I am starting on a V now, and I am undecided between a Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX or a Jackson JS30KV King V.

Price is the same and the main differences are that the Dean has a basswood body while the Jackson an alder body. Plus different pickups of course.
I also heard that the Jackson's neck is pretty unbalanced, heavier than the body.

Thanks for advice.
i have a jackson ke 3 and the neck is heavier, all you have to do is stick a weight on the back or get a wide leather strap
