Yep, looking for V with with Floyd. Not necessarily an OFR, but should be reliable. Now, my budget is around 400$, so mostly things will be used

I was thinking of getting a Jackson RR3, but most on ebay used probably aren't 06 series, so I'm not too sure if they're reliable

The other option I was looking at was a Dean Noir VXT (Noir V with a floyd). Only problem is, I dont know about THEIR quality floyds

Just because its an 06 series doesnt mean its better than the older ones. i actually prefer the rhoads vs

Ya but most people agree the '06 series has a more reliable floyd, AND it has better pickups (SD JB/Jazz)

i dont own either one and ive never tuned one ive just played them both and i liked the older one better. i would probly go with a rhoads overall though
#5
id go with the rhoads even though its alittle older, the pickups on those things are just awesome, and id figure youd just get a whole lot better sound out of it than the dean

I prefer the RR V shape because it's easier to sit down with. If you want FR get an OFR. It's the best floating bridge on the marked I think.

what is a solo?

i was actually just going to come in here and suggest a rr3. i have that same floyd on my jackson soloist, and honestly, its all your gonna need. the jb is a quite nice pickup, IMO its probably one of the best passive pickups you can get for a metal type tone (dont get me wrong it has beatiful cleans too). i have no experience with the jazz so i cant help you there. really though i have never been very impressed by anything other than american jacksons, the korean ones (i think they are korean anyways) just feel cheap. seriously look into finding a used american, you will not be disapointed.

Yes it does, you just showed your ignorance by trying to look smart. The new Jackson RR3 has a better trem, JB/Jazz pickups instead of the ****ty Duncan Design ones, and slightly better build quality.

although the guitar isnt great, the epi gothic v fr has an fr, and isnt too bad i guess..... but i dont think youll like that suggestion

get a rr3. then save up and when you have the money, get an OFR if you want. They should fit w/out any mods.
#12
Yes I know the OFR is pure excellence, but I wanted to know if the RR3's new (or even old) Floyd would hold up for AT LEAST a year, or another healthy amount of time like that. And ya, I know that Jackson Floyds are direct swaps.

Any info for the Dean? I did hear the Noir series was pretty good. But what of it's Floyd?

yeh they should hold up between 6-12 months depending on how you set up the trem and how much you really use it. and i havent had any use in much of dean trems. and its only the JT580 trem thats a direct swap
