Alright guys, I need to choose between a LTD Viper 50 and a Jackson DXMG (used). The Viper comes wiht LH-150s and the Jackson comes with EMG HZs. Which is pickup set is better? whats the difference?
I would hope the EMGs are better, but I've not heard good things about their passive pickups.
Jackson X series > LTD X-50 IMO.
I have a DXMG and it's amazing.

DEFINETELY the Jackson. The LTD is nice, and I'm not a fan of EMG's active ones, but the HZs are extremely nice. The LTD is more of a beginners guitar, while the Jackson is a really good guitar. Probably more of a metal guitar, while the LTD cann handle stuff like AC/DC.
Jackson by far - it's MIJ, for pete's sake.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
