Is that a Prestige Ibanez? They are killer... I'm not sure if you are aware, but the Edge-Pro II is a cheaper Korean made version of the Edge-Pro. (It is not a better version, as the text on that page might suggest, it isn't an upgrade!) With that said, the Edge-Pro II is still a very good trem. I have one on my Ibanez, and while for ages it would break low E (yeh..Lo E's ...and A's) strings religiously, it seems to have camled down...

The Dime LOOKS killer, but I can't say I've played on one.

But it you that's gonna be playing with it, so I think you should try find some shops that carry them to try 'em out.

The problem is that I don't have access to such guitars in Poland. I really like that Dime, and I think it's good one since the Pantera guitarist plays one (of course more expensive one). The sound is the most important and thing that you can do with guitar. I think I'll stary with the Washburn =]

Well, the best way to find out is to try them, even if that means that you have to take a long ride.

But if that´s absolutely impossible then you should have a look at

http://www.harmony-central.com

especially at:

http://www.harmony-central.com/Guit...ime-2ST-01.html

and

http://www.harmony-central.com/Guit.../RG1570-01.html

Well, after reading that i think i would go for the Ibanez. I don´t like Signature Models anyway, because they are always more expensive than a non-signature model with the same Features !

Go for the Ibanez for sure, they have pretty decent electronics, and their bridges have gotten much better too. Besides that they play like champs.

I have a biased opinion towards the washburn just because my favorite guitar is a washburn.

But the ibanez is probably what you should go for.

Seems I'll go for the www.ranguitars.com, since I would have to pay 22% tax + duty it wouldn't be so cheap anymore. So I'm asking now if it is worth paying 713 $ for the JH-2 model? http://www.ranguitars.com/katalog.htm

you should take the washburn. The ibanez maybe a bit better when playing, but you could do great aswell on the washburn. Wich looks 200 times better, so the total package is better.
