so im planning on picking up a schecter c1-fr sometime soon. but as im lookin around drumcity guitarland, i saw a jackson professional DK2L in transparent blue. it looked to be a decent guitar. humbucker and 2 single coils, i only use the bridge, so thats fine. so is the schecter still the better choice? or is the jackson better? i play metal, and i want a nice FR.

i own both schecter and jackson, my opinions


schecter-
-heavier (some are freakin bricks)
-slightly thicker neck
-warmer/denser tone
-pretty dang reliable

jackson-
-the best licenses floyds i know of (besides schaller/gotoh)
-lightweight
-usually have a great tone
-very versatile


i like my jackson MUCH better, i only use the schecter for drop tuning.

Jackson gets my vote,my DK2 series is my workhorse 6 string and I'd be lost without it.Also,real Duncan pups destroy Duncan Designed pups,and the LFR on the Jackson is bound to be better.

well actually, i meant to say the c1-fr hellraiser. my bad...

nd the hellraiser is $899, and the jackson is about $700. so i can afford both.
