I have been playing for a while and Iwanted to get a new guitar ad was looking at the razorback explosion, mainly because I want 24 frets. But, when I look at the prices for these 24 fret guitar that suposed to be great, my jaw drops. The one I like the most is $1,100 dollars and I want to know is that worth it?

i would say its worth it. I've tried an ml and it seemed very comftourble, and it comes with great pickups. But that guitar only has 22 frets, unless your looking at another one because im lookin at this one

Because All of them are handmade, even the paintjobs are done by a single person, everything is installed by human hands, pickups to bridges, it takes awhile to make them. and they use mostly High-end equipment in all there models.

Yeah, i the dean guitar center is down here in florida, and i took the tour biggrin.gif

Floating trem bridges aren't for everyone. Tons of people love them, but then again alot of people don't like having to actually fiddle around with tools on thier guitars, so they don't like them.
If you don't want to tool around on your guitar, and don't want to have to adjust and set things up yourself, don't get a floyded guitar. Fixed bridges are pretty much just string it, tune it, and play it. You barely need any tech knowledge at all to handle a fixed bridge, you can also change tunings on the fly. It's all about personal taste and preferance man. Actually, alot of things are lol.
