Exclamation THE Jackson RR1 vs. ESP Standard SV... which would you buy?

Alright I think this is it... Jackson RR1 VS. Esp Standard SV... Here you have to have in mind Korean manufacturing Vs. U.S. Manufacturing, AND EMG pickups Vs. Seymour Duncan.. and the Jackson has 22 frets while the SV has 24.. hmm..sounds very intriguing to me.... if you had enough money to buy any of these two.. and ONLY these two which one would it be??

us manufacturing, sd pups? no brainer. even with just 22 frets. actually a smaller scale neck is easier to play up there, and i'm quite happy with my rg570 for 24 frets, so i'd like a 22 fretter.

but really, us manufacturing and NO EMGs makes it no contest for me

id rather use dimarzios, but sd are decent.

I TOTALLY recomend u not to buy korean guitars, are not as good as usa models, besides, in a personal opinion, i think jackons are cooler than ESP but i think u should go and buy what you liike more, check the sound of both guitars, ompare every little tiny thing of them, for example the knobs and the strings, haha...just kiddin...

THE POINT IS!:::::::jaaaaackson, but not jackson if its korean....then esp

ESP's are made in Japan... Japan guitars are high quality. All Ibanez guitars are made in japan.

i d prob go with the esp v, cos it looks pretty sweet and i think they are made in the esp customshops in japan. So there bound to be good. But if i were you i'd play them both for hours and then compare them for sound etc and then buy wat ever one

if you want an rrv, may i suggest one of the ones from the Jackson Stars series. They are all neck-through, have excellent pickups, are made in japan, and have 24 frets.
they are around the same price as an rr5 to boot.

what ESP model do you mean? Got a link to it?

If I had the choice and the cash, I'd go for the Jackson easily.

Yea i would rather go with the esp cause it has 24 frets, its got nice woods, and according to my knowledge its a neck thru, and it has emg's. The ESP sv is actually japanese, and its a 2 humbucker model copy of alexi laiho's Custom ESP RR that they make at the japanese ESP custom shop (supposedly one of the best in the world), If i was gonna go for anything i would either get the SV RR, the Aleix RR, or a Ran Custom RR (which i will be ordering in 4 days)

Hmm...

Yeah the RR right? hmm its weird though.. i have quite an affection for ESP guitars.. ive tried a few KH's, i own an explorer, i tried also a baritone, but i cant fucking find that stupid SV... but ive tried the RR many times and its just amazing, legendary.. that type of guitar you'll never let go... but.. hmm.. i still find it quite a hard choice..
