Heyy there GMC,

Im saving for a new guitar and I want your opinion on guitars.
Oke, here are the things that I would like,

A Ibanez
If you all are positief about it, a RG prestige smile.gif
or any other prestige.

A guitar whit a Edge pro trem. I looked it up and it looks like this is the best right now, all other edges kinda sucks, really want your opinion about that one.

price doesnt really matter, but the cheaper the better wink.gif if the quality it good ah.

If you people no any other great guitars that you want to share whit me, feel free to do!
But the most important is, that it has to be a intermediate to higher guitar. biggrin.gif

Cheers !

If you get any guitar with a Floyd Rose, make sure it is an original one, and not a licensed copy. There are a handful of licensed ones that are okay, but they're still not as good as the original. If you already have a guitar with a floating trem, I recommend getting a hard tail, simply because hard tails are way more versatile when it comes to changing tunings.

Edge-Zero bridge is great too. That's what top of the line Ibanez guitars equip since a couple years back at least. I don't know if edge pro is better, but edge zero is good.

Todd here wink.gif Any Ibanez Prestige would be a good choice. I've yet to play a prestige that I didnt' like. The necks are thin and fast, the action is great, and the pickups sound good. On many cheaper Ibanez models, you pretty much need to swap the pickups out as soon as you get the guitar.

As for other options, Schecter makes some really nice guitars but they do feel different than the Ibanez models. So make sure you play whatever you are thinking about buying for at least a bit before buying. Never buy a guitar without putting your hands on it and hearing it through an amp that sounds like what you have at home.

You won't make a mistake with that guitar, but as Todd said, you simply have to try it and see if it works for you. If it does, get it! smile.gif Tell us how the shopping went! smile.gif
