Iīm from Germany and this is my first post in this forum, so sorry for newbie mistakes.
At the moment I play a newer Jackson DX10D for about 460 Euro (~460$) with 2 Duncan Designed Pickups and Floyd Rose Trem and an older Charvel with active Reflex Pickups and Schaller Floyd Rose Trem which I bought on ebay for about 200 Euro (~200$). Both are great guitars but anytime I want a little bit better guitar.
Jackson would be interesting with the US Guitars but these ones are too expensive. ESP LTD has a very intersting range of guitars in the 400 series but the delivery times are too long with the EMG Pickups. Ibanez has also great guitars in the Prestige series for example the 2620QM guitar but this one is a little bit too expensive because I also want a new tube amp!
I like the
- Ibanez RG 1550 (germany) or 1570
- Ibanez RGT42FMDR
I donīt realy need a Singlecoil so I prefer the RGT42FMDR but I donīt know if this one is also better than the RG 1570.
The RGT42FMDR has a Mahagony Body above the RGT42PB but the rest is the same and above the RG1570 the RGT42FMDR has INF Humbucker and a Neck-Thru Construction, while the RG1570 has V Humbucker and a bolt-on neck.
Which guitar would you recommend me and why? Or would you recommend me an other guitar? Or would you advise me to save more money for a better guitar and play with the Jackson and/or Charvel?
I resolved to buy a Tube Amp like Engl Thunder / Screamer or Peavey Triple X and so I need a guitar for heavy stuff like Rammstein but I donīt want to need too much money, about 600 - 750 Euro.
