Good day, all. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Basically, I'm in the market for a new guitar... sort of. I need a new amp first, but I still have my eye on guitars. I play metal almost exclusively, and need a high-gain tone. I plan on getting a Randall T2, just for the warm tone and bite.

I already own a Schecter Solo-6 Radiation, which is a great guitar. It sounds wonderful, but I want a guitar with a Floyd. Originally, I looked at the Alexi signature ESP, though I didn't like the shape. I do, however, like the simplicity of one pickup and one knob. So I arrived at the Jackson RR24. It looks brutal and the sound tests match.

I was fairly certain I'd reached a final decision, until earlier this month. Jackson recently announced the X Series. I found a Rhoads shaped guitar with a Floyd, albeit with 2 pickups and multiple knobs.

Also, the X series is substantially cheaper. When looking at the specs, I couldn't actually find too many differences between the two.


Could anyone help me out here? Would the RR24 be worth the extra couple hundred dollars? I'm still not sure I understand the differences.

The ESP Alexi signatures have no bass in them what-so-ever I believe. Perfect for playing CoB, but I'm fairly sure that's about it.

Sadly I can't say much other than that.

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.
