Hey , I am urgently in need of help!!
I have to choose between a Dean Dime V 255 or an Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos [6string]!!
Could any one give me the pros and cons and let me know which is better....much appreciated!!

Play them yourself and make your own decision. You can't get us to decide something that all comes down to you.

The thing is...I can't play dean dime V 255 b'cuz its not availible where i live , but i tried the ibanez xiphos and it was pretty good...but i've heard lot of negative stuff about xiphos , like neck dive and Edge iii!!
So i was just looking for a comaprison and an overall rating...
#5
It is b'cuz i'm leaving the country and i have to buy the guitar within one week...anyways any help would be appreciated!!

Anything but a guitar with an Edge 3 tremolo (ergo not the Ibanez)

Why do you have to buy a guitar now? Are you moving under a rock or something?

Just go to a guitar store where you move to next....

out of the two though i would be inclined to go for the dean. if you are moving somewhere where you cant buy a guitar(or get 1 repaired i assume) the problems with the edge III would be insurmountable(?)
