Re: EGEN8 or EGEN18
Hello, I'm new to this site.
I'm currently in the market for an S series, but I too need to keep my hands out of my pockets, being that I recently bought a used Ibanez GB200 ($2500). I'm looking for a cost effective alternative to the higher priced models, and this guitar looks like a likely candidate. I'm primarily into McLaughlin/Di Meola type playing, so the tremolo specifications aren't an issue, being that I rarely use it. I primarily use the neck pup for solos, so there's no need to swap the entire pup setup - if at all.
I have an RG470AH with a Wizard III neck, which is wide, thin and flat - great for chords as well as leads. The EGEN8 is noted to have a Wizard II. What's the difference between the Wizard III and Wizard II - is the Wizard II as flat as the III?!? The difference in necks alone may be the deciding factor whether I order this guitar or not. And is the action on the EGEN8 fairly low out of the box?!?
