Yes I've played them both. They both sound great for the price, I was just wondering, ya know, wanted another opinion. I just want something to throw around. I have seven other guitars, five of which are not listed in my signature. I was looking for a guitar with a Floyd Rose or a Floyd Rose licensed tremolo...that I don't have, but would love to have one. Chances are, if I don't like it, I'll sell it on ebay or just keep it and switch some parts out...no since in wasting a good bridge, locking nut, and tuners.
My rig this week:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard or Kramer 1984 into my Boss NS-2, DT OD, DT Metal Master, Marshal BluesBreaker II, DT HotRod, Big Muff Pi, Arion Dist. (I know, but it's a good soft distortion), Rocktron Silver Dragon, Danelectro Free Speech, DOD Envelope Filter, Crybaby Wah pedal, MXR Phase 90, DT Multi-Chorus, and sometimes I'll play with my DT RP-100 w/expression pedal. This goes into various amps depending on what sound I want.
