Mamma mia - I'm sure I'll follow this thread closely. Am a wannabe guitarist. Actually have been for quite a while

Very difficult to choose 1 name and 1 solo.

1. Knopfler, Page, Blackmore, Gilmour
2a. Hotel California - Eagles (original - not the subsequent unplugged version)
2b. Wasted Sunsets - Deep Purple
2c. Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits
2d. Freebird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
2e. Wish you were here - Pink Floyd

and lots and lots more ... which I am sure I will remember once the 20 minute window to edit this post is over !!

Okay, Bhpians. I need some help. I'm buying my first electric guitar and I've narrowed down to these two.

Ibanez GRG170DX



Ibanez JS100



Please help??

I'll be playing mostly metal like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer but there'll also be the ocassionally the classic rock like Scorpions, Pink Floyd and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

How long since you've been playing guitar, dude?

Good chioce anyway, since Ibanez guitars have a good metal tone, which will be good for the bands you wanna cover.

The GRG170 has got 24 frets, while the JS has 22 frets. The JS though, has smaller frets, so that's gonna be more comfy playing leads. So it depends on what you want to play (rhythms or lead).

Either way, dont think there is gonna be much of a difference in feel. You could go in for either of them....

Do let us know when you buy one....Cheers.

I'd go with the Ibanez. I feel it's more versatile.

My all time favourite is still the Strat.

So who all are in bands here? I used to have one a long time ago.
