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.
