Egen8 vs S570b
Hey guys, a couple of months ago I bought myself an ESP guitar for my birthday, and I have now realized (sadly) that it's not right for me. I traded it back to the store and got some nifty store credit to go have a ball with.
Now comes my issue, I'm finding myself torn between the S570b and the Egen8. I've found ups and downs with each model. If it helps any my main aim is to play satriani-esque music.
I'm attracted to the S mainly because of the lower price tag and the ZR bridge, which I understand to be superior to the Edge III. I have no love for either of the available colors (not that big a deal), or the inlays, but I would like coil tapped pups.
As far as the Egen8 goes, I see the appearance, coil tapped pups, and thinner body as positives. The slightly elevated price, the removal of some egen18 features (such as the scalloped 21-24 frets), and Edge III trem is cause for concern. I'm reasonably confident that I can easily swap the Edge III for Edge Pro when I want to though.
Anything you guys can tell me about either of these guitars would help out a lot.
