Cool. Thanks for the info. I played shred and metal when I was younger (17) and was an Ibanez user (RG550). Im now in my early 40's and play mostly blues and classic/hard rock. I wanted some diversity in my collection as I didnt have a guitar with a floys rose. I'm really looking forward to this guitar. I've always heard they were heads and shoulders above Ibanez. Again, Thanks.
