I wasn't sure where to look, or even where to put this, seeing on how I'm new and all, so i decided it would be most convenient to post a new topic about this.

Anyway, I really got my eyes set on a V shaped guitar. Specifically a V guitar without the Floyd rose tremolo locking, a lot of them I looked at has it. I was just looking for suggestions of anything under 800$. If it has Floyd rose, thats fine, I'm just trying to avoid that. My guitar at the moment has Floyd rose, and its a huge hassle and time consuming, because i try to change my strings every 3 weeks to a month. Pictures, any information, or even just a name would be fine.(:

Yeah I was looking at the RR Jacksons. My friend has one, and says its really nice, but I never got around to playing it.

The BC Rich NJ Junior deluxe V is a great deal. Original Floyd Rose, EMG 81/85, Neck-through. Just remember that BC Riches have pretty thick necks. They go for around $700-$770 as far as I've seen.

Keep in mind, that only bad floyd roses are a hassle, a well made one will keep tune for weeks.

The Jackson RR3 is also a great guitar, Great neck, Seymour Duncans, Licensed Floyd Rose (just as good as the original). It usually fetches around $650.

The Jackson KVX10 will be tempting, but I've heard nothing but bad things about the 'X' series.

WHY OH WHY WON'T YOU MAKE A PRO-SERIES LEVEL KING V, JACKSON?????

A '67-style Gibson V. Like the Faded series, but with a real paint job. Red ones are my personal favorite. Those and Jackson Rhodes Vs, like the RR1 or RR3, with the pinstripes, are probably the two best designs.

Not a big fan of gibson V's. I've never played a BC riches, so I'd have to try it out before i even consider it. (: Right now it's really a debate between some jacksons, and the ESP V-500, although to pickguard is a turnoff, its not that big of a deal. Also, I was looking at this: http://www.rondomusic.com/product1328.html, however the inlays suck, and its a brand I've never even heard of. I looked up some reviews on here, but none of them were for the that one, but they sound like good guitars for cheap, so it's being considered.

Schecter V-1 is nice, same with the new Trivium V from Dean, Corey's new signature guitar is a beaut

I'm actually not a fan of the dean headstock, yes I know, I'm super picky. The Dave Mustaine(sp?) V's do look pretty sweet though, but they're about 400$ over my budget, :P

Here's another agile V that alot cheaper. http://www.rondomusic.com/hornet.html It kinda looks like a Mustaine style V. This dude I no has a RR style V from them that he got for $150, and it sounds just as good as his $300 dollar Dean. Really nice and crunchy sound. Definitely for metal tho (but what else would you get a flying V for As for B.C. Riches I've never played one that I liked.

Erm, so? You just asked why they didn't have a pro-series KV, and i said they do. And $1250 is quite a decent price for the quality and specs you'd be getting with that axe.

I get it. I meant a pro King V in the KE3/RR3 price range. Tchnically, you're right though
#26
Jackson RR5, i would have got one if i wasnt after a guitar with a floyd rose, i played one in a shop, dead nice guitar. Or a KV of some kind, they have 24 frets if your after that.

yeah, i don't think i'll be getting a dean.
I think I might be getting a RR3, not the pro series.
but i could always jump it up an extra 100 and get the agile reaper chancery, which has emg pickups, and everything else being the same, which would be worth it, considering a single emg pickup is about 150$ if i remember correctly.
#34
I'm not actually into the orbit too much. The headstock is blah imo, the neck pickup is just... oddly shaped, and the inlays are blah, and I really have no use for 27 frets. 24 is fine for me. However, the body is beautiful. :P
#36


With a Gibson headstock.

EDIT: Ok, I didn't actually read the first post. But you have to admit that is an awesome guitar

Im gonna go +1 on the ESP V. One may think that because its a King V style it will be neck heavy, well it is not at all. It is very balanced, and it sounds great. I bought one and so far it is fulfilling all of my expectations and more. Earvana compensated nut keeps this thing in tune forever, after stretching the strings i havent had to tune it and its been about 3 weeks now. String-thru and set neck, this guitar has monster sustain. the pickguard doesnt look as bad in person than in the picture, i personally dont mind. Inside it has plenty of room to add another battery to do the 18v EMG mod. So far i have not had any problems with this, the only thing id like to see in the future is a non finished neck, this finished neck hasnt hindered my playing but id much rather have an unfinished one. I picked this guitar because i wanted a King V shape, not an RR, without a floyd without buying a KV2 seeing as that is 2k. This guitar at 700 bucks is an awesome deal.

The Gibson Reverse Flying V!!11!!1one!11!

Just kidding... I think the classic Gibson Flying V's are the best, but the Jackson King V is pretty cool if you got to have the sharp edges!
