ESP EC-

Ibanez RG-

does the Ibanez have an Edge 3 bridge? If it does get the ESP if it has another kind of bridge get the Ibi.

Personally I'd take the LTD, but that's because I can't stand the Wizard II necks and don't use tremolos.

However in england the LTD probably costs more than a house.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

The ESP will likely have a thick, painted neck. The Ibanez will have a thin, unpainted necl.

The ESP is hartdail. If the RG is a cheap one, it will have an Edge 3 and will therefore crumble into dust as soon as you touch it.

which RG?
Schecter C-1 Classic (Antique Amber)
Ibanez JEM 7VWH
Crate Palamino Class A tube combo

AN EDGE 3 IS A LICENSED FLOYD ROSE, AND A BAD ONE AT THAT. OK?


This thread is intolerable.

Ibanez DON'T use Licensed Floyd Roses. They don't buy a license, they bastardised the first design, and came up with the edge series. Which apart from the Edge III was a good thing.

Well, I am feeling pretty vulnerable

Sometimes caps are needed to get the point across while conveying my irritation at the lack of cooperation from the TS.
#29
**** that trem off for an OFR and you're done.
By ESPs high prices I'm sure you can afford it.
But I believe it'd be better to get an RG350 or 370 of some kind over that one.
Not sure though, not got much experiance in low end Nez.
#30
I would take any ESP/LTD over an RG anyday.

Get any S series.
IMO, S > RG.

You can't even spell Ibanez and you can't back up your argument.

Your opinion is invalid.

*points to door*

if its between those two guitar... Id go with the EC.

Both ESP and Ibanez are my fav. company's... So thats a tough one.

Uhh, no.

Stick a set of Dimarzio Evo's in an mid range RG and you've got something better than the 555, and I doubt TS's price range stretches to the JEM7VWH.


With those two guitars it's yor best bet to compare the two together, the EC is going to generally be better at rhythm playing, whereas the RG will be better at lead, not saying that one can't do either, but that's what they'll be better at.

As previously mentioned, have a look at an S470, far better than that model RG.


And, it is an Edge III.
