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.

Jackson RR3 or Jackson RR1 . The edwards you only buy in japan I think... And the alexi's one only have one pickup...

yeah the esp alexi sig's only have the bridge pickup ... to be honest im not really aware of any Randy Rhoads model guitars with a floyd and the 24 frets

best bet would be an RR1 or RR3 but again, with those you get the 22 fret neck

out of curiosity, why the need for a neck pickup? You meant bridge right, or is this more for a rounded solo-tone?

ah crap i missed the bit about the neck pickup.

I'd have thought the handiest thing would be an rr1/3 and convert to emg's. or else go custom build.

He wants a neck pickup, so that rules out the laiho model. But the rest yeah, ESP and Edwards make RRVs with HH configs (I think they call them SVs?).

EDIT: Oh, forget, everything I said was pointed out already.

yeah i want the neck pickup for solos, and im not keen on cutting down two frets and then buying two EMGs. I rather have it all in one thanks

EDIT: Yep, thats the guitar im looking for... though its a bit pricey

go with the ESP sv standard. Better than the alexio rip-off the sv has neck pickup with it.

rhandy roads > alexfaghead

the problem is, is that jackson banned esp (u.s.a *cough*) to distrubute this machine to the states so its basically japan only or europe. Good luck.

the problem is, i live in Australia. Billy Hyde is the only recognized Jackson guitar dealer in Melbourne, and i'm not sure where to get ESP's. I don't want to buy online as well.

The SV looks twice the price of the RR24 =/

Im starting to think twice now. Will the extra neck pickup really help my sound?

Also, above user, what do you mean by jackson banned esp from distributing the guitar?

There is no such thing as a V with 24 frets, both pickups and a floyd rose. The nearest thing is to get the RR24.

Solution? Don't get a V, it will be cheaper, it will have everything you need and you can even use it sitting down.

And yes, the neck pickup is very usefull.

what's the ESP SV then.

TS wants a V. You can play a V whilst sitting down, put the lower horn between your legs in a classical-esque position.

depends on what pickup you have there. putting 2 EMG 81s in a guitar doesnt give a lot of variety, so you might as well not have the extra pickup.

(I'm not the above user but whatever.)
Because the designs are so similar jackson got a court order preventing ESP from selling the SV model in the States. THe court order didnt apply to the rest of the world so it can be bought everywhere except the USA.

The RR1. You could forget the floyd, and get the RR5.. It's the same price of the RR24. Or save, and buy a RR1

My friend the fact that you live in Austrailia makes finding a Jackson RR 24 fret with a HH combination so much easier. let me introduce you to Jackson stars.

They're a Japanese Jackson shop which produce regular Jackson models with a number of variations. I believe this is exactly what your looking for. They may be a more expensive but well worth it.
Heres two sites I've heard were great for ordering from.
http://www.ishibashi-music.com/ and http://www.guitarjapan.com

Sorry man but the RR1 and 5 don't have 24 frets.

EDIT: By the way, the prices on the Jackson Stars site are the list prices so ordering from the two other site should be cheaper. And if you do buy one of those axes you damn well better post some pics.
