Hey, I have an option of getting either one, If i am very lucky both coz the Washburn is almost half the price of the Jackson.

Any opinions on which is better?

What's the big deal with Gibsons, anyway?
I've heard loads of Gibsons being played before
and they don't sound any more special than
any other guitar.

Jackson is going to be made better than the Washburn and probably have all around better finish quality as well.
#3
mmmmm is that coz "a Jackson is a Jackson" sorta thing?

Coz I am a big fan of Jackson, but I own another Washburn and the quality really surpised me, so I don't think its a given that the Jackson is better?

the jackson will have better sound, build quality and probably better playability. The washburn probably has............. idk, the jackson kinda beats out the washburn in every way here. Unless the washburn has an original floyd. Then you should decide if you want a guitar with a floyd or a floyd rose with a guitar.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Eh, the Jackson is built better that's for sure. I've played some and even owned a Chinese Washburn that was a killer player with great stock pickups. Had nice hardware as well. However, the electronics were junk, the finish was pretty rough, and it didn't balance well.
