I was debating between these two guitars. I play metal bands that I am influenced by are Gojira, Strapping Young Lad, Mastodon, Baroness, etc...

What do you guys think?

I've always liked the feel of Schecters better, and I think you'll get more from them for your money.

Oh god, the Jackson SCREAMS Gojira. I basically love everything you have in musical tastes. Haha. Mastodon and Baroness are my favourites man.

But I'd go with the Jackson. I prefer the passives for those sounds.

It's also a fantastically versatile guitar.

I prefer meaty mahogany bodied guitars for Mastodon and Baroness stuff. I want an old Guild S-300. Or a Les Paul Standard. Or A Yamaha SG800 or something along those lines is great for that kind of music.


But, out of those. Jackson 100%.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Well I actually own both of these guitars and I have to say if you can only afford one guitar I would go with the Schecter Hellraiser. It has amazing EMG pickups and a slightly thicker neck which really helps my rhythm playing, along with the arched body top, instead of a flat guitar. However, Jackson in my opinion is the core essence of metal guitars and I love mine.

Like a flatter, skinnier (but slightly wider) neck? Jackson. Like a fatter neck? Schecter.

Jackson, better neck

that is purley opinion, not fact -.-

if you have narrowed it down to these 2 guitars, it'd be best if you can go and try them both out, 2 different necks . . you might not like either of them
I also suggest the Schecter C-1 Blackjack ATX, pritty much exactly the same as the Hellraiser, but with Seymour Duncan Blackouts (better sounding than EMG imo), and a satin finish (on the black ones anyway), which plays rather a bit smoother than the gloss on the Hellraiser

Crickets have too much high end for my tastes. I prefer a nice beetle, lots of warm low end.

tl;dr put a beetle in your amp for superior toanz.

+1 I'd take a blackjack atx over a hellraiser any day. And its has ebony fretboard which is a plus. Blackouts are my favorite pups. But I love Jackson, the necks and the compound radius fretboard.

Ok so what I've heard so far which on would you guys choose the Jackson SLS3 or the Schecter Blackjack ATX C-1?

I guess whats the better bang for my buck? I plan on buying a Hughes and Kettner Coreblade tube amp.
#12
LOVING my Blackjack ATX C-1 in white!

The better bang for your buck is DEFINITELY the Schecter. Also, the Blackouts will be a better fit IMHO for that style of music.
#13
better bang for your buck with the schecter. i've actually heard that both companies are owned by the same dude. but in the end, its opinion. for that particular style i've metal, i'd get the schecter for sure but you never know.
