The Faded V's I've seen in person were pretty poor; mainly in terms of finish and construction.

If you want to go the Gibson route, atleast save up for a standard.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!
The Faded V is really good but it may not be able to go that heavy. Maybe with a pickup change it would give you a heavier sound but alone it cant do that.

Not even the standards would probably sound very good for Melodic Death Metal.

Try Jackson or Esp/Ltds.(unless you really want the Gibson V)
I've played one and it sounded very heavy through a JSX. Its a great guitar, decent price too.
