I play mostly metal and I have recently joined a hardcore/metal band but this decision is really killing me. I am really not sure if I should bother with a floating trem all over again or not. Which guitar do you believe would be the wisest investment?
#2
i can vouch for the PRS, fantastic guitar.

If you're switching tunings a lot, you should probably go for the Jackson. If you're staying in relatively the same tuning most of the time, you could get both. Really just depends on what you want. I've played the PRS and it's great; I really liked it. Haven't played the Jackson, but I've looked it up before and it would definitely be the Jackson I would get if I were to buy one.

A lot of player swear by that jackson sls model, and the hardtail bridge will make you life easier for fast drop tuning

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.

I say the Jackson

I hate floating trems with a passion, but I loved the Torero when I played it. Plus, you can always hardtail it by blocking the trem if you decide you don't want/use/need it.

THe Jackson is the better guitar, objectively. You're getting more for your money with the Jackson and the overall quality is higher. But the PRS has a trem, if those are your thing. So that's what it comes down to really. How much you value having a trem vs generally better quality.

^ +1

though if you really want a trem you can get that with jackson too- the sl3mg, i think, which is more or less teh same thing with an frt-x000.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

How did you narrow down to those two guitars? They're pretty different beasts. What with one having a trem and the other not, and all. You need to figure out if you want a trem or not. We can't tell you that.

Besides that... the SLS is frickin sick.
