Guys, I am planning on buying a cheap guitar (under $250 dollars preferably), Then I would replace the pickups with EMG's or Duncans. :P

Basically it should have.......
- 24 frets
- Not Floyd Rose or Floating Tremolo
- Thin Neck
- I dont know much about scale length, but it should have the scale length of a Jackson RR 3? Sorry. :S
- Preferably under $250-300


^^ Jackson or Ibanez guitars are preferred.


Thanks,

I dont know if this helps but I prefer buying a used guitar (make sure its not too used haha) because what you can get for 250-300 used is usually better than what you can get for 250-300 new. Thats just my preference for buying guitars but if you want a new one go for it. As for what guitar i'm not sure, sorry, I dont know much about Jacksons, Ibanez, or Hammers etc.

Why putting expensive EMGs in a cheap wood?


Anyway...try the guitars. It doesn't matter what guitars the people here are preferring...it'll be YOUR guitar. Try it, buy it.

an ibanez rg 321 should be what you are looking for


Just checked out a couple of it's reviews and videos. Looks and sounds pretty cool. I'll definately consider this.
Thanks man.


Anymore suggestions?

Ibanez RG321MH is indeed a very nice guitar for it's price. But if you are willing to flare away from the superstrat style of ibanez and jackson then why not take a look at Agile AL-2000 or Valkyrie with slim neck profile option. They're also outright great.

Oh not the RG321MH, I like the RG321.
The Agile Al-2000 and the Valkyrie doesn't seem to be my thing, I don't really like the body or headstock shape. But thanks for the suggestion though. Much Appreciated.

If there is no difference why is it a different model?
I think the difference is the wood its made from. RG321 from Basswood and RG321MH from Mahogany. If I remember correctly.
I guess I'd have to go for a RG321MH because I cannot find a RG321 on Ebay or Amazon.

Grab a cheap Jackson man!!
Or an ESP/LTD!!!
LTD guitars always seem to have the most bang for the buck imo
But at heart I'm a Jackson kinda guy.

Ibanez RG321MH

- Wizard III neck.
- Gibralter Standard bridge
- Mahogany body

or

Ibanez RGR321EX
- Same as above, but with different pickups [same pickups series though], a basswood body and a reversed headstock.
