BSB! BSB! BSB! BSB! etc

The neck profile is a bit different so try them both and see which one you're comfortable with.

You're going to buy eight of each? damn - u must have some serious money.

Seriously, having played both, I'd say go with the BSB. It's much more aggressive. The DBK feels like a toy to me.

Two different animals... I love the DBK for the more aggressive music. It has a smaller neck for speed and the pups fit the bill better than the evo's. The BSB has the bigger neck and sounds more universal as opposed to one style. Many teachers use them for this purpose around this area.

Painted differently? I seriously doubt that.

I would definitely try them both out before you buy...to each their own right?

well thats just the problem because I live in Finland and there are not too many guitar shops here that sell BSBs so it might be hard to try that one out and I will probably have to order it from Germany. DBS is easy to find. Is there some guitar that has almost the same "feel" as BSB (BackStreetBoys ) has ?

I think VWH and VSBL are pretty close. Levytukku in Helsinki has them in stock.

I have BSB and it is great.

I got mine from there some 3-4 years ago.

If you wanted to compare necks of BSB and DBK, VWH and VSBL have the same neck as BSB and they also have the DBK in stock there so you can compare them.

I don't think there is much difference between sound of VWH and BSB although I've heard BSB sounds more "raw".

They don't make them anymore. The price tag was 12100mk (~2000€). I got hard shell case also and gave a LesPaul Studio in change and cannot remember how much I ended up paying.
