Hey guys, I was just browsing the forum like usual and I was reading up on Misha's new Jackson build and he was talking about how different pieces of wood of different density and quality affect a guitar. Obviously I knew this all before but for some reason the thought popped into my head: How good can a super low priced guitar be? I have a $300 Ibanez Gio RGA made of mahogany with stock pickups and I love it. It plays and sounds great. Comparing it to say an EBMM JPXI, theres only a few things I notice about playability (Noticably, a smoother fretboard, better cutaway, lower action on the MM). Maybe it was just chance that I possibly got a sweet piece of mahogany? It just makes me wonder though, is my guitar really possibly in the same league as maybe an Ibanez Premium or $800 Schecter, ESP etc.?
