Re: ESP VS Ibanez!


well, if i could have any guitar, it'd be a toss up between a j-custom, or a custom esp just like greg howe's before he moved over to suhr. i havent played many esps tho. but, if something looks and sounds good enough, ill play it until my hands get used to it.

Re: ESP VS Ibanez!


Both companys make good guitars, unfortunately the esp line has been fubared by the ltd series which are utter crap imho. I have played two ltd's that i would have taken home with my out of possibly 100 plus that ive played and or setup. I tend to shudder when i see the trems come in, in utter disbeleif that they continue to sell the things. Having said that high end esp = better than jackson or at least dead even. If they had better neck profiles/tremolo systems they could hang with ibanez

Re: ESP VS Ibanez!


ESP makes excellent guitars and a lot of different models too, they have Les Paul style models, vintage Strats, Mirage models, V and RR style models too and so much more. Basically whatever you are looking for, ESP has something for you. Horizons and Mirages are superb guitars and ESP's custom shop is willing to do anything you want and the quality is top notch.

So if I had to choose between these two guitar companies it would be hard choose since I like both very very much but I think I would go with ESP.

Re: ESP VS Ibanez!


ESP - right now you can get the ESP MII (RG15xx/25xx equivalent) in 3 solid colours (alder), 3 stains (ash) and in Camo, neck thru option, choice of maple or rosewood fretboards on the stains (ebony on the solid colours) and a choice of SD or EMG pickups and coil tap on the tone knob.
Also ESP have a custom shop and are not affraid to make "grown up" guitars

Re: ESP VS Ibanez!


I'm seriously considering getting an MII Custom shop with fully scalloped neck and custom graphics. That, or i might dish ot on one of those Queensryche MII's i've seen on e.bay recentley. As an owner of a jem, i can honestley say i prefer the MII's over it for overall playability and sound, looks wise it's pretty hard to beat the 7vwh but i can cope with that

EDIT: damn, paste those links into your address bar and the word e-b-a-y replaces the *s

Both brands are my favourite so I'd probably give them a tie. ESP's are probably more expensive then Ibanez's these days though.

Re: ESP VS Ibanez!


Ibanez, for they're innovation, comfort, playablity, no evil skull and bad-ass flames image, and unique finishes. (textured, swirls, puzzles, etc.)

If I were to rank the most common rock guitars it would be
ibanez > Schecter > ESP > Dean > Jackson > Bc rich but thats only from the high end production models that I tried, not thier customs.

The Urban Camo has been discontinued here in the US, it is only a custom shop finish now, and the price of them have been going up here.

I own an ESP MII Urban Camo, and I've got to say it is probably one of the best playing and sounding guitars I've ever laid my hands on.

Re: ESP VS Ibanez!


If you were talking about the old Ibanez (pre 94ish) then ESP wouldn't be in with a chance. As it stands Ibanez are bland and boring whereas ESP seem to be pushing the envelope more so it's actualy a very tough one to call.

Re: ESP VS Ibanez!






I'd love to own one, but I bet it's very expensive. Ibanez prices are a bit more realistic.
