Anyone own a N4 and an Esp GL?

I'll be in the market soon for a new guitar but not sure what to go for.I've got it done to either an N4,Esp Skulls and Snakes/Kami or a Floral Jem.
I've plenty of experience with Jems but none with the others and as there aren't any dealers anywhere near me I'd like to know how they compare to each other.
Any help would be great

you'd probably get more responses if you were in the non-ibanez forum. however, there is already a thread about the n4 that is fairly recent:

Cool Re: Anyone own a N4 and an Esp GL?

ESP skulls & snakes is a great axe! it has seymour duncan screaming demon in the bridge ESP sh1 single in the neck position, it has a thick neck profile and really tall frets, playability is ok but the neck takes some getting used to unless you like chunky necks that is...

It's a hot pickup with spiked trebs and highs! great for those Pinch harmonics.
it is great for leads!!!

This is how Seymour Duncan describes it:

SH-12 'Screamin Demon' Humbucker --This pickup was designed in the Custom Shop for George Lynch. It has the big open sound of our '59 Model with a little less bite and a little more growl. The tone is big, percussive and still bites without being harsh. It uses alnico magnets and yields medium output. 4 Conductor cable.

Think I want one of those! Going to look for the older model with the stratesque headstock when I'm ready
