well the guys on the bass forum helped me choose my current awesome bass, the Ibanez SR505 (thanks again)

so now im putting my choice of new guitar in your hands... its between...


The Ibanez RG350EX, $850



Ibanez RG2550Z - $1600


Schecter Omen Extreme Fr - $710



or the Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR - $1100


i know i want a guitar with floyd rose, and i know how much of a pain they can be, ive been told multiple times, if you have any other suggestions other then these 4 please let me know but please consider price aswell coz im only 14 and dont have a very big income.

thanks in advance

EDIT: forgot to mention, this is my second guitar, been playing since i was like 6, on some cheap acoustic. and for the past 2 years been using a squire strat.

MY personal recommendation would be to make sure that those ibanez's don't have EDGE III tremolos. They're fine while they last, but they dont last long. It would be better to just save up for an ibz with an edge pro or zr instead.

if you can save enough money go with the hellraiser, imo it's the best choice out of all those. Btw you can get it cheaper here: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-Hellraiser-C1-FR-Electric-Guitar?sku=513134

The Ibanez's will play better, but the schecters will sound better IMO. So your choice.

This is UG, we love Schecters and Ibanez and Jacksons, we hate Deans and BCR's, we hate Marshall MG's, and everyone needs a new amp.

thanks for your help, but i think atm im leaning abit towards the schecter omen just because its so much cheaper, and thanks stevo but i dont really wanna buy online, and i think both the ibanez guitars have edge lll so not too sure about them anymore
#10
The RG2550Z only costs $899 not $1600.

The RG2550Z has an edge-zero and the rg350ex has an edge 3.

im from australia, stuffs more expensive here lol, and the sales over anyway so its back to $2000 so i think that puts that one out of the question

the RG2550Z has an Edge Pro Trem, one of the best ibby trems, and has better quality than the Schecter, imo.
