the ESP standard sv is handmade in Japan, it is not a cheap $400 korean guitar. Unfortunatly it is more expensive than the rr 1 and isn't even available from any US esp dealer, it has to be special ordered directly from Japan through a european or australian esp dealer.
come on guys, 24 extra jumbo frets and EMG-81's?? hear the difference, duncans are weak!

Meh, if i had all the money in the world id get the standard SV from ESP, but then again after all is said and done itll be close to 4000 just for the guitar. I decided to build my own jackson replica. It sounds rediculously close to the original sound, I put in EMG 81 because theres nothing better,

Hmm..

All these answers are interesting, but noone seems to get to the real beef of it all, obviously the subject is extremely subjective, but whatever guitar suites you better should be your answer. If i could only try the fucking SV i'd be more calm, but it seems to be like such an amazing guitar. And the Jackson would be perfect if it had 24 frets (thats probably why they dont manufacture it that way). And the wood bullshit... well they both have Ebony fretboards, and are equally as heavy in the body so, that basically cancels out. Its all up to the Seymour Vs. EMG, and the 24 fret difference...

I tried the 81's on one of kirk guitars, and no doubt that it sounded fucking sweet. I tried the Jackson and it had quiet a unique sound, something I have not experienced before. Oh god what a dillema. I need to solve this soon fokers, I'm failing all my classes because of this shit! Can't stop thinking about it jajaja. Long Live the power of the 6 string. Hail.

the rhoads really isnt a signature model. Hes been dead for a really long time and it basically just turned into a standard jackson model. We might as well say les pauls are les's signature guitar so playing them makes you look stupid.

The Rhoads shapes is exactly that...

Randy Rhoades V. When you see that guitar shape you should think of Randy Rhodes.

My guess would be that that comment was about the Alexi ESP, not about the Jackson RR. That's just my guess though....

About the guitars, well.....
-I wouldn't buy something that doesn't have 24 frets
-I want EMGs
On the other hand,
-I wouldn't be able to reach higher than like 21 on the ESP (AFAI can see)
-I prefer Jackson for their name

I really wouldn't buy any of these guitars. I'd prefer to get a custom one, either from a cheaper custom shop (like Ran) or building it myself.

What the fuck? Ibanez? well anyways... yeah this is probably the guitar dilemma, obviously the decision is subjective but well.... I think i've been leaning more towards the ESP Sv, but very fucking hard to get so its a damn hastle... and since its already like 2800 bucks (about), then shipping to South America (which is where I live) is quite a hastle, so fuck it. Hmm.... Well thanx for all your posts.. jajaj carry on if you will.. if one of you guys have both of them and have a good review, then.. well POST IT!

Sometimes it's best to think twice. Sure, not everybody has to like a certain brand, but that doesn't mean the brand's shit. Ibanez has/has had signature models by guys like Vai, Satriani, Petrucci, Gilbert and Scofield ... that alone should be some sort of indication that their guitars don't exactly suck. They could get endorsements from every possible guitar company, but they choose/chose Ibanez, and you say they "suck" ...do you see the contradiction?
