If a v is what you want i think its an really good choice compared to others in its price range, like a jackson. Honestly, its either this or the esp v500. The plus on the esp is it comes stock with EMG's.

wow.....looks nice. DiMarzios come stock, which is nice. Seems worth the price, but it has no FR. Most shredders like FRs.

Paul Gilbert (racer X ) Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe stump (not exactly famous) and even people liek Vai and Satch dont constantly use it.

Anyway I'd get an amp as you odnt have a main one to be honest.

I will be getting a Peavey Windsor very soon, so I have the amp bit fixed. But sou you're saying that it isn't a big improvement fromt the Jackson?

Edit: And I'm not so much after the Racer X tone, I will be playing that type of music but not just Racer X exclussively.

I think that for the price range of the guitar is is a pretty all around solid axe. Neck thru, Ibanez, can't go wrong.

Funny, I seem to recall Vai helping DESIGN one, and I know for a fact that he is currently designing Ibanez' newest Licensed Floyd as we speak. He also had his commercial career almost based upon his use of it. Satch is famous for Floyd use as well.

And also, EMGs are not a plus over DiMarzios, anyday IMO.

It looks good on paper, but it's not as slick as the front view pictures would lead you to believe.

First of all, it's r-r-really heavy - might be an issue for some people. Second, it's thick (and thus heavy). Think almost SZ kind of thick. Third, the neck joint is an embarrassment for a neck-through guitar. It has this awkward heel that I'd consider pretty bad even for a set neck. The upper fret access is not the best at all. This pic might show some of that off.

I didnt say Vai didnt use it, cos he does it's bloody obvious and being as big a fan of him as me I'd know.
But they dont CONSTANTLY use it like most seem to think, round here its an extreme or not at all

And if you're getting a decent amp then go for it, nice guitar!

I don't have a problem with heavy guitars (I'm no small guy). However, does the awkward neck-joint mean bad upper fret access?

Gilbert doesn't use trems anymore. Satch and Vai ALWAYS use trems.

I, personally, found the fret access to be worse than on an RG. I just wouldn't advise buying it without trying. You might love it, or you might get very disappointed.

Yeah, I will have to try it, although it can be hard to find where I live.

You wouldn't by any chance know where to get a tab of Joe Stump's Je T'aime? One of the most beautiful songs ever written.

Satch and Vai don't always use trems, they use them tastefully, and use them to make their music sound good. . herman Li ALWAYS uses the trem and badly at that.
