You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

From what I've heard, Ibanez Edge III trems suck hard. You may also find the Wizard II neck too thin for your liking (or, conversely, the Schecter neck may be too thick for you.)

My sig will show where my bias is.


yeah i just want somethin w/ a trem, and im not too familiar with em, but i think floyd's are better from what ive heard anyways

If you haven't already, make sure to play both guitars. It's stunning how many people buy a new guitar without playing it. See which one you like more, etc. I don't have any other advice, since I haven't played either of those two guitars before. However, in my experience, I tend to like Ibanez more.
#8
While i prefer fat necks, they're both flat. However the ibanez will be thinner. I hate flat necks, and thin ones are even worse.

Get the hellraiser it'll last longer without you needing to customize/mod it.
#9
I say the Ibanez. For some reason, I hate Schecters. I just... hate them. They sound and look nice, but I can't stand them! And the RG350DX is cheaper anyway... So I say Ibanez... Even though it's my biased, anti-Schecter opinion.

Yeah well you're obviously talking out of your a** because that edge 3 is not worth paying for, and after he has to replace it it'll cost a lot more than what he paid for the guitar originally.
#11
yeah the trem alone makes you wanna get the schec.

its veryyy fast too, well there both fast obviously but still, great great great guitar

I was recently in a similar same situation, either a hollywood classic or a SV prestige.
Just play both on numerous ocasions and through different amps, and then decide which is better suited to your needs as a guitarist, NOT what your friends think is shinier.
Gear:
-Ibanez SV prestige
-Yorkville bloc 100
-boss od2
-digitech rp80
-1w marshall stack

did i hear some1 say "jewish black metal"?

Schecter
-Emgs
-ORIGINAL Floyd rose
-Neck Thru
-Coil tap
-Sick inlays on body and neck


Ibanez
-Junk edge III Trem
-Wannabee Dimarzios


...Need i say more?
#14
I'd get the Schecter any day, except for tuesday.
Schecter owns Ibanez, at least the one's with the cheap trems.

FALSE, the C-1 with Duncan Designed pickups is a bolt-on, and does NOT have an OFR.

People... He's talking about the C-1 FR, not the Hellraiser.

Learn to read.

Quote by Gmurcielago14
generally speaking schecters are better than ibanezes

Fail. Ibanez make EXCELLENT guitars if you know where to look. Eg, budget range wanting a double locking trem = S series. Next price range up and your at the RG Prestige. That goes all the way up to J. Custom.

Schecter, as far as i know, make little or no high end guitars.

Threadstarter: All you're going to find here is every bodies own personal opinion. What you need to do is find somewhere where you can play each guitar and come to your own conclusion.

Keep in mind that a lot of people dislike Schecters neck and there's no hiding that the ibanez will have an awful trem (That can be blocked off ad used as a hard tail bridge.)
