The M-II DX is only like 20,000-30,000 yen cheaper btw.
Same with the SS ( Standard Series) M-II bolt on is maybe around 200-300 bucks cheaper compared to the neck thru.
Again, I'm comparing it with dollar to dollar , for example :
The SS M-II bolt on with duncans is around 1100-1300 here.
with the same 1100/1300, you can get ibanez RG 655.
the M-II is equipped with original floyd rose, CTS pots, CRL switch, switchcraft jack.
Well Ibanez..... ? you know.
not saying the parts in Ibanez is inferior than ESP, but I'd guess you got the point.
and the built quality of the SS ESP is not bad after all.
yes, you may get lemon among those too, but don't we also sometimes got lemon with ibanez?
