Now, I'm really happy with my current guitars, very very pleased. But can one ever have too many?

Ever since I got a guitar with a floyd rose style bridge, I've been using the a whole lot, can barely imagine buying one without a bar now. I had intended on the next guitar I get to be the LTD Alexi Laiho signature, being a big Bodom fan and having played it before, but lately the Ibanez Xiphos has really intrigued me.

I've never played on it but something about it says " need me". Is it the shape? Muhammad of Necrophagist shredding on it? Some strange mutation of my mind telling the future that I would indeed enjoy that guitar? I dunno but I am very interested in it, problem is i don't know of any nearby dealers that have any, unless they've gotten one in the past month or so.

So anyway if anyone can shed some light on this guitar with a review it would be really awesome. If there already is a review, my bad XD

Ibanez and LTD make quality guitars, I can vouch for both companies, but I've never played the Laiho. The Xiphos is a fracking cool guitar though, I love the chameleon finish, the neck is somewhat thicker than most other Ibananaz I've played, and the pickups sounded great to me. The Laiho only has one pickup though, I think they are Seymour Duncan Blackouts now, I've heard good things about that pickup.

But if you're very very pleased with your current fiddles, why don't you look into getting a new amp, or recording gear?
