What's your current gear and what type(s) of music do you want to play?

Is $200 your maximum budget?

I would go with the Jackson unless you could increase your budget a little bit and go with the RG series instead of the GRX series with Ibanez.

I'd try to find something on craigslist. Shopping for a new guitar with only $200 is kinda worthless if you already happen to have a plank with a magnet and some strings or anything better. You might get a decent used guitar for $200.

This. If that's your budget, go used. New guitars that cheap are almost always crap. That said, there's one guitar just above that price that I have personally played, and was quite impressed with. The Schecter C-6 Deluxe. It's their new entry-level guitar, goes for $250. We just got one in at the store I work in, and I was legitimately shocked by how good the frets feel, at that price. Factory setup was on par with the $800+ Jacksons and Fenders. And the stock pickups are pretty decent. Sounds and feels leagues better than the JS22 Jacksons we have. Doesn't look bad, either. We don't carry Ibanez, so I don't know about their low end guitars, but I've heard they're not great. If there's a Schecter dealer in your town, see if they've got one of those you can try out.

Oh ok so it's your first guitar?

If you're ok with used MF has a used ibanez rg421 for just under $200. Might be worth considering. If you don't want to go used, that's your prerogative, but I haven't tried the two guitars you listed. They should both be fine for metal, though, I'd have thought (though at that price they're not going to be the best guitars ever, it has to be said).

Thanks for the tip. Ended up pulling the trigger on a rg421qm blemished for 244.00.
