yesterday I made a thread about getting a Kelly or Xiphos but judging on the feedback I'm thinking I'm gonna get a Kelly but then I stumbled across this on the Allan's website

this was the one i tried at the store

the only difference is the color which I would be willing to put out the extra $100 for and the dess eerie has detonator pick ups my question is are they any good compared to the jazz and JB that come in the crimson swirl (they didnt have one in the store but I would order in)

so what do you guys think

i like neither paint job, but the one that says "PRO" is probably better, just a guess tho

Crimson Swirl
It looks cooler and the pickups are pretty versatile

EDS looks better, but because of the SD's the Crimson Swirl gets it.

ha c'mon man... you should know better than that-

Anyway- get the crimson swirl Kelly- it has real Seymour Duncan pups in it. The invaders are super high output pickups (look here for more info http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/electric/humbucker/progressive/sh8_invader/) while the Jazz and JB combo is much more versatile. I have a JB in my soloist, and it is a sweet sounding pickup, even for the bridge position. I personally love it. I've played invaders and they just aren't my cup of tea. I think with the Jazz and JB you will not be disappointed.

The Detonator is an imported version, or "Duncan Performer" version of the USA Invader.

I have a trans black Jackson KE3.
Has the exact same specs as the crimson swirl one except it has a flame maple veneer.

The JB is the best bridge humbucker I've played, it can be a bit twangy when played clean but that's what you've got the Jazz in the neck for.

The Jazz is also a great pickup, does smooth lead stuff for metal really well (imo it could be better but it is in no way bad!, still a great pickup) and has a really nice clean tone.

So far they're my favourite set of humbuckers (my favourite pickups are actually Lace Sensor golds, yum yum!), I think I would like something with a bit more output for in a neck pickup but I'm still very satisfied with the Jazz.
