Between DEAN ML XM and Epiphone Les Paul which one is better for metal stuff??
The amplifier or processor that you are gonna use.
in low end guitars
mostly the amp and the effects come useful in the sound
yeah. Although the DEAN has dual humbuckers so it'd be better than an epiphone. But an epi with dual humbucks will do just as well.
i'll be ordering online...and the epiphone one has a dual humbucker...so as i wont get the real feel of the instrument b4 buying thats y asking which is better.....
I got an Epihpone LP standard II (dual humbucker, 15k) 3 weeks ago and am loving it. Came just inside my budget. Hate the processor though (Digitech RP90). I tried Bed of Razors and it sounded good. Infact I saw three Epiphone models all with dual humbuckers.
Dean didn't really fit my budget.
Dude the Dean ML XM costs around 15k and the vendetta xmt is even cheaper.....Even u get Jackson JS35RR at around 18k but as far as i have heard from people a v shaped guitar is very uncomfortable to practise...Any idea guys?
I'd say for an extended budget go for jackson js35rr or js35ke.... Ke being an explorer is much more comfortable.... I 've had a good expirience with the rhoads type v, the speed v and the les pauls.... V can be hard to play in the beginning since most guitarist rest their guitar on their right leg... But in the v, placing the v groove on the right leg feels as if placing a double cut on the left... Try playing your own guitar that way.... Standing posture has no difference at all.... Wether a v or any other shape.... But still i'd say les paul and explorers are still better than any other shape.....
And as far as a good sound goes.... Metal requires two things.... A nice heavy distorted sound with an amp able enough to make it sound good and not fuzzy... Even with a low end guitar you can play the best of metal songs if you have these two good..... A good guitar only adds to ease of playability at the difficult runs like solos or tougher riffs....
