I personally wouldn't go for either, but ouyt of the two Gus G.

My reasoning is that a lot of people who play metal like active pick ups, which arent in the Gus G (The SD are sick and are really versatile though).

I don't like the other because it has only 1 pick up, which limits the sound a lot. Plus it isnt even an 85/81 and it has a floyd rose (which are a pain in the ass).

Sorry I couldn't help, but I'm gonna pick out a signature model that I would like, just for fun. Probably this one: http://espguitars.com/guitars_padge.html

I don't like ESP signature models much, but I love the other ones by ESP/LTD.

Yes I've played an ESP/LTD many times, such as Alexi-600, Kirk Hammet sig, Willie Adler sig, Eclipse II etc. I'm not just randomly selecting guitars, I've researched it and stuff

well all mine play the same and all the ones ive played seem to play alike so pick a shape and a pickup configuration you like...then thats the one

best pick up is EMG 60N 81B
just go for a 1000 deluxe model rather than a sig
cost less and play just as good

this is absolutely, 100% correct.
For example, Dave Mustaine has a signature coffee mix.

Screw Jackson! My friends got a King V, the one that's about $500 USD and my LTD V-200 kicks the CRAP out of it. He loved it when I brought it over to record at his house today. Get the RL-600, its so simple, yet so nice. Those HZs sound nice too, i love em. I've got them in a few guitars and I swear by them. Plus, its got a Floyd Rose, so you can have more fun with it :P

The Gus G is the better guitar for your needs, easier to use and more variable sound.


Although, I too suggest you look at the padge sig. Litterally the coolest inlay of all time.

That will be the Jackson KVX10, which is X-series. X-series are the second lowest end guitars in the Jackson shop, so please do not see that guitar as the 'standard Jackson'.

I'd probably go for the Gus G sig for pure versatility (two pickups, hard tail body, passive pickups etc.). They both do look cool though.

Which model are you getting? The low end LTD version, high end LTD version or the ESP one?
