Ehm, I got something to say bout that:D
That SG Faded, seems better than it is. I've tried it and it isn't cool biggrin.gif It's alot cheaper, and you can notice it. Worse finishing, and stuff. Alot of people, including me actually prefer the Epiphone G-400 over the GIbson SG Faded Special. Just my point o view


The LP is a little different though. It's a pure mahogany body, with a chambered hollow cavity. It gives it a very unique sound. If you make sure to try it out before you buy it, you can find a great guitar from that series. Very dependable and great sound. The SG I wouldn't go for though.

Yeah the faded series arent finished as well as the studios which are the next models up from these really, but that is reflected in the price and you still get an SG or a LP, personally my views on epi's arent great as they are purposely designed and built to be inferior to Gibson which is criminal as they have a great history of their own, the Epi casino is a famous and great guitar in its own right, the Epi gibson copies are, well, copies!

Course its just my two cents, but any of the instruments mentioned would be preferable to the three at the top!

Schecter C-1 ATX FR looks great, and it sure has great specs. I'm not sure what guitar is better, so it is best to try them all. I would say the mentioned one has probably a great sound for metal, blackouts are great pickups and the rest of the hardware is HQ as well.

My vote goes out for Schecter too. I do have the C-1 Classic (Antique Amber) and it's pretty much perfect at what it is.
No floyd rose means far less pain in the ass and things that can go wrong. But somehow it doesn't sound all that metal to me wink.gif But this is heavily dependent on your taste, amp and so on.

May be you should also look at the 7 String Schecters especially the Loomis. If this is what you are after.

I wouldn't buy any non prestige Ibanez anymore. Imo they're not comparable to the Schecters in this price segment. Don't get me wrong Ibanez makes some nice entry level and some nice pro level guitars, but what's in between doesn't seem to be all that great. The cheap PRS guitars seem to be quite well made too, at least the one I played. wink.gif

Generally I'd say you should first decide on what features you want:
- Do you want or need a floyd rose?
- Do you want 7 strings?
- Do you want active pickups?

I wouldnt recommend that spesific PRS. It looks nice, but it feels cheap. Never tried that Ibanez thouugh, so cant comment on that.
But the Schecter ROCKS!

But still, there's alot of different opinions on that PRS so the best thing is just finding a way of trying each one out.

That PRS is really great, big + for having
real pickup switch instead of pot-switch
which they instal very often, tricky to use imo.

Can't tell which one is better tho, depends. biggrin.gif
