K, ive always been an ibanez fan, and i've narrowed my guitar choice down to two guitars. I want to know which one you guys at UG recommend. Here are my choices

Egen18 Herman Li:

Price: £610 (Not the Prestige edition, at £2000, i consider that theft tbh)
Dimarzio Pickups (two double coiled and a single coiled)
24 Frets
Hand grip
Platinum BLonde colour (I consider it a shiny hardwood colour)
S-shaped design
Tremolo Bar
Different modes for pickups

X Xiphos

Price: £550
Dimarzio pickups (Two double coiled)
24 frets
Awesome shape
Red Chameleon Colour (changes colour with the light angle)
Tremolo Bar
Three-way pickup selection

K, my difficulty in choosing is simply that i like the Egen for it's varied pickup selection, easy shape etc, but prefer the Xiphos on price, shape and colour. However, i wannt know what you guys think.

Note: and i dont want anyone suggesting anytihng else please. Ive taken great consideration into what i want from a guitar, and these two both fit the bill. I just simply want an answer: A or B, and your reasons. Appreciate it guys. Thanks

Xiphos

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I'm scarred for life

Egen: I love the ZR, and as far as I can tell the balance issues for the xiphos guitars still hasnt been sorted

*edit*

whoaaaah, both have an edge iii. If you can get past the xiphos neck dive, go for it. Otherwise, egen
ProTone Pedals: Attack Overdrive
Fractal Audio: AxeFX 2
Engl: Fireball 60
Zilla: Fatboy 2x12
Carvin: DC700
Carvin: Vader 7
Schecter: KM-7 MKii
Schecter: Banshee 8 Passive
Jackson: DK2M

I like the Xiphos because it's a lot simpler of a guitar, with an insane body shape and a sleeeek neck. The neck dive can be avoided with a strap lock and a nice DiMarzio clip strap. That's why my old guitarist used. =]
PROUD VEGETARIAN!

Bass rig:
