what do you guys think is better? Looks and Quality too. im leaning more towards Ibanez cause IMO jacksons arent the same as they use to be...plus i think it has a more "metal" look


My Rig:
ESP LTD EX-400BD (two of them)
Peavey 5150
Mesa 4x12 Straightback Slant cab loaded with v30's
The Xiphos looks better IMO but I've yet to play one. I'd like to see the chameleon paint job on it in person coz it looks pretty cool in the pics.
Ibanez have seemed to have developed a nasty habit of making really cool guitars and slapping a shitty trem on them at the last minute. I don't like tremolos myself so it puts me off as you can't get this guitar with a fixed bridge.
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!
The Jackson.

I've never seen the ibanez in person, but on the website it looks very dull.
i prefer the body shape of the ibanez but for every other aspect of the two guitars i prefer the jackson
