i dont like the lower end ibanezs that come with INF pickups

so go for a rg prestige if you want good quality imo =]

but don't just stick to ibanez, look through all the companys that suit your style for example Jackson and ESP

i dont really understand ibanez edge pros (can anyone explain? rolleyes.gif ) i heard they are good but the lower end models (just like floyd rose) go outa tune easily so i hear.
so if you gonna buy a geetar with a floyd rose make sure its an original floyd rose. the licenced ones are made cheaper and tend to give up.. just like the one on me rg has *sigh* mellow.gif



just remember floating bridges can be quite a hassle if you dont know how to use it/ set it up properly so make sure you do your research. also if you wanna detune your guitar it can be a bit of a biatch tongue.gif (string/spring tensions and all that hassle)

Go to a devoted music/guitar shop and spend some time jamming on different brands.

Decide what you like to play and buy it or come back here with questions about a brand you want to buy.

No point in buying something solely based on a recommendation cause you might not like to play it!

Well Triviums sound is largely in there amps, cause they use Jackson, Dean, Gibson, And The John Petrucci 7 String Models.

The INF S3 and S4 Pickups are great in my oppinion, sounds great and are very versatile for all styles.

I mean types of guitar brands, not bands smile.gif

Pick up an ESP and play for a while, then pick up an Epi, then an Ibanez etc etc until you find what you really want to pay for and play.

You have to be comfortable playing the guitar you have and you have to like it. Both of which are hard to discover without trying some guitars first!

When choosing an axe, it has to "FIT" you or it's going to sound and feel like crap. Trust me when I say that this is different for everybody. I always wanted an American Strat just like Clapton, so I went to buy it and while I was there I tried the Jackson D3 "an import". I went home with the Jackson. Take advise from the people that gives you info and go to the music shop and play with different guitars. That’s the only way to truly decide. wink.gif
