Okay, so I "need" to purchase a new guitar. I currently own a '98 Peavey Wolfgang. Its the reg arch top w/ floyd rose and d-tuna. Stock everything. 22 frets. I am a huge shred / metal / Satriani / modern rock / Hendrix player. I have been looking at several guitars.
MM JP-6 BFR - MusicMan John Petrucci 6 string - Ball Family Reserve (think Fender Custom Shop) - color is black burst with a quilt top. Added bonus: piezo bridge.
Ibanez JS1200 - Candle Apple Red w/ the new p/u's that he has been using on his new albums.
Ibanez JEM7vwh - the "evo" guitar. nuff said in this forum.
*keep in mind that if I by either Ibanez, I will be getting a pro setup (ibanezrules.com, right?)
There is about $1000 difference between the two, I know this, so please, just comment on the fact as to whether or not you have had the chance to play one of these guitars and key differences. I don't have to have a good single coil (tapped) sound, but it would be nice.
