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 "Sam.....you 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?
