Yeah, they are the same, but that warrior, along with any other JAckson USA, kicks ass. You can probably get a mint condition or near mint one off ebay for the price of a Ran. ANd you dont have to wait.

Its my new thing, USA Jackson's are the best guitar are the planet. IF you haven't played one, go play one, they are amazing.

If I remember correctly it depends on how they finish the guitar and how they saw the wood. But there is no difference tone wise.

With the maple top on that one I would have to guess sausage quilt but I can't be for sure. The picture isn't really good enough for me to tell.

Sonically, it doesn't really matter what type of maple top is on your guitar, its gonna sound like theres a maple top whether its spalted, flamed, quilted, etc.

Oh, and that warrior is see-thru black with a flamed maple top.

It looks that way because its a 5A flamed maple top. Generally, when you see a production guitar with the lame tiger stripe look, its 3A flamed maple or possibly even lower grade. To my knowledge, Ran guitars uses 5A, but you may want to ask Dariusz about that.

I love that finish, but it doesnt go well with the Warrior shape

Maple tops are always awesome, but the style of finish doesnt matter tonewise.

tiger striped looks is called flames. the wavy one on the warrior is called quilted.

I meant that the tiger stripe/flamed look of lesser grade maple tops differs from the high quality flame/tiger tops. And on second look, the warrior does seem to have a quilt top...my mistake. I made the mistake of looking at the pointy wings and not so much at the actual body of the guitar.
