I was thinking about getting this, a jackson RR5, or...another that I don't know of yet.

Does anyone have any experience with this particular guitar? It sounds pretty nice to me

I play between the buried and me, protest the hero, THA, old 'tallica....basically metalcore, thrash, and death metal
And I'm beginning to play some blues/jazz fusion stuff too

So, does that guitar sound like it could do all that? Or if there's another that's better, let me know

Thanks in advance everybody,

You could get $1000 custom made pickups hand wired with Eric Johnsons pubic hair, and they'd still sound pretty bad through a ****ty solid state practice amp.

Really? I thought Frontmans where highly respected around here?!

Im also thinking about that, but the body is Agathis. which is a crappy wood. so look for something else./ some others in the same series are made of Basswood, which isnt the best, but its much better than Agathis.

The -400 isn't agathis, dude.

Do you not want a Floyd? I can understand if you don't, but I think they're nice to have, especially for metal...

you can get a pretty decent gibson sg for around that price range. as far as i know their almost as good all around as an LP. that guitar seems to be more for rock and metal and probably wouldn't be very good for someone that plays multiple genres like you.

I think you should get the RR5, since its a one piece, it will have a great time with talkin abuse from tuning up or down.

The LTD does look good, though I still think the RR5 wins.


Good Luck!

Yeah, the RR5 is great playing and looking,
That's also something I was looking for, something that can still sound pretty good even when detuned

The only thing I don't like about it is the price...What really makes it worth $1300? A schecter classic has real duncan's and's only like $700 or so..
