    ESP or Fender?

    Hi! I am trying to decide between purchasing a ESP Phoenix 1000 or a Fender Jazzmaster Jim Root. Any suggestion? Including other options ...Thanks.

    Firstly, welcome to MG!

    Secondly, I don't think any of us can make that decision for you.
    If you don't have a way to try both, what do you have already and what do you like in guitars? Think in terms of neck shapes, scale length, pickups, bridges etc.
    call me on 911 (USA) or 999 (UK) for poser disposal services

    I haver only a Gibson 335 1985 right now. But I am looking for a more heavy sound, something like Daron Malaquian. I like both shapes and features, but I dont know each one would fit better. I kind of dont like signature models.

    Both will do the job. I'm more biased towards the Fender because I love the feel of the Jazzmaster body and prefer EMGs over Fishmans, also I prefer bolt-on necks.

    Definitely the ESP. Even if they play the same the ESP is fuckloads cooler looking.
