8) personal preference here. the lp is probably made in memphis (i could be wrong on that) and is an ok guitar. won't stay tuned long and the wood isn"t the best. not really a top quality guitar, especially for the name. the ibanez may be another matter. is it twin humbuckers? and i'm sure it has a whammy bar. probably a more versatile guiar than the lp and i'm sure it plays fast and has great pups.
personally i would get the ibanez. ok, i said it! lp's are heavy and dated--not vintage in my book. i'm an old surf and blues player but i would still get the ibanez. I like the strat syle body and the fact that the axe doesn't weigh 20 lbs.
but i'm an old guy and subject to fits!! let us know what you decide and how you like your new guitar!! 8)

Personally I'd go for the Gibson, but then I don't like contemporary Ibanezes and I dont like locking trems.

:shock:

I kept looking at the date, surely this was mant for April 1st?
Go for the Gibbo, you wouldn't give a dog a rubber bone for its dinner would you?
And a Blues player dropping a LP for a shredders delight? :shock:

In all fairness the question asks more questions than it answers...specifics! What type of playing do you want to learn? for a start?

gimme the hot rod surf guitar dude!! surf's up! the nez is an updated and hot rodded strat in essence. i played surf long before i played the blues. those lp vintage models are low quality do-overs of an old design.
my point was that the quality of the nez is better than the lp. but if you like dinosaurs, than that's fine too!!! :wink:
