I currently play a Ibanez RG6003FM and I am looking at my next purchase to be in the mid - high end guitar spectrum(1000$+). I was curious to know if there are any alternatives outside of Guitar Center and Sam Ash to be able to try out nicer guitars like an Ibanez Prestige, ESP E-II or Schecter that is not the Omen or C-6. In the local guitar store chains I have been to there are only 1 or 2 mid-high end guitars. The problem is that I do not have enough knowledge or specific taste identified to know exactly what kind of guitar I want. This is why I do not feel comfortable purchasing a guitar online without playing it first. I would really love to try out an Ormsby, Mayones, Skeversen but I am assuming that is not really possible where I am in Raleigh, North Carolina. Is my only option to purchase a guitar online and then decide to return it or sell it later if I don't like it?
