Not bad... but the Pickups are pretty bad, invest in a set of 60/81s (rythym), or a set of 80/81s (lead).

And it's in an ESP... ewww.

And yeah I'm assuming he wants an opinion, he's probably found this off ebay and wants it I'm assuming.

ESP Is overrated, people think they're so cheap because they price their guitars low to minimize there profits and give their customer a real price. Wrong, it's factory made Chinese half @ssed parts which means they save a crap load of money letting machines do it for them.

I'm not a huge fan of ESP. I mean some of their guitars are very original but they rely on EMG's too much if you ask me. Their woods aren't particularly amazing, unless you spend over 2000 grand and their necks are often uninspiring.
They look pretty unoriginal as well in my eyes. I prefer a guitar with either a more classic look or something different. No in-between for me thank you.
Don't get me wrong though, they are good guitars and look cool but just not for me. But you or anyone else could think differently.
If you can make a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup sound metal, not only are you more metal for doing it, but it also sounds more real and ethnic, earthy and gritty!
But if you are going to get EMG 80/81's (I suggest the 60/81's, more variety) you have to remember they are battery operated and therefore you be required you to do some routing. Not overly hard but not something you can do yourself!!!

Why did you link me to a wiki article about pickups?
And no i have played the pickups and they are decent.

Judging by your gear I'm pretty sure you haven't played much quality (except the JCM), Hzs are the absolute worst of EMGs, hence why no one ever use them and use always see companies throwing them in crappy guitars.

Lol thats like saying i havent been to a guitar store.
They are decent pickups. even if they are the lowest pickup in emgs line.
And for you to say they are not is strictly personal preferance.

And you still havent answered my question.

Oh true.
i meant ??? to the 80/81 emg pickup set. mean 85/81?
They are good enough to use.
I wouldnt judge getting that guitar solely on the guitar having not the best pups.
They do the job.

Player > amp > effects > guitar construction/materials > pickups, on the subject of tone. Contrary to popular belief, putting an active 80/81 set into your guitar will NOT turn your entire rig into a fire-breathing solo-playing crazy shreding monster.

lol i guess im more metal. the guitar im planing to get uses the seymour jazz set and i think it is way more br00tal than any EMG or active pickups i have tried. i agree it is a more "real" sound. then again im not you average mid scooper metalhead (altho i like it from time to time).

the emg 85/81 combo in my razorback is pretty awesome.
it certainly does alot better job for my metal than my telecaster does ahaha.
but my telecaster is for cleaner and rockier stuff.
anyway i like the emg 85/81 combo ahaha.
i dont like esp's.
