Really what is the difference between an SX guitar and an ESP standard series??
i mean if i changed the SX pickups to active EMG-81...it will be the same as an ESP guitar..right??forget about the neck and bridges i'll put a new EMG 81 pickups and i'll change the strings...
Soo what's left that make changes the sound from these 2 guitars??

what exact guitars are you trying to compare, there are many standards, and many SX's.
these are ones i looked at.

i havent heard much about SX other then their strat copies, and by just looking at these two side by side, not much in the differences, other then the SX is just liscensed, ESP is OG floyd. pickups are a huge difference. other then that, maybe some QC issiues that come with a 100 buck guitar, but who knows maybe youll get that diamond in the rough.

other then that, pick the guitar you actually like to play, not just cuz its ESP, if the SX freaking shreds and you love it, buy it! you have a guitar you actually love, and you saved 1300 bucks, then buy me a SX too with the extra money.

hope that helps

Nope. the m-II probably has better quality alder. better construction quility from esp in japan. original floyd rose= more sustain set thru neck also = more sustain overall the wiring is probably much better done to. :/ I see it between companies like this... you pay for what you get
