I like the Alexi to be honest. The RR24 is great, but I prefer the feel of the Alexi.

It was the only task I would undertake...

i recommend the alexi is cheaper is about the same but you have to consider how big you want the fretboard too

the rr24 has bigger fretboard though thats a big plus if you want comfort but if you want to do stuff that strecches your finger you might not have as much reach

but does it really have to be between those two guitars?

i know they look cool but they lack features for example two pickups and switch between pickups

my recommendation is this one check other guitars first

i tried an alexi and realized if i was going to practice 8 hours or alot it would be standing up. sitting with a V shape guitar is almost impossible and uncomfortable

it only has one pickup which limits you on tone

i got this guitar but look for something similar or check other guitars

You are pretty much right, but if you know that you only want to play metal, it may not be necessary to have 2 pickups. Also, that lets the wood resonate more.

I find it more comfortable to play a V sitting down as opposed to a Stratocaster type body.

And, I'm not saying this is true of everyone here, but most people will say the rr24 just because the Alexi is a signature model. Some tend to think that a signature guitar has to be overpriced. The Alexi and the rr24 are nearly identical, and they are priced about the same.

I chose to get an Alexi, because I didn't want a compound radius fretboard, and it has a cutout for better fret access, though many will argue the the rr24 doesn't need a cutout, because the fret access is already good. Also, I prefer SD Blackouts over EMG 81s.

Go try one of these out in a store, see how you like playing a V sitting down. After that, it just comes down to the guitar's overall 'feel' and its pickup.

They both have EMGs now.

To me, getting a guitar shaped like a RR from ESP is like ordering a Whopper from McDonald's. It's just not natural.

Oh yeah, they did put the EMG hz back in. I got mine a few months ago with the blackout.

Considering they go for about $1200 CAD new, that better be one hell of a guitar.

i never understood why it was so difficult to play stting with a v. it came so naturally to me and it felt more comfortable and easier to play with than a strat style sitting down. i guess i'm wierd.
RR24 looks wise and quality wise to me. alexi because it's cheaper and has an unfinished neck.

He means the ESP - not the LTD.

I'm sure its an awesome guitar, but I've never played a 'true' ESP.
