hey, im thinking of buying a new guitar and im looking at the esp M-II. Right now I have an Ibanez Artist and its pretty good and i love it but i really want a new guitar. So what im wanna know if the esp is a big enough step up from my ibanez to be worth it. Heres the stock pic and info of the Ibanez. Ibanez ARX500 Thanks in advance

Thats like comparing apples and oranges. Those 2 guitars are totally different and are generally used for totally different styles of music.

If you really like the way your particular ibanez feels, then you might be dissapointed with the ESP. Its a totally different guitar.

Not really a "step-up" from your ibanez. Id say its a step sideways.

^ Word.

The M-II will probably have a slightly thicker neck and a floating trem is going to be a big change from your Ibanez.

Just remember, a guitar with a trem is not going to afford you some of the luxuries of a guitar without a trem.

If you change tunings often, you might want to steer clear of a floating trem guitar.

How much does the M-II cost?

Also, is there any particular reason why you want the M-II?

I think it costs around $1600. I want it cause i want the emgs and i'd like to try owning a floyd rose. I'v tried emgs and the cleans sound good (it might be because it wasnt at the loudest volume correct me if im wrong). and for some reason i would love the complexity of the floyd rose.

I dont like EMG cleans, unless the volume is rolled down.

If your going to spend that much money, mind i reccomend a Jackson SL1 soloist?

They run for about 1700, and you get a better, more quality guitar IMO.

Neckthru, OFR, SD pickups, USA Made, and not to mention absolutely beautiful.
