The Relic has an OFR, the others are Washburn licensed ...

having said that, they dont feel too bad at all, not Lo-Pro Edge or anything but nice enough, and the OFR feels a bit better ...

Re: From Ibanez to Washburn

I have never brought myself to buy an N4 because they don't have 24 frets but I played one at this one shop next to my mall and I changed my mind, I just don't have the money now

Re: From Ibanez to Washburn

I've always loved the look of those Paduak models, but i have to say that black one might be my favorite.
I'd like to try one of the newer models with the H-S-S config and tone knob, too bad they have the worst looking pickguards ever lol

peace

I am not a big Fan of the N5 or N6, for the same reasons, i think they look wierd ...

Yeah, the Padauk is nice, but it is sooooo heavy, heavier than a Les Paul, and holding it by the neck with one hand, gets VERY uncomfortable after a few seconds. The Black one is alder, like the Relic, and so much lighter, and it sounds fantastic, i only play through a 75W Line6 Spider III in my room, but it screams.

EDIT: Here is a better look at the Padauk
