Re: Gibson V or Dean Razorback

i'd say get a Gibby... I've played both, and the gibson was a lot more comfortable. And i just liked it better overal.

If you go for the gibson, do what Ayrton said: make sure to try a few out before buying one!

Ditto...

However, due to quality issues, you have to find a nice one. Play several and pick the nice one.

I play a Gibson V and I love it. By far I'd recommend the Gibson, but I'm biased.

Re: Gibson V or Dean Razorback

It also comes down to your playing style and the type of music you'll be playing
Do you preffer 24 frets VS 22 on the flying V? do you preffer hard tail bridges to
floating trems? ask yourself those question. I like Gibsons and I have a couple flying Vs with hardtails and I play them very rarely because my style demands screaming harmonics, dive bombs, bar flutter effects etc...

I tried a Razorback once and it was lovely, and I've rarely opted for funny shaped, set neck, floydrose guitars. Lovely, though a less subtle image than the Gibson V.

The best description I was able to find was "medium tall", hope that helps.
If I remember right my Vs had short and narrow fretwire but I never had a 67 RI.
I have a friend who bought one probably 15 years ago and that has been his only guitar since so I think it's safe to say he loves them.

I guess the brownish colours of the rosewood board didn't agree with the white coulour of the V.

Re: Gibson V or Dean Razorback

i have a razor and can say i'd buy 20 before ever even thinking of touching a gibson . i think gibson quality has gone to the crapper . they are havin problems with thier neck joints and IMO just dont play that great . i was takin a lesson and they had one at the music store so i did a side by side because i was also interested in the V.

no comparison imo . my razor had a better finish , the frets were larger as well as crowned and polished better . the razor's floyd is great. the only thing i have done is change pickups and wire it up for a single volume and tone along with a kill switch .

sure my razor has a couple of chips but nothing a black sharpie wont fix

the razor has a beautiful V shaped neck wich plays like a dream , it is one of those things though , you either love it or hate it.

you can get a blemished razor or used for around 750-800 , as great as they are i wouldn't buy one new just for the fact you can get them cheaper used or blemished, but yeah i certainly look to buy another razor or maybe a CFH/DFH

Sharp points chip too easy and (if you ask me) look silly.

I like the Gibby strictly on looks over the Dean.

How about one of the new Dime Razorback V's? Like Corey from Trivium plays. Then you get the best of both worlds. Plus they are \m/ as you like.
