Malmsteen strat - Scalloped neck forces you to play wif a light touch, a tad too much pressure & you're out-of-tune!

Low-power stacked single coils sounds brilliant & clear! Every note stands out!

And that vintage vibe!

Check out those scalloping, yum!

Finally.... I mean this is "Other Ibanez guitars", not the ESP/Fender section.

Re: *Best Shred Guitars of All Time*

the rg 770s are the sweetest shred guitars...for the money. the necks on those always felt more stable than the 500 series. cooler inlays, too. no knocking rg500's, tho. have had my share of them.
jackson soloists are damn nice, too. i have my issues with them, but overall, kill.

my 2 favorite shred machines in my arsenal are:

rgt3120tdb
rg770dxvm
