I have (and have owned) a bunch of different guitars, mostly ESP's (LTD, Standard, Original and Navigator) but also PRS and Ibanez... and I am starting to GAS for a Jackson, specifically a King V... most likely second hand, to keep the costs down. Now, for ESP, PRS and Ibanez, the "tiers" of quality are pretty easy to figure out (mostly), and if I see a second-hand Ibby or PRS or ESP, its easy to understand if it is a budget guitar or a premium one. With Jackson.... I'm completely at a loss. So, I have two questions: 1. Which of the Japanese made Jackson (or Jackson related brand, ie Jackson Stars etc) V's are worth trying to find? I see some comments saying that some of them (from a certain era?) rival the made in the USA ones, but some of them are just cheap. How do I tell the difference? 2. Do the MIJ Jackson's feel like MIJ Ibanez Prestige? (this is another comment I have seen, and tbh it puts me off a bit -- not because they are bad, but Ibanez are not for me. Tried and didn't suit.) In an ideal world, I'd be able to play a bunch and figure this out for myself, but this is tricky from my location. Also, I think a USA made V is ideal, but again, due to location, this is expensive. I do semi-regularly travel to Japan however, hence a leaning in that direction. Or do I just accept I am an ESP-whore and get an ESP made V of some kind (the stupid upside down sharktooth bugs me for some reason, but I know I love the feel of ESP guitars. I played one of these https://sevenstring.org/threads/bir...esp-40th-anniversary-rusty-iron-arrow.318571/ last year, and it was, of course, amazing -- and also just a little (!) on the expensive side!).
