Both have pros and cons but the big ones I see are: Ibanez has Bartolini Electronics Peavey Grind is almost half the price I like that they are both 35" scale, neckthrough, and have a slim, fast neck. ---------- I'd probably buy new simply because I know what I want and they are both still in production but if I can find used I would not hesitate. Here's the thing: I have always loved Ibanez since the day I played a GSR. I have an older but nice SR and I love the neck so naturally BTB would be the way to go for me. However the other day I played a Cirrus and a couple of Peavey Grinds and i was in love / GAS. They were very similar to ibanez necks in a good way, the looks were killer, and the prices competitive. ---------- What would you do?
