Hello guys, I went to used guitar shop afterschool today. I chose to buy an old but feels like new Schechter Omen 6. My dad had me to try this Ibanez Axion RGA61L. It was in good condition and has good sound plus good price, but it has lower sustain and harder to bend than the Scechter Omen (need some set up maybe?). It also had different feels of neck then Schecter type neck.

Ibanez Axion is rare thing in our country though it was made here. Mom, dad, and I have seen some review, but no local review, and they said it was a good guitar. Anyone has some opinion for this guitar? Is it worthed to buy? Because it is still pricey on used. My mom hasn't trust me enough to use fancy expensive guitars.😆

Here's one of the review that I watched, and me trying to play with this fancy guitar.

Thank you.

    Ibanez generally makes high-quality instruments with a focus on technical or speed players. The Axion label amps that up. For their price point, they are very high quality instruments. The differences you feel could be setup or possibly string gauge - both will have a 25.5 scale length, which is mostly what affects bending (outside of string gauge), so there would be very little (if any) difference otherwise.

    If you like the guitar and can afford it, it's probably going to be worth it.

    Thank you so much for the review.
    Does it has different type of neck than Schechter? I don't know how to describe it, but it feels different.
    Thanks, I'll tell my parents about this.

    The shape of the neck is different. The Ibanez is thinner by 1mm and has a slightly flatter radius on the fretboard (15.1" vs 14" on the Schecter). The Ibanez neck is also 1mm wider at the nut.

    These differences largely come down to personal preference - one is not BETTER than the other because of these things, they're just DIFFERENT and each may fit a set of hands better depending on the hands.

    I know right?!! I am missing PG so much. I hadn't been doing much guitar practice as I had exams to prepare for but they are done now so I am ready to learn guitar!
    Hopefully they are fixed soon 🤞🏻
