if it was me i'd go for either the epi explorer or the ESP-LTD EX-400
they're probably the best guitars up there
#3
I went for the epiphone 58, The dean's nice, But everyone is buying deans jistnow, and the gold hardware is always a personal favourite, asthetically.

just wondering

currently im still torn between the dean the esp and the jackson

I have the goth. It's a good guitar. The only thing is that the pickups suck tremendously. And btw, the fretboard is rosewood, not ebony.

I would go for the ESP ex 400.

oh ok
i think im going to settle on the kelly
because of the locking trem
then eventually get the esp

For me it would be between the EX-400, Rotor EX, and KE3. All three are great, it's just a matter of personal preference.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

I had a Rotor, it was alright for what it was but it was overpriced. The Korean Dean guitars aren't too great and are overpriced, the Epiphones are a solid choice, the Kelly is pretty solid too.


I say get a Hamer standard. Much better guitar IMHO.
