so I'm writing this forum for my friend and myself a little bit as well. today he and i were at a guitar center and he fell in love with this guitar http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-RG471AH-Electric-Guitar-106566821-i1697623.gc. personally i find the finish to be a bit boring but he loves it so all the power to him.

the question is, does anyone have any feedback about this guitar? pros? cons?

this is his ideal sound, he's running through an older marshall mg100dfx and he is perfectly content with the tone, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLjSzwFa4QI&ob=av2e

second question is does anyone else have other recommendations around the same price range? max price is about $5-600 usd. and he would prefer new.

NO FLOYD. actives/passives doesn't matter, preferably 24 frets, fast neck.

great looking guitar but he doesn't want to deal with a floyd and would prefer a hard tail

They make them in a NT or non trem version. I don't like FR trems either and prefer hard tail
