hello everyone! I am new to this wonderful community and i was wondering if i could possibly get some recommendations for my next guitar (forgive me if im posting in the wrong section haha).
I play anywhere from ska to prog, my favorite bands/influences go from Rush, Supertramp, Yes, The Mars Volta, Dream Theater, Opeth, and so on so i was in pursuit of a pretty versatile instrument.
Before i started to stumble on the Ibanez models, I had my mind pretty much set on an ESP Edwards Jimmy Page LP Relic with custom wiring (coil tap, phase, series/parallel) because of its incredible tonal versatility and feel according to the people that own it from various forums. I would be able to get this for roughly 9-1000 USD shipped so that is my price range.
And then i stumbled onto the RG2550 and 2570 from a link my friend sent to me and i said to myself, damn, these look incredibly amazing haha, so i started to look into them more and people said they are pretty versatile so I am now kind of stuck in a pickle haha, but i am open to other suggestions/models
. Thanks so much and have a pleasant day!
ps: oh i have had hands on with the Edwards, but unfortunately my local guitar shops dont carry any of the higher end prestige/ RGs so i cant get my hands on them to try unless they do a special order, where i would needs to pay haha!
