So I was dead set on getting the Ibanez S320 but went and did a final browsing of guitars before ordering and found the Schecter Artist LE on sale for the same price. I'm pretty much expecting everyone to vote for the Artist LE but would like some feedback about the guitar in comparison to the S320.

A 100$ difference isn't exactly the same price to me... unless you meant that you found them both sold at the same price in your local shop. In which case, the Schechter would be the better option...

Although, who cares what I think, because according to this guy ^ everybody hates me anyway.

Make sure you actually try the Schecter before you buy. I personally would take the Ibby over the Schecter.

i would take the ibanez, cuz i need the tremolo, and its far more comfortable to play imo.

Oh, yeah, right thanks for letting me know why you even said that, btw.

It all depends wheter you are going to use tremolo, or will be changing tunings frequently. I would take s320 over the schecter, since I am into whammy bar stuff, and did a pickup upgrade.

That's cuz your baby hands can't handle the big meaty shaft of the schecter.

Try them both, I'd personally get the schecter, but I know some people can't stand the necks on them.

These aren't even that similar. It's like asking which is better - a tuna sammich or a hamburger. They're different meats, man. If you need a trem, get the Ibanez. If you don't need a trem, get the Ibanez anyways. It'll save you a "I bought this schecter but now I want a trem so what should I buy pray tell" thread, along with a hundred bucks for all the tuna and hamburgers you want.

YES. Tuna rules no matter how you cook it. Hell, it even rules completely uncooked. It's the most versatile meat known to the civilized world.

I completely agree with this statement.How can you even begin to think that some multi -stomached sh*t machine beats THE CHICKEN OF THE SEA??!!!!


Ehem....anyway,I'd go for the Ibanez but that's just personal preference.I've never really liked Schecter necks and I've had some quality issues with a couple I tried in the past.I'd rather go with a brand I trust like Ibanez and shell out the extra money for new pickups.
