out of those two i'd say RG2EX1 IMO

but if you have an extra 50 dollars or so get an RG3EXFM1 it has a really nice finish

EDIT- the mahogany will sound more bassy and nice but basswood is also alright as well

RG3-basswood w/ flame maple top
RG2-basswood
RG321-MAHOGANY

^ save up for an rg1570, then, the trems on the low-end RGs aren't very good.

gtfo

are you seriously suggesting that a high-end ibanez (e.g. j-custom) is a worse guitar than a low-end schecter or epiphone?

Holy shit, you mean a high end guitar will outperform a low end one?

I always thought it was the other way around, thank you for enlightening me.

comparing a high end epi (assuming you mean the japanese-made ones, which are meant to be pretty good) to a low end ibanez is retarded too, and intellectually dishonest. you compare like with like.

i love what you did with ibana-crap, by the way, that was clever- the booker prize shortlist next year better watch out!

Just because you only know two doesn't mean that there aren't plenty more.

Of course, if you want a trem that means that the 321 is out of running - it's a hardtail.

TS, I'd advise listening to Dave and saving until you can get an Ibby with a good trem.

Edit:

Well, what do you speak then?
It sure as hell isn't English.

Just look at the pictures then, that ought to be more on you level.

In all honesty, in that price range you're better off getting a hardtail or non-double-locking trem. Unless, of course, you plan on swapping the trem out for something better.

Well, there are double-locking tremolos, like most Ibanezes have. They have clams that lock the string into place at the nut and at the bridge. For the most part they have better tuning stability and better vibrato range than anything else. However, lower end ones are known to wear out quickly.

Non-locking trems are like the ones on Fenders. They don't lock at either end, so the tuning stability isn't too great; but they aren't much of a fuss to restring or retune. This convience comes at the price of not having as much vibrato range.

Someone else will probably be able to explain it better.
#21
so can i not do some of the crazy trem tricks on non-locking? i know it wont be great on either

Well, it depends on how crazy you want to get. You'll probably get away with a few of the more tame harmonic tricks on a non-locking, but you won't be able to do the insane stuff that Vai and Satch do.

On the other hand, Jimi Hendrix only ever had a non-locking.

Save up more.

When you'll get like $750 you'll have a good tremolo.

free speech is fair enough- it also means i have the right to say you're talking crap.

of course all low-ends suck, but some low-ends suck more than others. i mean, something like a yamaha pacifica 112 is a remarkably decent guitar for a beginner model. my complaint was that you were blanket comparing all ibanez models to all epiphone models, which is daft.

Quote by nowa90

neither do i. a lot of that site is in english, plus the j-customs are japanese-market only, so it's the only ibanez website you can find them on.

Quote by plunkett

you could get something like a wilkinson (combined with locking tuners), that'd let you get more crazy than a strat-style trem, the problem is you aren't going to get those on a cheapish guitar either...

the big problem is that, as sir anonymous correctly said, cheapo locking tremolos generally are crap and will wear out quickly, not hold tuning well, and have poor sustain etc.

something like an ibanez s320/470/520 would be worth considering, if you can do without 24 frets (it has 22). The zr trem isn't exactly the same as a floyd (it uses ball bearings rather than knife edges), but it's a pretty good trem, is double-locking, and should let you get pretty crazy. that'd be my choice if you definitely need a trem. Make sure you try it first, though, i've heard the quality control can be a little patchy on them.
