Hio GMC!

Its time for my 5 year old cheepo-LP-copy to be replaced with something new.

Im looking for a new guitar, for metal/rock/shred. I want a lightweight, nice looking guitar with a good whammy (and pickups if possible). Anything below 1250EUR is good for me.

I have checked out the IbanezS2170, seems to fit my needs and pricerange.

Anyone got experience of it?
Im open for suggestions, bring it on! laugh.gif


edit. Bought a ESP, check it out later on in the thread

I have one...... Never seen it in that color before.
Its an apsolutely great instrument. NEVER goes out of tune!
break a string...stays in tune.
The only thing i dont like is the lack of fret markers on the board. Im use to using them.
Pull the trigger and buy it. You wont be sorry.

Thats my opinion.

Go Hard Tail! The ability to switch tunings easily will open you to many new things with the guitar. I had a nice wammy and I used it maybe once live. I looks nice though.

One word: Schecter! They are damn cheep, considering that it is an extremely good guitar! The neck is very smooth, they aren't that heavy, cool, but not excessively looking, good sound and so on!

Found some examples for you:
Schecter Synyster Custom (My favorite Schecter!)
Schecter C1XXX (Check the fretboard inlays tongue.gif)
Schecter Hellraiser C-7

A lot more Schecter guitars here, and all their models can be found at Schecter.com. Promise you won't be disappointed with a Schecter!

Cheers,
Batista

try a GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO. they are awesome. play amazingly well and are made in USA. Plus you'd be used to the body style.

EDIT: sry they have no wammy, but still check em out

Yea saw em, the only one i would be interested in is the C-1 with FR trem. But still, i dont like to buy something "cheap" . Lol, its might just be some psychological thingy that has gotten into me, i wanna use all or none of the cash laugh.gif

Too bad the ibanez isnt available in like, black or something (only the cheeper nonprestiges). I know its available in Swirled Ebony but i cant find it anywhere in the EU.

Yea, checked em up, they look like fine guitars, and look pretty good too.
http://www.sanderd.be/public/fotos/guitar/ESP_LTD_M-1000/

edit. Thats the M-1000 not the MH tho, whats the difference besides the looks and pickups?

edit2. And how is the original FR compared to Ibanez ZR/Edge pro?

edit3. And ofcource its out of stock everywhere on the net, anyone know a webstore with the new mh1000/m1000 in stock? (in EU, ships to sweden)

A agree with AudioPaal, this guitar is more than enough to replace your LP copy. It seems like a very comfortable guitar with some decent stock pickups too.

The new Prestige series is stunning. The s series have a mahogany body, and an awesome bridge. This one have a beautiful and strange color. Maybe the pickups are not too good, but is only a question of taste. Good guitar, no doubt!

Thats a great guitar, I'm sure you will be happy with it...And yes , not having fret markers can be annoying in certain situations ..

Oi!

I visited my local music store to order an LTD MH-1000, but they got me buying this guitar instead, that they had in stock and for a nice price.

ESP Horizon FR





Sounds great and looks beautiful
