im deciding between the xiphos and the rg1570 (ibanez guitars). i would change the stock pickups on both and id change the edge III to a OFR cause this can be done.
so help pick please
xiphos. much better shape. and you can get a 7-string model!

Ibanez SR506BM
Ashdown Little Giant 1000w
Peavey TVX 115+410
A big ass upright

yeh, and they're stocked with dimarzio pickups, so unless you want to swap them out for emgs or duncans, there is no need.
