Well, I've come to love two Jackson guitars, and ruled out the ESP I was looking at.

The first is the WRMG Warrior, second is the LX10D Kelly.

What can you all tell me about these guitars? Are there better ones? I'd really like one of these, but can't seem to decide which.

Pros and cons of each?

What ESP were you looking at? Out of those two, I would say the Warrior.
Guitars
Agile 3100 CSB
ESP MH400 w/ Trem-Setter
Epi G-310
Applause Acoustic

Amps
1968 Fender Vibrochamp - Great amp, only $100 fixxer-upper
Line 6 Spider II

REMEMBER, ALL TONE IS SUBJECTIVE!

i never really liked the warriors, i think that they are by far the ugliest guitar that jackson has ever made, i know looks should count for a guitar too much, but when its that ugly...

thats a toughy, warriors are great to play and pretty damn cool looking, but a kelly is a sexy guitar.urrrm have to say kelly.
#8
Id definatly go with the Kelly
Ive wanted one before, but instead I settled with a Jackson Dk2
#9
Ugh, Dinky's aren't too good on the eyes IMO..

Well, which will be better for what I'll be playing?

I'll be playing sorta shred stuff, like Malmsteen, as well as classical pieces. From what I've heard, any of these guitars will handle heavy stuff also.

What's your price range?

The WRMG has EMG's 81 and 85 at bridge and neck respectively, which is pretty snazzy for metal. Trem is direct fit for OFR I think; don't quote me on that though. Alder body with Maple Veneer, it's gonna be a bright guitar.

And the Kelly... can't find it.

Perhaps look into other brands?

not really man...it probably depends on what amp you use.

Guess so, but it does add to the brightess. Plus it's got EMGs!

If you're gonna get a Jackson with a licensed Floyd Rose, test the hell out of it. I had a WRMG Warrior that went out of tune even when you didn't play it. BE VERY CAREFUL.

exactly, use it with a nice tube amp (not saying it's necesary) and you can get it to it's full potential.

Kelly > everything. The only experience I have with the KE3 is at a shop, but the trem seemed nice and the pickups were great.

The LFR on the Jacksons are great. I use mine daily and I've never had problems. Loads of people seem to say that they are useless and unreliable but it's not true.
I've played both and the Kelly seemed better. Both were alright (I don't like unusual shapes) but the Kelly seemed more powerful.
#19
what ESP were you looking at?
the 400 series are quite good guitars imo
Peavey 5150, LTD EX400BD, tubescreamer, and a whole lotta fingers

the KE3 kelly is a lovely guitar. Get one.

I'll be playing through a 6505, and I got an Epi LP standard at the moment.

So, next time I go into Long & McQuade, check out the Kelly?

What would you guys say is better?

ESP Eclipse-II VB, or the Jackson Kelly?
