Re: new guitar help me decide

No Ibanez guitars on your list? Remeber this is Jemsite...lol ;o) I wouldn't give up on Ibanez guitars with trems - your rg350 may have had trem issues and with an $800 budget you'll be able to buy a nicer Ibanez model since your rg350 was probably only in the $400 USD price range. There are also some very nice fixed bridge Ibanez guitars in your price range - check out the Ibanez RGA72QM - very nice guitar and under your budget.

Regarding your list, I haven't tried the BC Rich guitars listed but out of all of the guitars on your list my initial reaction would be to go try out the Jackson guitars first becuase I would be a little leary of buying a Korean made guitar....and I've liked the Jacksons that I've played.

Some people love ESP guitars, and there are some good reviews out there, but the ESP LTD guitars that I've played did not sound that good to me...didn't love the necks either...but that's just an opinion.

There are sooooo many options in your price range. Quite a few nice Ibanez models in that price range...Godin guitars are very good bang for your buck...

But out of your list I would try the Jacksons first....just an opinion ) good luck & have fun shopping )

From your list I'd go with the Jackson DK2T. And I'd try to trade someone for black/cream zebra pups cause they look so fricken awesome. It'd be a beast.

Re: new guitar help me decide

unfortunately, nobody can help you decide. I recommend heading to the music store and find one that "feels right", and buy it.

Re: new guitar help me decide

I'm a little confused. What does "some really cool colours" have to do with the guitar at all? It has NOTHING to do with the guitar's playability.

I once played a friend's Queensryche Empire guitar. It looked cool. I took pictures playing it. But I would NEVER want to own it, because it was horrible to play. I personally wouldn't take "cool colors" into account. But that's just me.

the cool colours is just 1 of the good features about the bc rich gunslinger,there good guitars aswell as good looks.i could paint a fender squire a cool desert yellow colour but it doesnt mean its a good guitar,i think you better seek medical advice about being confused,might be your age
