    in my opinion...stay away from Ibanez in India....i had a really hard time with them .......if i were you id add ESP to my list and wait for 15 days.....they are coming to www.bajaao.com soon ......just stay as far from Ibanez as possible and you wont regret it...

    All 3 are good but get an Ibanez only if ur within ur into the 17-18k range ya u could wait for the ESP's too

    @laneymaney DUDE calm down,yes uv had problems but its just that you werent careful while buying it and that the shop hoodwinked u with a dud !!!

    Right said Devil. i feel sorry for him though. very much. i would love to own a ibanez but hmm right now i am off too ESP's ah.

    @Iriquta - what ever you want to buy do see if it plays good(dont bother which maker it is not too particular, all that matters is if the final product is great go for it) and have a thorough check at your guitar(just in case u dont meet up with the same problem as laney sorry for the dude).
    All the best.

    ^^ DUDE i checked out the pix within ur album ........The crack is real bad also the nut is BADLY setup....Im sorry for you.But i seriously advice you to sell it off at some real low rate soon coz, i think if the crack is widening at a constant rate then itll really go deep within the next 6 months and render it useless.

    And dont warn people of Ibanez..............Warn people of that Sapthaswara music store you bought the guitar from !!!

    i can sell the parts separately on ebay for about 300$ without selling the body
    thats my last resort

    hey laney just checked the photos. man thats some crack u got there near the nut.
    just one question, Are u sure that didnt drop the guitar or if something happend without ur knowledge? cause thats not really common mate. either the shop duped u in buying it or some thing dropped on it.
    This will always be a probelm when u are adjusting the truss,change string guage or do make any adjustment. think u better sell it of as u said.

    that idol will (supposedly) feel similar to an sg. thin body, 24.75" scale, 22 frets
    it has a basswood body so the sound shouldn't be too bad. as compared to the wi64 (which is 18k online in the us), it has a bolt on neck not set neck (wi64 and above), standard tuners.

    i'm trying my best to get me a wi64 or wi64d from the us by mid next year :)

    thats a pretty decent price tag for the ESP's mate. Do try other guitars too. No idea about washburn cause never tried them though i heard they are really good too. all the best go take your time in the shop play as long as u like then decide. all the best.
