Ive been trying to find the perfect guitar for me in my price range - about £250-300 - and i think this is it. so i need your opinion. Ibanez - http://www.thomann.de/gb/ibanez_rga32wh.htm or esp ltd - http://www.thomann.de/gb/esp_ltd_mh_100qm_nt.htm

I play metal, indie, rock, grunge, and i will be playing it through a line 6 spider iv 30 until i get my bugera 6202 212. I dont really want any more reccomendations but if you feel its valid then go ahead. i wanted the rgr321ex but its too expensive.

I'd recommend getting the Ibanez, as I find that lower end Ibanez guitars are generally better than lower end LTD's. However I haven't played the specific LTD you listed, but I have played the Ibanez and thought it was a bargain!

For £250 - £300 I'd go used. You can get a Jackson DK2M or if you look hard enough, an Ibanez Prestige of some sort. I got my S1220 for £350 on eBay.

Whut? Gumtree is awesome. I've seen atleast 5 DK2Ms for less than £300 in the last month.

Nah, usually only costs about £25 insured. Most people just won't post because they can't be bothered. But going used can save you a lot of money, especially if you decide you want something different, you'll lose a lot less.

Can you play either model, or similar models? The necks are pretty different.

As far as straight up quality is concerned, I'd go with the Ibanez. I've had better experiences with their low end than LTD.

Lastly, I don't think that amp is a good choice at all for what you play.

Really depends on your budget. Judging from the amp given, a Bugera 333XL would be better.
