I scored a barely used mint condition ESP LTD Xtone off Ebay last night for $335...its in the dark cherry flame and EMG's.

Now on the other hand I have a Jackson DK2T in Crimson Swirl laying around.

Which of the two is a better axe? I am considering selling the Jackson since I got the ESP now, but I dont know.


Any thoughts?
More gear laying around then I know what to do with, and still buying crap.

Why don't you just keep both.

Jackson DK2T Destroys that guitar, but i believe the Xtone is an acoustic? so depends if you want an acoustic over a really nice electric or not..

The LTD is an electric, and I am not sure which one I like better. The LTD has active EMG's versus the Jackson's passive Duncans.

Anyone have any good experience with the LTD Xtone?

Well, give me a second to pick up my DK2T and my Xtone and play them for a while to figure out which one I like best, and I'll get back to you about what you should think.

Wait, no.

You do that. That's your thing.

Why sell either?

It's been my experience that when you sell gear, you get money.

Then you spend the money on other things, often NOT more gear.

Then you don't have the money OR the gear...

If I wasn't training with the Corp's (and possibly going to the sandbox) and not over 600 miles from my guitars I would pick them up and see which one I like the best, but you know gotta do what Uncle Sam says .

SO I ask if anyone has experience with either axe and see what people think about them. I know my Jackson is nice but I have never played the Xtone before.

If the wifey lets me keep it, I will but she was like "another one?" I thought you were getting an amp blah blah blah...

im hoping she lets me keep it, just 30 days until I can compare the 2 axes finally

Keep both or whichever one you like more. There's absolutely no way for anyone but you to have an accurate answer to this question.

You gotta out last her man... just tuck one away and let her forget about it... My wife used to gripe like that too... she eventually just gave up... Now I've got 6 guitars, 3 amps and a boatload of pedals...

I'm in a band and we gig.. so now the only questions I get every once in a while is "You paid for all that gear in the garage yet?"...

I like lowish-end ESP more than Jackson. Jackson makes nicer 2k+ guitars though, new.

IDK, keep what you like.

Do you have THREE H/H guitars now?

Good god man, get some soapbars or SOMETHING.
