Jackson for sure.
Let's go back to five billion bpm and see how good i am.

Wait, I'm confused. Is the Strat a Mexican or an American?

Either way though, the JS30s are nowhere near the quality of the MIMs or MIAs.
Bands to see before I die:
Iron Maiden
Foo Fighters
Megadeth
Reel Big Fish
Rush
Streetlight Manifesto

Gear:
Epi LP Standard
Washburn Strat
Line 6 Spider (Yes, I know it's bad)

GAS:
Ibanez RG3570Z
Digitech Whammy

That doesn't make sense at all.

Even though you play metal, I'd vouch for the Fender since the JS series is pure garbage IMO.

Maybe you should consider some kind of Schecter..... they're really cool guitars..... even the low end Schecters are great guitars!

take a look at:
Schecter Demon
Schecter Damien
Schecter Hellraiser (quite expensive!)


Ibanez RG2228 Prestige
Schecter C7 Jeff Loomis FR (18volt mod)
Epiphone Gothic Explorer (with SD Blackouts)
Ibanez RG350M Yellow
Peavey C5 Tigerwood 5string bass

I'd rate the strat before the JS30 easily. I've always found jackson's below about the DK2 model to be a bit cheaply made and tacky. The quality of the MIM will be a lot higher than the jackson.

But saying that i'd rate the MIM tele above the strat. but thats just me.

Go by feel and sound. Once you've found what you like, then look at some reviews to suggest the reliability.

hope i've helped.
