    fuck
    I've been happy with my Amp1 Iridum, but man... You don't know how long and how badly I've wanted a Stealth.

    I sadly had to sell my Solar A2.6W due to unexpected expenses. I decided that my next guitar I'm saving up for will be a V. I gave up V guitars years ago for convenience reasons (v's = huge hardcases, easy to accidently bump anywhere, etc.) years ago but I'm craving for one right now, I always was a V guy. I want a main guitar for my brutal death side project in Drop A.

    My two favorite options:

    [​IMG]
    Solar V1.6R Artist LTD

    Pros:

    - Looks absolutely badass with the reversed headstock and the maple fretboard
    - Had experience with 2 Solars, loved them. Both my former A2.6W and my E2.6C I still have play fantastic.
    - Evertune bridge is probably better for Drop A in 25.5" scale
    - Comes in a nice gigbag

    Cons:

    - More expensive including import fees to Canada
    - No experience with Evertune bridges, not sure I will like it
    - Duncan Solars sound fine but I do prefer nastier sounding pickups
    - I believe Solar QC is still fine, but the recent reports of issues do raise some concerns

    Dean Vengeance V

    Pros:

    - Cheaper
    - Fishman active pickup
    - Dean slim C and Dave Mustaine slim D neck profiles are among my favorites
    - Both Deans I owned handled low tuning very well
    - Simple bridge and control layout

    Cons:

    - Won't come in a case, will have to pay extra for an enormous one. The one I had for my Razorback V barely fitted in the backseat of my car and was a pain to carry around.

    I don't mind Solar headstocks but idk... seems kinda "off" with the other aesthetics of this particular guitar... at least in pics. That Dean on the other hand... fuckin sick tip to tip.

    Fender has been killing it lately... I'm still tempted to buy this one once we're though the house buying process.
