Mick thompson signature NJ VS dime 2-sthm

Hi!
Recently (1 year) I changed a guitar Igot for a BC rich NJ warlock Mick Thompson signature with seymour duncan SH-6 in the bridge and an emg-HZ in the neck.

Now I want to sell (or change)it, but a "friend" wants to change our guitars. THe other (the one I could have) is the DIME 2 sthm . It is 2 years old. I only know that.

http://www.audiotronics.es/product....productid=24410

What should I do, which guitar is better, I think the MIck thompson now is better, but I like more the Dimes body shape, and Iīve readed that the dime guitar, is VERY NECKY HEAVY. I canīt play that guitar because he lives very far from me.

Should I change my guitar with him???
Thanks

Yeah, no real contest there. 20 years from now the Dime signature will likely be worth some serious kiznash and the Slipnut special will be worth jack shit.

well personally, i would go with the dime guitar even tho i am a huge slipknot fan. ALL bc rich signature guitar are fucking shit. theyre nothing compared to the customs that the actual artists use. ok, ino thats the same with alot of other companies sigs, but the bcrich sigs are really bellow the standard of other brands.

but i really dont think that you should dis-own the guitar just because you dont like mick thomson. that would be fucking queer and pathetic, especially if your happy with the guitar itself.

well at the end of the day its up to you, i say you should try out the dime guitar to see if it really is neck heavy in your opinion and wether you feel comfortable playing it. if it is comfortable and to your liking, then go for it, but if you dont feel happy with it, then look for another guitar if you really are keen to get rid of your NJ.

my opinion...go for the dime

its not like slipknot sound "shitty" because of their gear. that really is a poor excuse. ok i know that alot of you hate slipknot, and thats cool, but you cant just say "oh, it must be shit because slipknot use it". and doesnt their sound depend on a lot of things like amp settings, amps, tunnings, effects and electronics and shit like that...? alot of other bands use some of the same gear of slipknot and manage to make good music aswell, i really dont think you can just assume that something is crap because a certain band uses it.

lol, sorry to go off on one, im rather sensitive

and you're also rather homoerotic.

normally i would say the BC over everything....but in this case, i'll recommend the dime on it's value alone. i reckon you'll make the right choice though dude.

I donīt know. I like the DIm emore too, but the warlock is a bit better, I think. And its newer.
" is better the bad known that the..."

Iīm not sure what Iīll do, because I NEED someone who has the DIme 2 sthm, or the 2st, or the 332,.... I need to know how good or bad is it and if its neck is that heavy.

Holy shit!

P.D. Continue putting your opinions. Thanks

Any guitar thats' upper strap-pin is below the 12th fret (Flying V, Dime, Les Paul (?), will be neck-heavy, but if its inline with the 12th fret, it'll stay put..... obviously the dimes' isn't inline with the 12th, and the size of headstock won't help the weight issue, but it shouldn't be a problem imo.

Okay my view.

The Dick 7 sig Nj:
Good material in the body, 24 frets, a good pickup in the bridge already. Ugly inlay, bolt on if that disturbs you any.

The Dime:
Good material, set neck I reckon which is also in mahogany. Floyd, but its a licensed though. Washburn pickups , 22 frets (nothing bad said about 22 fretters just is that I like 24 fretters more.)

Bullshit.

I've got a Jackson Ke3 and a custom designed thingy, and they've got their upper strap-pins at 19th and 21st fret, respectively, and they stay right where I put them. Most electrics built have the neck-to-body joint above the 16th fret.

If a guitar is neck heavy it can usually be sorted out by a good ass leather strap. Anyways a mate of mine has a dime 333 camo sig guitar, the same one as this
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....ssPageName=WDVW
Its a fairly good guitar. His, is not neck heavy so whoevers been saying there neck heavy is wrong. I love the body shape, its very comfortable and it looks killer. The only things i dont like, are that the floyd rippoff is fucking shit, the pickups are fairly weak and the neck is a bit wide for my liking. But the floyd and pickups can be changed so it dont matter about them, and the neck is good but its just i prefer less wide necks due to having small hands. Overall its a kickass guitar. Much beeter than that sig warlock. I hate bcrichs, definetely not worth the money

I'd try to play the guys guitar, or find a similar guitar somewhere, and see what you think first.
