original Wizard more than the Wizard II. Make sure to try them all!

Hmm, well bear in mind the significantly different shapes and the pickups- the Ibby has passives (and in my experience, stock Ibanez pups are often poor even at Prestige level) and the Dean has active EMG's. The Ibanez is however undoubtedly more comfortable to play and is probably more versatile.

I love Ibanez so of course, I'd encourage you to get that :P but seriously, consider those points. The Dean will be much more suited to metal, both features AND looks, and the Ibby will be more versatile and likely more playable

Yah I also tried the s series one and that guitar felt a little weird. I played a couple of Jackson's and ESPs too but those don't catch my attention to the feel.

Yeah I used to prefer the actives but I noticed how suited they are for one genre and I don't just play metal I also play jazz and for other rock projects. so the look of my v does feel awkward in those situations :p And in the end the end I'd be happy with either one. I like both feels and the pickups on this one aren't As bad as others I've played.
