Re: ibanez j custon or custom jackson?

I've always been intrigued with the idea of custom Jackson, but cost and the impression that Jacksons are pretty much metal guitars kept me from it. I own a J-Custom and find it much more verstile. Also, I've found the neck very similiar to nice USA Jackson I once checked out.

Depends on the J-Custom model and the custom jackson specs. A good portion of my guitar collection are all J-Customs now and I love them to death. So my vote goes for the J-Custom.

It would depend on funds. If money's no object, I'd have Jackson make me something based on the PC-1 with the Strat headstock. But J-Customs tend to be cheaper seeing as they're not real custom creations.

Re: ibanez j custon or custom jackson?

If money was not an issue, I would go for a Jackson custom. It will be a real custom made-to-your-specs guitar.
But I tend to lean towards Ibanez beacause there's all I want from a guitar in a lower price (plus, I like Ibanez tremolos better than the OFR).
Have you tried playing them? It could help you decide. IMO playability and the way the guitar balances or "fits" on your body are as important as the pickups.
Either way you'll get a great guitar!

I'd go Jackson... and I own a J. Custom & a USA Soloist. You can't spec out your own J. Custom and Jackson makes a heck of a great sounding/playing guitar!
