Which one(s) would you keep?

All is not an option, must get rid of one or two.

Re: Which one(s) would you keep?

I would get rid of the jackson that sounds the worst, they both look in decent condition but that black one looks more heavily played, although it may just be the fingerpring happy paint job.

All in all, definitely keep the ibanez, it has a superior tremolo system, headstock design, neck profile, and more versatile electronics, although not equipped with top shelf duncans, still more versatile tones.

Are the Jacksons the same guitar?
If so probably one of them, the black one, unless they are both USA Jacksons, then ditch that pink mess.
Of course Im not a fan of pink guitars and if I was into the superstrats USA Jacksons are my favorite.

Re: Which one(s) would you keep?

Yeah the Jackson is the same guitar, just different paint job, both USA. I can't detect a difference in tone between the two, but the black one needs a fret dress. The white one just arrived. That 'pink mess' is an RG550 20th reissue road flare red!!!!! It's just came out that way in the photo.

I don't actually like the Duncan tone, prefer the DiMarzios. I want to put DiMarzios in the soloists.

I'm not too keen on white guitars so that would have to go!

Re: Which one(s) would you keep?

If the Jackson is the same guitar, and the white one is in better shape(ie: doesn't need a fret dress) then I say keep the white Jackson and the Ibanez (assuming you are only getting rid of one). If two must go, I think the RG is more versatile. Keep it!

Under any circumstance, do not get rid of the Ibanez..............unless, of course, you wanna give it to me................hehe.

I'd ditch the white Jackson, if I HAD to pick. Then again, I am currently on a black guitar kick, so........

Wow, I feel stupid answering such an obvious question! LOL. Keep the 20th (which is no way pink, it just confuses cameras, Elcid!). My goodness. Keep the damn 20th!

I'm starting to wish the 20th came in pink.

If you have to ditch one, make it the black Jackson. Just don't get rid of the white one. I'm a sucker for white Superstrats.
