I know, it’s a question of playing both and see which one I like best, and I will do that next weekend. I just wanted your opinion. Both have Mahogany bodies (natural finishes), bolt on Maple necks, and the same price. The Jackson has a sincronized tremolo and a rosewood fingerboard, while the Ibanez has a fixed bridge and a New Zealand pine fretboard (a first for me). Which one do you think would be better for Metal through an Orange Micro Dark?
