Pros - Prestige, Ibanez Edge, Maple neck, classic dimarzio HSH pickup set, hard case Cons - Most expensive of the 3, I'd quite like an RG without a pickguard.



Pros - No pickguard, cool finish, classic dimarzio HSH pickup set. Maple fretboardm Stainless Steel Frets Cons - nearly as expensive as the Prestige, Edge II Zero (not as recommended as the orignial edge)

All options are solid, unless you won't go crazy on the trem. the edge II should serve you well for a very long time (also don't squeeze the screws too hard). PU's can also change later, the ibz is a bit muddy compared but still very usable for a long time. Infact, personally I don't like the AN for many reasons so getting a guitar with low quality PU's is also a logical option.

Compared, your current guitar is also nice but more importantly a very different beast. If possible, saving longer to have both guitars would be what I'd try to do but sure if not possible I'd atleast spend good time in a music store trying ibanez guitars if I haven't yet.

If possible try each of these and go for the one that feels better in your hands. All are really nice, and surely sound great.

Unfortunately in Ireland I won't get the chance, I may have to go and visit my parents in England to try a few out.

I would like to save for one without getting rid of the LP as it does indeed give me more tonal colours to play with, but I will have to up my musical output to justify it.

If I lived in the UK, I'd buy that Burny from you.

It's a really nice guitar I just think I'm a 25.5 scale person. I like it for the compeletely different tonal difference it gives to my Tele and Tyler. I've got a Epiphone Dot that can give me something more middy and warm if I need it though

Yesterday I bought this guitar from my local music shop. A dreamguitar with the famous sustain option.

Now it´s a pleasure to play for example "Europa" (Santana).
