so im finally about to get money to upgrade from my epiphone les pauls special, which i actually like, but i think sustain and intonation from 12 fret on is not the best.
anyway, i'm willing to spend a max of 400 euros (600$). right now im torn between the

cort evl z4

and the ibanez art120

what do you guys think? what about the ibanez pickups? they are , in contrast to the cort emg pickups, active. and what is better, a bolt-on neck or set-in ?

thanks in advance
