I have an ART100...one of the few guitars I've bought new. And it was a steal for the $300. Very versatile, and comfortable. Used it for everything from county to metal.

I currently own an Ibanez S670FM and I truly love it, very versatile, thin neck and very light while having pretty good sustain. Problem with Ibanez guitars from factory set up to my take are the pick ups. For the buck you are spending, you should at least get a bit more decent pick ups than the stock ones, but that's just not going to happen.

So here is my advice: spend all you can on the most expensive Ibanez you can get (in this respect, less is not more in the end) and then start saving up for some new pups to put in.

Can get a top RG for that, maybe a used low end RG Prestige (which would definitely be worth the few scratches, dents, etc).

Screw that, do what he said ^.

Totally agree!

I love my ART300, relatively cheap but sounds great

agreed.....if your not into shredding, 22 frets is more than good enough for you, 24 frets guitar is cater more towards shredder.

if you want more versatile guitar go for H-S-H configuration with a 5 way pick up, Rg series and S series comes with it or you can go into H-H configuration and install a splitter on ur pups to get more varieties. get the wizard neck as that's the best neck the Ibanez provide and also edge zero bridge with ZPS system as the ZPS system allow the string to stay in tune for a long time, but not other people is going to agree on me on this.
My Guitar and gear:
09 Ibanez S prestige

Absolute steaming bag of bulldung there's lots of normal metal guitarists, rock guitarists and jazz/blues maybe even funk guitarists that use the 23rd and 24th fret.
