Ibanez RG2550Z or ESP LTD MH-1000NT . Which one would you pick and why? they are round the same price range / Ibanez has 43mm nut width jumbo frets / esp has 42 mm nut width XJ frets - hard rock and metal -

Over all i would have liked them both to have XJ frets and 43mm nut width for my large hands !

ibanez, it's MIJ.

it also has the neck width you like which is fairly important (unless you have no strong preference either way).

I doubt the ibanez frets are any smaller than the LTD ones, but I could be wrong. One company's XJ might be another's J, etc. etc.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Ibanez frets are enormous, btw, on most of their RG's.

I'd take a MIJ Ibanez over an LTD any day.

Play both. I do not have much experience with Ibanez, but love my MH-400. I like it better than my Gibson Les Paul Studio. The Neck and frets are great and the EMG's (mine has the 81/85) sound great with heavy gain. I do not care for all the pearl stuff on the 1000, but it is a really good guitar.

Like I said, play both...Good Luck!
