Has anyone had a chance with either of these new axes yet? I'm considering one, but can't find anyone with stock to check em out.
I just got done recording all my guide tracks with my RG7321. Great axe, but looking for something proper to record the real tracks with.
Edge Zero is a terrible trem IMO. The original RG 1527 is not the best for rhythm guitar tone to be honest (I'm saying this as an owner) unless it's loaded with active pickups, because basswood just doesn't bring the chunk.
Get the Jackson. It already comes loaded with good pickups.
The Ibanez doesn't.
People can bash on EMGs all they like, but there's a reason why they are such a popular studio option and it's because they just track so well because of their tightness and controlled bottom end.
The Jackson also has a good trem, while the Ibanez has the pathetic excuse of a so called "improvement" over the Edge Pro.
