i visited da only shop in my city to check some guitar as i want to buy one. i tried fender squier, grg270 , esp viper 50(it looks like one i forgot to ask the model no.) fender gave very weak so rejected but i liked both grg 270 and esp and cost nearly same around 16k and he shopkeeper usually gives discount that might reduce it by another 1000. esp had a fixed bridge but great,warm,fat and ambient tone while ibanez had whamy but tone didnot appear as mellodic n ambient. Dis wat what my newbie ear cud observe. SO DOES A FATTER TONED GUITAR GIVES A BETTER DISTORTION (ESP) OR SHUD I GO FOR WHAMMY ?? HOW OFTEN U USE WHAMMY INSTED OF BEND?
