IGTIANS I Respect and Admire:
....lol.....nouman may be right ...........i might b building castles in air........hopefully its in my possession by the end of this month or beginning of this month........
are you sure u want it tho? have u played it and stuff...cus for that price u can get much better stuff abroad..
well the list price on musiciansfriend is around 32k and on baajao its around 38k so the difference is not worth the trouble.......besides i don't have a credit card.........i know it seems odd.the only ibanez i have played was a rg 350dx...it was good........so i am assuming the prestige will be better.....what do u think of esp......the furtados(goa) guy said they will have all esp products as well as takamine by the 1st week of april........do u think i should try em first?how does esp compare with ltd products?
well LTDs are like lower end ESPs....they are pretty good...nice for harder styles of music. Ive got an RG350DX for sale. So if you spread the word id really appreciate it...its like out-of-box . Never been used :P. I think its best you try a guitar before buying it...but if ur stuck in the situation i am...its your call..
dude i understand your plight i am trying to sell my kustom sound amp for the last 6 months so that i can upgrade to a laney.:D.........did u try out an ltd?....this is the way i figure it out.....a Japanese esp will cost me at least 50k but i am getting a Japanese ibanez for 38k ....well damn good......i need an axe with a small heel joint and a floyd that stays in tune no matter what......all ltds come with lic. floyds that don't have good reviews....and i am not a big fan of emg's.....i had recommended ur guitar to a friend who was in the market for a guitar with a floyd....but he got a month old kramer for 14k........however the there is a lot of difference bet his kramer which retails at 19k and my kramer which retailed at 25k......a lot of cost cutting is evident..
well if u dont mind paying customs there is an ESP for less than 30k...i was planning to import one before i decided on a Schecter...these guitars are called Edwards...made in japan by ESP for sale only in japan..
www.ishibashi.co.jp (best place to buy it from)
check it out and let me know...they are called "Edwards"
The Edgepro is the best Floating trem in terms of tuning stability I've ever seen. You don't need to cut the ball ends off. My friend's RG2550E is currently tuned to Drop C, with 10's (for Bad Horsie, with all the crazy whammy stunts) and it has not needed any fine tuning for the past 2 weeks (one gig and 8 jam sessions). Besides, its the best neck i've ever played on.

The difference of Edwards from ESP is that Edwards are produced on non-ESP factories in Japan and are generally considered to be lower quality than ESP and less costly. Edwards guitars are now licensed for distribution in Russia."........
so quality may b on par with ltd's.........heard that schecter necks are not very thin ala gibson SG.
does bajaao accept paymet by dd/vpp?
bajaao will...and the quality of Edwards is much higher than LTDs....its between LTD and ESP and Navigators are higher than ESPSs
The guy wants a thin neck and trem stability. No guitar for even twice the price will be better in those aspects than a Prestige Ibanez RG.
That being said, I really loathe the low end Ibanez guitars, so I'm not an Ibanez worshiping neanderthal. In fact, if it had been available at that time, I would have bought the Squire stagemaster over the RG320FM that i have now. It cost me 10.5k more than the squire would have. Some changes in wiring and pickups would make it wayyy better than the Ibanez. Of course eventually I would change the trem too.
hey laney/nouman thanks for the advice....laney i might have a friend who might b interested in ur guitar.....will try to convince him to buy your guitar.........are u willing to ship it to goa?........m not sure if i will b coming for maiden concert but if i do come can i check it out? regarding pups......the general opinion is that dimarzio and ibanez is a better combo than sd & ibanez......might need some more advice from u ppl........
i think the neck and the neck joint is more comfortable of an ibanez than a stagemaster........by changing the pups and trem u will have invested 15k....
