I have always loved the look of the Flying V type of guitars (Flying V, Jackson King V, Jackson Rhoads, etc...). The other day I went to Guitar Center to play a few. I played a Jackson King V (bottom end model) & Rhoads V (bottom end model). Those were the closest to what I'm looking for that they had. I liked the Rhoads V better of those two, it wasn't nearly as bulky, especially when seated. Playing seated didn't bother me at all, I find the classical position comfortable. It was a little surprising that access to the 24th fret wasn't as easy as I anticipated. I was able to adjust my left hand & it seemed to work ok, just something to get used to. Not that I'm a frequent visitor to the 24th fret though. I should point out that my hands are probably slightly smaller than average.
I prefer 24 frets & either fixed bridge or string through (no tremolo). My price limit is @ $750. I might be able to bend on the price if I fall in love with something.
Here's what I'm considering... (in no particular order)
- Jackson RR24XT Rhoads X Series
- Jackson KVXT King V X Series
- Schecter Blackjack ATX V-1
- ESP LTD V-300
If anybody can provide any insight I would greatly appreciate it. I don't know a thing about Schecter guitars at all. It's not exactly who I think of first when thinking of a metal guitar. But their specs look good for the price.
Thanks for any help!

I own one guitar, an Ibanez with Floyd Rose tremolo. I am considering getting another guitar & making it my "drop tune" guitar. For those of you that do drop tuning in addition to standard tuning, what do you do? Would it make more sense to get the second guitar without a tremolo to make quick tuning easier? I'm thinking of a Flying V type, either Jackson or Dean. I am not interested in retuning my Floyd Rose back & forth. Thanks!

Is it ok to play bass through a guitar amp? Not loud or anything, just home practice kinda stuff.
Said amp is Crate FXT120 with 2-12" speakers.

Ben Higgins sent me a nice welcome & suggested I introduce myself. I was in a band in high school & we played a few local shows. We had a pretty good following & were a good band but not necessarily good musicians. My playing was fair at the time & I am now getting back into playing after a 20 year break. I forgot how hard this thing was to learn & play.
My main influences are (in no particular order) Hendrix, Randy Rhoads, Zakk Wylde, George Lynch, Tony Iommi, Dimebag Darrel, all Megadeth guitarists.
My main band influences are Megadeth, Slayer (great rhythm, wish leads were better), Black Sabbath, 80's metal, old Metallica, Pantera, Iron Maiden.
I hope to learn a lot here.
