Im looking at both of these guitars. im saving up money now. should i get the viper or rr5? I play alotta metal and hard rock. ive got $630 saved up right now. I like the v, but im kinda loyal to ESP LTD. I play through a Randall RX120 Full Stack.
RR5, my reason for saying this is ESPs quality has went WAY down in the last year. I've played ESPs recently and it seems there guitars dont fit the hole like they used too.
you know what i'd say.
Jackson RR5 ivory w/ EMG 81/85
Jackson DX6 w/ SD Distortion & Dimarzio Super Distortion
Fender Starcaster Sunburst
Mesa/Boogie DC-3
Johnson JT50 Mirage
Ibanez TS-9
Morley Bad Horsie 2
Boss CE-5

ISP Decimator
Boss DD-6
Korg Pitchblack
i have the viper. unbelievable, and im an esp fan, but the RR5 has a tremolo. so if ur a lead guitarist whos gna use a tremolo, get the RR5. otherwise, viper.
