Just discovered this guitar, it's £300 but the specs beat all the other guitars I've seen in the price range. Active EMG's and Grover tuners. Aparrently it also has an Agathis body, which isn't great, but it's used in the lower end LTD's too.

I wanted to get an Ibanez RG but after looking at this I'm having second thoughts. They don't have them in my local store so I won't be able to try it out. Ibanez RG, or this?

I've got an X50Pro and its an awesome guitar - especially if you take into account the price Have you tried DV247? They will generally get stuff in for you to try, even though its a call centre rather tahn a showroom. Or Machinehead in Hitchin stock Washburns. Might be worth checking them out.

^I've heard of DV247, they're probably not very close to me but I'll check them out.

Thanks for the reply.
