Re: Not accepting sustainer installation installs.
Why do most metal guitar players use ESP, Dean, Jackson, usually a one piece guitar with active pickups. Would have Dimebag Darrell sounded as metal on a Jem? Probably not.
The guy was a big fan of Steve Vai actually, he mentioned Vai style in some of his interviews, yet he never played an RG.
Would Metallic and Megadeth sound as metal on Ibanez RGs? Why do they play ESP and Deans with active pickups?
These bands aren't considered very heavy in the metal world either.
Most metal bands out there are playing on either, ESP, Dean, Jackson, most of them one piece and active PUPs. Obviously, this combination delivers a heavier tone, otherwise, why are all these bands using them?
I never said that Jems and RGs can't do metal, but if I already have this style of guitar, I'd rather have something that is different. I was never a fan of strats and gibsons. Wouldn't mind having one if given for free, but I wouldn't pay for one.
I just want something different from Vai's guitars. I like the Solar guitars.
They give you a lot of stuff for $999. Stainless steel frets, titanium truss rod, roasted maple, Evertune bridge and they look more aggressive than a Jem.
To me, a jem and its RGs children are too pretty looking, they just don't have that metal look to them. Look at the PIA
Can you imagine a metal band playing with a PIA on stage. It's also about the looks I guess. The ESP and Deans have those metal shapes and look to them, maybe that's why so many metal artists prefer them.
