What is your next guitar after your #1 Ibanez

If Ibanez is your main axe, what is your next guitar you use the most?

I can't honestly vote in this poll because my Ibanez Artcore AS73, which I love to death, is truly my #2 guitar. My #1 guitar of the last dozen years has been a 2001 ESP/LTD Viper 301 with aftermarket Bigsby B50 I bought last year.

I don't think, overall that mid-priced ESP/LTDs are any "better" than the similarly priced Artcores I love, it's just that being a solidbody, the ESP/LTD Viper 301 I have comes with me on dog walks, to the beach, to work, and in my car and the durable nature of any guitar without acoustic chambers/top/back/sides makes it a better choice for going everywhere as the instant, carry-on guitar wherever I happen to be at.

Had my solidbody been an RG or similar Ibanez solidbody and my hollowbody was an X-Tone ESP (an excellent guitar in every way), then by all means the Ibanez RG would get carried around more and thus get more airplay.

I guess you are like me with an Ibanez as a #2 guitar.

That guitar you have is gorgeous.

Re: What is your next guitar after your #1 Ibanez

There's a strong brand loyalty for Ibanez and if I had to buy over again, I could easily fall into this camp.

With unlimited funds, S and RG prestige guitars would be nice, Ibanez 7 and 8 stringed guitars, highly flamed Artist, Scofield, and Satch 2400 to round out collection. If it was just two, probably RG prestige and Scofield, or Satch and Scofield. But with my funds, that would be JS100 as my #1 and probably Scofield-looking sunburst AS93/sunburst Artstar AS153 as my #2

MusicMan JP6 with or without piezo. As i am on a quest for the perfect guitar for me/my hands etc, i have come to the conclusion this might be it.

#1: My '01 RG570GN.
#2a: RG550RF 20th.
#2b: RG1570MRR

I rotate the most between these three but the RG570 is still tops in my book.
