Suggestions?

I've been looking the past few months for a new guitar since I'm making a new band for fun mostly but I need a good metal guitar with tremolo and 24 frets.

In all my looking the I've taken a liking to Jackson and Ibanez guitars.But I haven't gotten the chance to try one for an extended period of time.I need a guitar that can give me great metal tone,comfort and reliability.

I'm also open for any other guitar brand suggestions.

I've looked most into this jackson: http://www.music123.com/guitars/jac...c-guitar/h76638

And this Ibanez: http://www.music123.com/guitars/iba...electric-guitar

All suggestions are appreciated

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

I like Ibanez but I wouldn't get one with an Edge III trem, and I believe the RG350DX you linked does. The design of the trem itself is fine but it's made of cheap, soft metal which will wear out quickly under heavy use.

Ibanez definitely, but I agree a used Prestige S would be the way to go.
