Can i find these at a good price?

Im looking into getting an HSH super strat type of guitar, ive always just played my fender strat which i really love, but lately i have been getting into some heavier types of music and have also wanted to have that tone of a neck humbucker. im looking for really nice playability as well
ive been looking a lot into ibanez and ive found my two top picks

an Ibanez RG3550MZ (white)
http://www.ibanez.com/ElectricGuitars/model-RG3550MZ

and an ibanez jem (white), nothing special just a plain old jem

im looking to spend around 500-700 and im fine with used

would it be possible for me to find either of theses used around that price or am i just completely insane for asking?

also on that note, are there any guitars in that range with similar specs that you would recommend?

You'd be better (best) off just getting a used RG1570 (~$500) and then putting in exactly whatever pups you want.
