I'm looking to buy the Ibanez RGA42TFMZ seeing as it's cheap and has basically everything I need right now for metal playing. I was just wondering what an active eq switch is and how it works, because this guitar has one instead of a tone knob. The pickups on this guitar are brand new model Ibanez pickups which are specifically designed to work with the eq switch, but I still don't know much about what it does. Does it give good clean and distorted tones? Things like that.

Also, could anyone give me any other recommendations similar to this guitar for around $500-600?
