both are great but think about this. are you sure you will be putting use to the 27 frets? how many times do you really need to play above 27 frets (i regularly dont but tapping up there is freaky ****)? really dellilnger SE if you just want a guitar that can handle most of the shizznit while the horus your most likely to experiment with the upper frets

I very rarely use frets 23 -24 let alone up to 27!

still gotta experiment its the most fun you can ever have

Aside from the frets, you also need to look at it tone wise and comfortability. The slanted neck single will give you -bassy and the high 3 strings will sound more twangy-. But 1 more advantage is that it wont disturb your picking technique if you pick in the middle.

Thats one expensive guitar, but IMO, its worth it coz every hardware is top notch, 'cept the pickups, i dunno how good stock caparisons are.

First, those are both sweet guitars. But, you aren't spending that much to buy a guitar because your favorite band uses them are you?

wheres the pickup selector switch on the horus


volume knob is a push/push so that you switch between bridge and neck pickup

Quote by ibanez4life SZ!
IMO, you can get a guitar that is just as good with a much smaller price tag. It would even allow for a pickup swap!

An Ibanez RG, or something of the sort, comes to mind!


yeh but do ibanez rg have mahogany body, do they have the heel cut, do they have schaller trems, do they come in h/s/s or h/s, do they even have 27 frets. hey you can swap pickups on Caparison guitars even though they use an unconventional method its still possible.

Quote by ibanez4life SZ!
^Yes, mine has a mahogany body

Yes, they can come in slightly different pickup configurations...

No, they don't have 27 frets, but one can definitely live without that....IMO of course,

And the floyds on quality RGs are amazing!


heel cut? 27 frets i cant live without them. well if they do come in different pickup configuration lets see one with humbucker in the bridge and a slanted single coil pickup in the neck
#20
The heel cut is just the same as AANJ.

Dunno, looks the same to me
Caparison -
Ibanez AANJ -

Probably the caparison's one is a bit more rounded thru the middle.

If I was given a choice between a Dellinger and, say, RGT220/320, I'd pick the former just because the price is very comparable, but everyone and their cousin has an RG (or two! ), and I'd prefer a bolt-on neck to the pickups sitting in a block of maple neck-thru.

Funny thing is that all of my electrics are dark red. I don't do it on purpose. I just noticed it.

Which is precisely what I was saying: Dellinger's bolt on + mahogany > RGT's neck-thru + mahogany. Mmm.

Fender Strat and definately the Marshall. I have the marshall head and it is bad. The Fender Strat has a skinny neck which i really like, i play the lead though, for rythm i would prefer the Epiphone.
