You can play any kind of music on any guitar really, but all these seem especially geared to metal type music. I bet all their pickups are super hot for one thing (not positive though)

Just at a quick glance of them all, I would say the Ironbird?

All the guitars you mentioned are equal. Flip a coin, or several coins. Hope this hleps. Now go chase parked cars.

I have both kinds of guitars - Fender AND Gibson.

The following is Chuck King's reply from the Pickups forum:


"Obviously, those are all, shall we say, non-traditional body shapes. Now, body shape doesn't really have anything to do with what you can play on a guitar---if you show up for, say, a jazz or oldies gig with a pointy metal guitar, you may get a cool reception, but you can play any kind of music on any guitar. BUT, since those are all aimed at the metal market, they probably have really high-output, overwound humbuckers in them, which may not sound that good for other styles of music. That's not guaranteed---I have a B.C. Rich Acrylic Mockingbird and I was very pleasantly surprised by how good the stock pickups sounded. They're higher output than some of my other guitars but they still have some dynamics to them.

I don't know anything about stock Dean pickups. That Mustaine sig model has Duncans, which I would generally expect to be better than no-name stock pickups, but again, they might not be the most versatile."

I'd advise going to a store to test a few (or all) of those out; some guitars are more awkward to play than others, and if it's uncomfortable to play, you won't want to pick it up nearly as often. When I was starting out, I had massive GAS for Les Pauls - turns out I find 'em terrible uncomfy to play when sitting down, which steers me in more of a strat/tele direction. Since that kind of issue is totally dependant on personal preference, it's up to you to actually put your hands on the guirat(s) in question.

I'm resisting the urge to poke fun at pointy "metal" guitars...

Of those you listed, I'd go with the Mustaine VMNT with the Duncan Mustaine pickups. Lower priced Deans aren't the best made, but the VMNT is around $1200 and is a good one. The neck is fast. I almost got one but ended up with the ESP LTD Alexi-600 instead. Why? I thought it was better made.

The last one has a FR trem and a Duncan Blackout. BTW there is a special edition of the LTD Alexi-600SE at Bellevue American Music that's black w/ pink stripe. It's bad assed. It also has a satin finish maple neck-through just like the more expensive custom shop one. Mine is white w/black stripe and I got it a week before the black/pink one came out.

Why this one? It's more a traditional look. It's metal because Alexi Laiho of Children of Bodom plays it. We all get older and the style is classic now because it's patterned after the Jackson RR. Well made and comfortable. The 2009 model is $1250. The one at Bellevue American Music is a 2008 and is $950 new.

If you go with the Dean, go with the VMNT in Metallic Silver. You can thank me in five years.

Speaking as an owner of both brands, if it's versatility your interested in, I would go for a Dean. I agree with Ax Murder though, these are some very odd body shapes so unless you want to be stuck playing while standing up all the time.....

Having said that, I nominate myself for president of the "pointy guitar fan club" !!!

congratulations on your first guitar and please let us know which one you choose !!

Pickups and tuners are swappable, and easily.

You need to be focusing more on "Is the guitar comfortable to play?" - that's the first thing to look out for, pickups can be swapped.
