So previously I was looking at a LP shaped guitar, played a few and couldn't actually settle on one. I've since started looking at Ibanez Guitars but the whole model thing confuses me, I liked the look of the RG guitars though. But basically I'm after the following:

24 Fret (not a deal breaker, can use 22)
2 Humbuckers
No Trem (Needs to be used for drop tunings as well as standard e.g. Drop D)
Would like some versatility as it will be used to play many different styles...


Would consider an HSS model or HSH if it'd be that much better. Please no suggestions for a HSS Strat, I used to have a Mexi one and while they're awesome guitars they're not quite what I'm after atm.

You mustn't have looked very hard if you can't find an ibanez with those specs. Theres quite a few about.

It's not that I didn't look to hard, I'm just unsure about all the different models. I have no problem looking into it but I'm hoping someone could recommend a model as a starting point....

RG's are generally more "shredders" guitars, If you want versatlity, try the S series... only thing is, most of them (if not all) come with a tremolo of some description.

yeah I have no idea where to start myself when it comes to the RG series, theres only about 50 different RG variants per model year >.>

Are you telling me theyre out of dragons?

Cool i'll check some of those out.

Is there anything in particular i need to be wary of when looking at ibanez?

solo 6 schecter hellraiser

HILT!

Where's Waldo?

he said he wants a ibby.

TS:-check out the darkstone series and the RGA, the 2010 S series now all come with 24 frets but are not hartail. the only thing to look out for is stay away from any series that part of the Gio range (GRG,GAX) these are the bottom of the range and made from the lowest quality materials.

RGR321EX is the basic, well-executed strat that suits your specs. Basswood body though.

RGA42 is the archtop version of similar guitar but has active pickups. No coil-splitting either. Body wood: mahogany.

RG1451 is a higher end model with HSH setup and bit different looks. Different neck (more round), better pickups.

I noticed the TS didn't do that either, what an idiot...

Had a look at a Schecter C-1 Plus, not horribly keen on actives at this stage though but will keep the Hellraiser in mind...

I was actually looking at an ART500 the other day. Could probably get it fairly cheap
too. Waiting to hear back on a price...


So the RG1451 seems to be the way to go (and some other models in the mid end of the scale). What would the neck be like compared to say.... a Jackson DK2M? Any idea?

An rg can be just as versitile as an s and an s is just as much of a shredder guitar than an rg
