    Eh. The "POINTY METAL GUITAR" aspect mixed with Zakk style block inlays make for one "Ehh, I'll pass" type of guitar to me. I'd rather have a Hamer Vector.

    Who knows. Maybe. That or it's completely pointless and just there for looks. (Aside from anchoring the pickups, that is.)

    I really wanted to like the Scott Ian V but the inlays just ruined it. They’re more normal sized on the Custom Shop version but I still didn’t look quite right. I probably would have bought one if it had sharkfins or even dots. At least they didn’t put the awful AT headstock on like the KV2T though.

    I actually love everything you guys hate about it. :lol: The big '67-style pickguard, the block inlays... I do wonder why they went for block inlays, though? Scott Ian's Gibson V (supposedly the basis for this guitar) only had regular dot inlays.

    Vector's are based on the '58 V. Reason I like the Ian V is because it's based on the '67, which I prefer. :shrug:

    I'm not totally sure if I'll even get the V, though. :lol: I've heard mixed things about modern import Jacksons. IF I got a Jackson, I'd probably get some kinda MiJ one.

    So many V choices that don't require %80 pick guard tops but hey, at least you have a Hickey ya lucky SOB.

    you already replied to your own question


    I mean, unless there was a special edition, sig, or custom, Gibson Vs come with dots. So he prob didnt had an option, now he does

    I kinda want to get a cheap Squire for the body, a decent Fender Strat type neck, locking tuners, typical Strat tremolo, a Duncan 59 or DiMarzio Super Distortion, single volume, etc. and paint it like Eddie did with the Frankenstrat and Bumblebee. Not a replica like everyone else does, but just something along those lines.

    EDIT: I'm kinda thinking maybe green and red if I do this. Then I can add some of my love of horror films to the guitar.

    More focused than ever to get that RG752 but then come the 70s Lawsuit Ibbys again...

    I used to care if these are bolt-ons (usually will pass until a good set neck version comes along) but now I don't care anymore. I just want one of these.

    I don't even like pink guitars and I'd rock the hell out of that pink sparkle Aries.
