You said that nicer ibanez's normally come stock with dimarzios, can u point me to some links where i can check them out..

Just check Ibanez.com. You should find everything you need to know.

but def was saying something about they used to use engl stuff in the "stings of conscience" days. but i'm not sure.

Yeah, they used Engl back in the day, or at least, one of their guitarist did, I saw them before the strings of conscience came out, when it came out, I allready had it for two months to preview for inside knowledge (www.insideknowledge.net)

on of those guys used a JCM900 live too, the small guy, I have no idea what his name is. their bassist played Ibanez BTB5's both and Hartke, well the four times I saw them, he played that. maybe he's upgraded by now since they've been getting a lot of attention in the last two years.
I must say the tone of 'the oncoming storm' is pretty different.
I only talked to Trevor a couple of times (the vocalist) he's cool, when they played in Arnhem last year he came up to me and talked for a bit, he reminded my face, and the first time I talked to him was in the end of 2000 when they where recording 'the strings of conscience' so that was pretty darn cool of him.

Loads of metalcore bands seem to be changing tone every now and then, which is weird. Caliban (germany's best metalcore band) still uses engl though, but they've changed their tone quite a bit. their new album doesn't appeal to me at all.

as for Terror, they use esp's, those EC models and viper model bass guitars. don't recall what amps they used, I remember one mesa on stage, the allmost inevidable recto. it was about a year ago, at Groezrock, good stuff. better then Hatebreed by far. shame they didn't bring Freddy Madball for some extra vocals, he does some vocals on 'one with the underdogs' too, the song is 'I'll find my way' Madball style, fucking ownage, like allways!

I dont get how most of the guitars have the same pick ups, i would think they would be better for more money.

I dont know, Ibanez must think that you are going to change them anyways or something. Which is stupid.

The pick ups (pups) are not where all the money is at. A guitar may have the same pups as another but cost more since it has better hardware and construction. If you want EMG then you will have to learn to put them in. It isn't hard and there are lots of threads here that give detailed directions about how to do it, plus EMG.com tells you how to do it too. Just buy a Ibanez RG and some EMG's and do it yourself. It's easy!

I would say that your first one is the best, IMO. Depending on what you want in a guitar should determind what model you get and the cost. I know you don't know that much about Ibanez guitars but I hope you clearly see the difference in the two guitars you posted. The first is the one I would get. I see no problems with it and it would take EMG's easy.

The 370 would be the better choice.

But the rg550 would be the best

Well you could just leave it in there but you should never have it connected with the EMG's, which means it would be there for looks and died. You could also get a sigle coil EMG and replace the middle pup and then use it with the other EMG's.

So if i leave it in there for looks, the channel switch will only work for the emgs right?
lol im kind of slow on this guitar stuff..

I was reading about the 370dx and they have flat and fast Wizard and Wizard II necks or something like that, is that decent?

Wizard II neck -- 25.5 scale neck is 2mm thicker than the super-thin, super-flat Ibanez Wizard.

Maple neck material
thanks

Well both of those necks feel the same to me, so if one is 2 mm thicker then who cares. Wizard whatever necks are wonderful. I think you would like that Ibanez with EMG, and yes, if you wire the guitar for just the EMG then the middle pup will never be activated. It's only purpose would be to fill space and look nice. What you could do to simplify things is just replace the 5 way blade switch with a 3 way blade switch while installing the EMG's. That way you wouldn't have 2 points on the switch that are died and the EMG's will always be on as though the guitar only had 2 pups.

im talking bout a good sound, with nice cleans.

BIATCH!! I start to dislike EMG's more and more.

My one guitar with the 81 sounds so fake to me now, where my other guitars with Duncans and Dimarzio's sound organic, warm... just all around good.
