So I already have a Schecter C-1 Elite diamond series and I'm really wanting a flying V just because they look so sick. Well I purchased a dimebucker humbucker and am planning on installing that soon. My question is would you guys thing it'd be worth it to get a jackson? Cause I've seen this:

and I think it's pretty ballin. So idk I need some advice. Oh yeah money isn't too much of a problem but I really don't wanna spend more then like $800

That's a nice guitar, but I would really advise in not putting the dimebucker in it. The JB is much, much better.

i had the dimebucker and I wouldnt recommend replacing a good SD with it. also, try going used and getting a higher end jackson. as a personal owner I can say theyre awesome. I got mine used and never regretted it once. check this out

save up a little more, you wont regret it

also theres a guy selling a RR5 for $600 who im talkin to, talk to him and pick that up if youre lookin at the RR guitars. heres his profile (http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/psmile87/). send him a PM and let him know youre interseted.
Stay thirsty my friends...

You could EASILY get a used RR5 for $300-400 and then put whatever pickups you want in it. If you really want an FR, the RR3 is a solid choice, but I think you get loads more bang for your buck with a used RR5.

ah okay thanks! Just a few more questions. Whats a JB? Jackson.....? And SD I'm guessing would be seymour duncan? Heh sorry I'm not too technical fancy. I just play what sounds good. And what do you mean by DKMG and OHSC? heh sorry again.

JB is the bridge pickup in the RR3.

gotcha. would you say that if i got the rr3 and put the dimebucker in that, that'd be a better idea?

dkmg is a jackson model its the dinky with emgs and a floyd about the same price great value plays well but its not a V so yea and a JB is the bridge pick up in the rr3 and most common duncan way better then the dimebucker

Okay. you guys have been great. I appreciate all the feedback as I don't really know much about the hardware of it all and I don't wanna be ripped off when looking for something sweet.

Take the dimebucker out of the equation and it'd be a good plan.The dimebucker can't live up to the Duncan JB in my opinion.People complain that the JB isn't as high output as other distortion pups but what you get with the JB is a warm and organic tone and versatility.The JB can do death metal and really high gain,you just have to pair it with the right amp and EQ settings.

JB>Dimebucker. Return the Dimebucker, seriously. Not that great of a pickup.

eBay usually has good deals. I just saw an RR3 go for $430.
