Hey all, Brand new here and signed up specifically for this question. EDIT: I’m brand new so I couldn’t post links to the guitars. I just posted the names :$ I’m going to pull the trigger on one of these two guitars. No store has any of them in stock and I’d need to put down a deposit just to get my hands on one. I said I’d never do that again as I’ve had so many bad experiences with lemons including two “custom” mayones that quickly found their way on reverb at massive losses but I’ve had my eye on both of these since the start of the year. ESP LTD SN-1000FR BLACK BLAST JACKSON SL3M RAINBOW CRACKLE I’ve heard horror stories about Jackson and basswood and I love my LTD. My favourite guitars I own have ash bodies and this Ltd. has one. Looking for any input on quality control etc. The specs seem dearer on the LTD but that rainbow crackle has been on my mind every day since I saw it.. I did have a seven string Jackson that I plek’d when I was apprenticing in a shop that had one and it was the sturdiest most stable guitar I’ve ever owned but I’ve tried countless in store and they were horrendous. I’ve never played a “bad” Ltd. Any input would be appreciated as this is a reward for myself and there’s nothing worse than the downer of a let down NGD where you spend the whole time trying to justify the cost for what you actually just got.
