What is the best Ibanez 6-string guitar with no tremolo, fixed bridge, set-neck for around $500?

I play rage, audioslave, soundgarden, periphery, djent, etc...

Thanks

Far as I can remember there are a few RGs without a trem, I could be wrong, I'm not an Ibanez fan.

Given the fact that you'd be going through an assinine amount of tunings with that band listing, a fixed bridge is a solid choice, so good on you for that. But why are you set on Ibanez?

I've heard the wizard neck on the Ibanez is great. I want something that is thin and fast. I'd like a set neck and jumbo frets.

Ibanez, $600, you'll most likely get an AANJ instead of a set neck.

Though I personaly prefer the AANJ to any other neck joint type

Go less on what you've heard and more on what you like as a feel. Go and try some, don't feel set on something that you've only heard about. Thats setting yourself up for disappointment.
