are you paying extra for the colours? if you are, do the decent thing and buy a better guitar. at that price range you can't really afford to be paying extra for fancy colours.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

But seriously, don't waste your money on a fancy paint job for such a cheap guitar. Save up for something like an RR3 or Dinky and check out some of the finishes for them.

As previously stated, the KVX10 is kind of cheap. Throwing an awesome finish on an OK axe doesn't make it great, playability wise. It may look awesome, but axes are all about feel.

Unless you don't like RRs, you should consider the RR3.

Umm, aren't those the specs for the USA Jackson that I think goes for over 1k???
A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music

well yes, im showing y there so exspensive, the guitar i want to buy has basically a shot floyd rose slapped on it and some humbuckers, i was gonna buy a REAL floyd rose and buy betetr pick ups for it.

why not just buy a better jackson with a desent pair of pickups already in, you'd probely be better off doing this then buying a cheap one and spending loads on new pickups a a floyd rose .

well basically i'll only need to not spend my money for about 4 months with this, and i'll have this for about 3-5 years b4 i get a really good one. because my musical talent isnt soo good that i want spend it on a good guitar. probly the best song i can nearly play is master of puppets (excluding solo and interlude). see my point?

ok. well if your set on that guitar I'd go for the blue ghost flame, It looks really sweet.

The KVX10, the guitar you are asking about, does not come with a flame paintjob; rather, it comes with the swirl and flamed tops.

If you must get a King V, get the KV2T. It's a good guitar.

exactly, which is why you shouldn't be wasting money on a fancy finish which would be better spent on improving the spec.
