Hi, back from the dead here
So guys, I tried the search engine and was not able to find any threads about that, so here it goes.
How are these two Vs compared? I mean, are those basicaly the same thing -kahler and sharktooth inlays or is there something else to it?
Is the LTD version a no go or does it worth the money?
ESP's neck profiles and fretwork are significantly different than Jackson's, and that applies across the board. One's not better than the other, it's just a question of which you prefer.
I've never played the full-on ESP version of the DV8 and have only played the Japanese-made KV Pro version of the Jackson. Jackson used very small fretwire on the Mustaine signature KVs (at Mustaine's request), smaller than I remember on the LTD DV8s that I've played in stores. Those LTD versions are decent, but really not much different than any other LTD V-series neckthru. I certainly wouldn't pay extra for one.
