.1st i think this is the wrong section ... but u need to give some details ...what music do u play .. what amp u got etc.

best thing would be to go out and try them for yourself see which one u like

good luck

I own a viper 400 and I played both ESP and Ibanez and I cant stand Ibanez. I dont like any specs of Ibanez and I dont like the feel of their guitar.

For the same price, you have better pickups and better wood.

But thats my opinion. Maybe some people cant stand of the ESP cause they dont like it but I dont so i suggest you to try both of them. But the Viper owns the RG
