i need an honest opinion based on tone, quality, and action alone, which would be better a jackson rhoads rr3 or an ibanez xiphos, tell me which one and im open to suggestions too and give me a reason for your explanation
i have played neither but i have played several jacksons and several ibanez and ibanez wins everytime and i hear the xiphos are good

I'm going to say the jackson. I'm a big fan of ibanez but I Love jackson's tone.
Jackson. MIJ>MII. Jackson lic. FR>Edge III. OK? OK. Not to mention the jackson comes with duncans, instead of some cheap Ibanez pup.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
