The positives with that guitar is that it looks awesome.

The disadvantages are that it's made in India, has a cheap basswood body and a Floyd Rose Special bridge.

Would i get one? Possibly. I like Jackson's and despite the problems that particular guitar has, it's still a good guitar for the money. If i came across one that played perfectly and i didn't want to go used, i'd buy it.

the floyd rose special is totaly decent. I'm more concerned about the cheap basswood, but with active pick ups, the difference would not be big. If you pout passive in it, the type of wood will make a way bigger difference.

I dont know for the sustain either, if it's good or not

This is a myth. Wood makes a difference in a guitar with active pickups, they do not make all guitars sound the same.

ah i didnt think about the basswood, i could sell my current guitar and get this, what do you think? http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/esp-ltd-deluxe-mh-1000-electric-guitar-with-emgs

it seems perfect but i heard the neck is thicker than jacksons and i am not a big fan of the blade pickup switch

Get that guitar instead.

I'd hardly call the neck being 'thicker' either. Its still a very thin neck.

Having a thin neck doesn't make you a better player either.

No but it makes way less difference than with passives

I don't know about you, but i can hear a significant difference between guitars with the same active pickups.

I had a jackson dinky and my friend had a schecter hellraiser both with 81/85 and they sounded nothing alike.. his was just muddy and hot.. mine was much more articulate and cleaned up better

Get an M-1000 if you want a thinner neck. http://www.worldmusicsupply.com/Esp-Ltd-M1000-Flamed-Top-See-Thru-Black-Electric-Guitar.html?gclid=COb75sLvoLQCFQ_hQgodP0YAJg

Personally, I don't think the Thin U (the neck on the MH) is that thin. It's quite a bit thicker than my Ibanez's neck. I'd say it's slightly closer to Gibson on a scale of Ibanez to Gibson (like a 6 out of 1-10).

+1. Even guitars with the same woods, I can hear differences with an 81/60 set.

Basswood is not a terrible wood, it's just softer so it tends to ding and dent more easily than most others.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

Hang on, this guitar body is actually made of mahogany, as a press release/email comment from Fender/Jackson confirmed. Now you have a mahogany body, through-body maple neck and rosewood fretboard, active EMGs and a Floyd Rose Special, all in one package. The Floyd Rose Special can be replaced with an OFR anyway. Neat package, isn't it? The only likely letdown is that all the wood may be sourced locally.
