the xiphos is really heavy on the neck and will want to fall to the floor.
i don't know anything about schecters, but if you get a xiphos, you'll probably have to re-drill the holes for the strap buttons and move them

EDIT: but i have a xiphos and the sound quality is great and other than the fact that i have to support the weight of the neck the whole time i'm playing, it's really nice

well schetecters have a sound that IMO crushes ibanez plus they come with OFRS and EMGS

^Lol

I would take the Schecter because it has a better bridge Licensed Floyd Rose vs. Edge III, I like Schecter necks more but that's just a personal preference, and I don't really like the look of the Ibanez, again, a personal preference.

1) Schecter and Ibanez have completely different feels to them. Personal preference.

2) Hellraiser has an Original Floyd Rose, not a Licensed.

3) Vs. threads aren't supposed to be allowed, if you read the rules up on the stickies.

The Vs. Rule is stupid. If the guy said Hellraiser OR Ibanez, nobody would complain, but VS is a no no. Dumb rule

Well, personally I can see why in regards to the first post. Asking which one is better.

No one can truly answer that for anyone else and it becomes a bandwagon fest.

I've also seen people complain enough about posts just like the "Hellraiser or Ibanez" mentioned.

Dumb rule or not, they put it up there. I simply pointed it out.

It's clear which one's better, though. The one which does not have the Edge III and is not made in Indonesia.
Fender Japan Stratocaster Ibanez Pro540 Power Ibanez Pro540 Saber Ibanez 430S Ibanez S540 Charvel LSXIII w/GraphTech Ghost MIDI Parker Fly Artist Ibanez S1220 Mesa F30 Roland GR20 Roland Microcube + IBANEZ TREMS STILL SUCK!

Given the two guitars you were looking at, I'll assume you like to play some type of metal.

What kind of bands do like? How much do you have to spend on the amp? Are you gigging (with a band)?

Ibanez have that feel that just makes me want to never set one down.

And shecters in my hands just feel bulky and useless, every time i try and pla one no matter how high end they just become a massive disapointment in every way.

And yes its all preferance.

And what style of music do you play, how much gain do you need, whats your budget ,ect.

well yes im very much into metal. bands like bullet for my valentine, pantera, metallica, machine head, slayer ,slipknot etc.

and im willing to spend liek $1200 aus. no im not gigging with a band yet but i want an amp that will be good for gigging so wen i do gig i dnt have to buy another amp.

1) Schecter's are made better, and you can get more bang for your buck.
2)Ibanez's have a nicer feel to them, IMO, but Schecter's go a longer way for less, no doubt.
3)The way to tell which is better? Hellraiser FR. 500 Bucks less than Ibanez's closest competition and still smokes Ibz with EMG 81/89 Actives, an Original Floyd, and Set-Neck construction.

Is it really a competition?
Ibanez SAS32EX
Caparison TAT II
Music Man JP 6
BOSS GT-10
ENGL Fireball 60
ENGL Pro Greenback 4x12

Damn it nathan. Now its Hellraiser vs xiphos (after 8 threads of RR3 vs xiphos). I bet that when you will read in some other thread about another guitar that might be better than the hellraiser, you will make 5 topics about that guitar vs xiphos?

WHEN WILL YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE TO GO TO A SHOP AND TEST EVERY GUITAR IN THE 800$ PRICECLASS?
Only then you will know which guitar YOU like the most.
