I'm currently torn between the two. My friend is selling his Ibanez S320 with dimarzio pickups and another friend is selling a GRG270 with stock pickups. Which one is better? I play metal and rock and like to shred.

S320 is a higher-end guitar and it's got the nicer pickups. Go for that one, no question.

Hey guys I just found out it was a grg270b not a grg270. Does that make enough difference to consider the grg270b?

One is a shitty GiO with binding and the other one is a shitty GiO without binding.


So no.

there is no comparison. GIO's are shit. the S is a decent guitar. the pickups are probably a lot better too.

Yeah, reviews like that you've got to think about frames of reference. The cheaper the guitar, the more likely it is that the reviewer's never played anything decent.

On a good day the actual text can be useful. On a good day.

+3 on the not trusting the reviews. as it seems the cheaper it is, generally the less experienced they are with gear and think its great. as it gets more expensive, people realize that the cheap guitar that they got last year didn't hold up to their new purchase, and get something new, then the realize there is better out there and are more critical.

i think everybody is guilty of it to some point at the beginning of their playing career, its not really their fault.

on a side not i was reading the comments on a review i wrote a while ago, it was on my Splawn Nitro, and i think it was like an 8 overall, maybe a tad under, and one of the comments on the bottom said something along the lines of "this amp is so great! why does it get an 8?" its not perfect and there things that are better/worse about it in comparison to another amp. nothing is perfect. everything could be better in some way.

as it has been said take reviews with a grain of salt.

S series guitars are nice - I've got an S420, but I think the main difference between mine and your friend's is that his has nicer pickups and his only has 22 frets.

I'm a student. I've got no time or space for an amp!

I hope so. He said he swapped the pickups with dimarzio but he doesn't know which model and I've heard that the INF1 and INF2 on the s320 stock is better than some Dimarzio pickup models.
#14
^ where'd you hear that? it's ages since I've tried them but the low end ibanez pickups, IIRC, are pretty terrible.

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.

^ INF sounded a bit better than the Dimarzio Paf Pro accroding to this video. Specially when distorted.

But I hope it's not totally true. I can't really test the two guitars that my friends are selling cuz I'm in a farther country and I'm just gonna have them ship the guitar to me.
#16
paf pros are pretty nice. but they're not very hot. if he has the amp dialled in to suit the INFs (which are probably a bit hotter) that might explain it. also that's the neck position, that's not what i'd say is the best test for a distorted tone.

If you ask me the paf pro sounds a lot better there, too.

give me the option between paf pros and INFs and I'm not picking the INFs...
