I second the motion. I own a 370DX and it's amazing. I also agree with what most people here said. Try out every guitar in the store shamelessly before you buy one. Hey that's what I did. I was a complete pain in the ass. I tried 30 or so guitars (including a couple of $3000 Jacksons to see what the difference was) before I asked them to order my 370DX into the store and I bought it 2 weeks later. Don't be afraid to try out all the guitars you want (that's why you should not tell the salesperson what your budget is...so you'll get a chance to try out more expensive guitars). You have that right as a customer but be discreet and polite about it and make inquiries if necessary.

I played both guitars through both amps and although the Kelly sounded better through my 25W amp (better pickups), they both sounded like **** through the 10W amp. So I decided to get the 370 and the better amp and it sounds pretty kickass.
