Music genres? Favourite bands? Location? (amp?)

We can't tell you which guitars you will like, we can only tell you which guitars we like. The best advice is always to go to as many shops as possible, try as many guitars as possible and buy your favourite.

We may be able to give some pointers and provide advice on guitars to be avoided or which wouldn't suit your style, but to do that we'll need more information like what style you play, what other kit you'll be using and your location.

Why not go to a guitar store and try out a few guitars to see what you like and what you don't like?

Don't limit yourself to just Ibanez, but try out things from different brands and different makes and models.

The right guitar will honestly just sing in your hands.

If you don't mind thicker necks, go on eBay or Craigslist and see if you can find a Schecter C-1 Classic/Custom. They have bad resale values so you can find one pretty cheap. For $400, I can't think of anything much better unless you find a big deal on something else.

I'm amazed nobody has mentioned these yet;

Look at the Agiles. Not touched one myself as I'm in Europe, but they get a good rep on here.

Depends on the model of ESP or Jackson. The Torero is way out of your price range and its overpriced anyway.

Nowhere. Thats the fun with agiles, you gotta take a shot in the dark really.
Looks like a pretty decent guitar.

You could always try craigslist roulette. Its shown fantastic results!

Shipping to me (calgary) is 111$ us.
On top of that expect to pay duty, which may be as high as 60.
I paid 50$ duty on a 400$ amp.

I fixed that. 379$ guitar should be 40-60$ duty.

I would look used on kijiji man, after s/h and duty its not really worth it.

Edit: where you live? I could cruise kijiji for ya for some good deals.
