So I want to buy this bad boy for 330 euros.It's a Jackson KVXT with a hard case and they look like this.
Is it worth the price? When I come to check it out, what should I look for apart good feel?
Also it's rare to find a Jackson guitar in my country so it might be a good chance to get it.

Depends on what you're using it for? Personally, I know jackshit about what makes a good guitar - still playing the busted Tagima I bought back in highschool, matter of fact.

Anyway, bumping the thread for interest. To throw my 2 cents, I've played a floating-bridge Jackson at a friend's house once - it was pretty cool guitar but it untuned quite a bit if you were too rough at the whammy.

Tremolo? Get something with a fixed bridge. Tremolos are just a pain in the ass.

Work out your price range and do some homework.
I bought a Vintage V100 like 7 years ago and recently had the heads replaced. Guy who did it said it sounded great, which is a strong compliment when you consider the guy has like $5k worth of guitars and I paid less than 300 for mine.

Honestly, Jackson guitars are shit. But if it's something you really want due to its rarity where you are, go for it. But don't expect the quality to be good.

DESU I bought my only guitar (Washburn WI64) a few years ago second-hand for ~400 euros, and still the only difference between it and other guitars for me is that I'm used to it.
There are plenty of great guitars out there, but my Washburn is the only thing I need.

That being said, avoid tremolos. They're a neat trick, but it isn't worth all the trouble setting it up.

So my advice is buy a Washburn (preferably Idol series, but with every series its what-you-pay-is-what-you-get) - they are versatile, pretty nice sounding, they got a twang, they got a smooth tone if you need them, and they can be hell aggressive.

I recorded this album with my Washburn WI64
