...but then I found another.

I was content with the decision that I'd get an Ibanez RGA32 MOL guitar (24 frets, oiled mahogany body, bolt on neck, string-through), but then I found another guitar: the Hagstrom Ultralux X5 which has 24 frets, a set neck, a normal strat-style bridge and a basswood body.

I mainly play Paul Gilbert-esque type things.

What do you think the wise choice is?

Try them both if you can, but whichever you go for, make sure you are 100% certain. You don't want to buy one and regret it.

Ahh, I can't try them both. I've played an Ibanez RGA series and I loved it, so I know I'll love the Ibanez, but the Hagstrom would be insanely difficult to find anywhere.

Oh well. Maybe I'll just go for the Ibanez and put the other guitar out of my mind... :P

Better to stick w/ a known quantity, IMO.

Hagstroms are quite known quantities, really. They're a respectable brand with usually good quality...

I think he meant that I should stick with the Ibanez because I know I like it.

When choosing a guitar to buy, comfort is the most important thing to consider, imo. If you aren't completely comfortable with the guitar, it won't be enjoyable to play.

Probably, yeah. Sorry, I misunderstood what he said.
