i was looking at both of these and wondering which you guys think is better for a hard rock sound. i think the jackson looks better and since its cheaper it might have worse pickups so i can always switch them for EMG passives.
EMG passives are a no go zone. The active is great but the other big brands (Seymour, Dimarzio) do passive pickups SO much better.
i like the rg better, ive tryed em both and the ibanez seems better quality. Dont go with emg passives. go for some dimarzio evolution pups
