didnt you just start a thread about this, add a poll onto that thread not make a new one.

I was reading up on all 3 models on zzounds.com. You must take into consideration the music that you are planning to play.

Personally, if I were looking for a guitar, I would want something with a set-neck (neckthru), such as the ART300 of the SAS32EX. This helps with the over-all tone and sustain of the guitar. The down side is that if you crack the neck, it might be kinda pricey to repair, and also it might be difficult to find someone to repair it. On the contrary, the JTK4 Jet King has a 3-piece neck. It may not hold notes as long, but there are 3 pieces in the neck so if something somehow happened to it, you would be able to search for just a single piece other than a whole new neck. Also, keep in mind that if you choose to get a guitar with a whammy/vibrato and crank out on either, the tuning may not hold up as well compared to a guitar with a stop tailpiece.

Again, it all comes down to what you are playing. See if you can go to your local shop or a GuitarCenter and play each of these guitars. Compare what you like and what you don't like. It's all up to what you want in a guitar. The guitar is another piece of you. It has to feel good.

I hope this helped.

I like the Jet Kings, they seem to most all-around, and look the most pro (the others LOOK like cheapies to me).

In general I'm not too excited about any of the lower-end Ibanez's (non-Prestige, made in Korea or Indonesia, etc.) - mostly Alder instead of better woods, cheaper metals, so if you plan on keeping it a long time the bridge and other metal areas will rust and dull quicker.

That said, I work with some musicians in my company, and there's an insane guitar player who, his whole life, has refused to buy anything but $99 guitars, makes them sound like $3000 guitars, and then just replaces them every 3 or 4 years.

For crunchy sounds, which one do you think is better?

I'd chose the ART300. The other two guitars have tremolos that will kill your tuning and sustain.

Not crazy about the finish on the ART300 though.

No but i will travel and try it myself, i will travel specially to get a good guitar (since i can't buy by the net ). Guitar locals near to my home buy bad guitars IMO, they buy strat copy of a mark called MEG, do anyone know them?i tried them and they are pretty crappy and their amp also.

Ibanez SAS32EX, gas!

The blue looks awesome.
I'm not a Bible-thumper anymore. Realized I had a brain in '09.

I like guitars, running, and math.
