Ibanez RG350EX gets my vote, i think it looks a whole lot better, and tbh, its little differencein price, but the cheaper appeals to me much more. dunno why... i also prefer less parts to the neck, 5 seems a little much.


EWWWWW!

What pu's should I buy? (after buying a engl, of course ) Seymour Duncan Blackout's, a Hot Road set (JB/'59), Duncan Custom/'59, Dimarzio Tonezone/Air Norton ? It's basicaly for metal, and some clean stuff (I mostly play Arch Enemy [Amott FTW!!! ) . What is your opinion guys?

Well, the Amott brothers for the most part use Seymour Duncans.

Yes, michael amott uses JB/'59, and christopher uses a JB and hot rails... But they also uses Krank's and Peavey JSX, i just plan to buy a little engl screamer or a fireball . I'm confused, i see guys like laiho and mick thomson changing to the news blackout's.. So i don't now, you understand better than me, i guess

Mike used a Krank Revo and a 5150 in a Krank case (Although, he switched to Randall now).

Yes I now, a Randall V2.. Anyway, the point is they use high-end amps, a squier sound awseome in any amp of them (no offense ). I don't now if i go with passives of actives..

^ They don't have knifes egdes, so sould be ok




The bridge wouln't move, right?

^ i think that doesn't exist a guitar that come with blackout's already, and to be sell in portugal, will take a longgg time.. I already the JB, but was in a alder body, and sound a bit trebly..

^ yes it looks georgeous

Ya, I meant checking out some mahogany/EMGd guitars to get the idea of actives.

JBs sound awesome in mahogany imo.
#19
^ The last time i play a jackson with sd'd and a jackson with emg's, both alder.. The sd's (JB/'59) had less output, but a better tone in my opinion. That's why i don't ask about emg's
#20
The MTM2 is the Mick Thompson one right? That looks real nice, but i like the Red one WAY more, my favourite colour. The fixed EDGE 3 looks like a waste though, and there is no tone knob on Micks guitars either ( i think )
#21
^ yes, i like the red more to, but it's costs 2x more.. The edge is fixed, so souldn't have problem, i think. I don't need tone knob, i never use with, i only play metal, isn't very usefull
