I'm new in here, so some info about me. I'm 32 years old, live in France and i play guitar for 15 years. I play mainly metal and my main influences are players like Paul Gilbert, Petrucci, Vai, well, the usual suspects.
I have a serios GAS for an Ibanez rgr465m or rg3xxv, my first Ibanez, moving from a Fender Telecaster and a Jackson DK2M. This guitar's HS config and the maple neck kills me...
Now, as i live in Europe, i can get the Ibanez rgr465m for around 400 Euros and rg3xxv for about 600. The only difference between the 2, AFAIK
, is the tremolo. I will use the tremolo for the ocasional dive bombs, but my playing style is more around the Michael Lee Firkins style (some nuances on notes). So, i will use the tremolo but not abuse it all the time.
So what do you think? Do you think the 200 Euros price difference between the 2 is worth spending?
Is the (rgr465m) Edge III that bad? Ok, the Edge-Zero II is better (no experience with any, this is just from what i read), but is the Edge III fine on it's own and will get a killer shred guitar with rgr465m or is it better to wait to get the cash for the rg3xxv?
Thanks for your opinions!
