Then don't get a trem. Unless you're into playing Slayer solos skip it, they are far more trouble then they are worth esp. the cheaper ones.

I would go for the Ibanez. Or a used MIJ Jackson.

And trems are fine as long as you know how to use them and set them up. The problems come when you try to change string gauges and tunings.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I would go for the Ibanez, the necks on the RG's are very fast and fairly thin. Though the best way to choose between two different guitars is to go to your local music shop and play both of them. But if you're planning to buy online, go Ibanez.
Gear:
Ibanez RG550
Gibson Les Paul Studio
LTD MH-350NT
Martin OMC1e
Mesa Boogie Express 5:50
Boss CS-3
MXR Carbon Copy Delay

Just better build quality. Those JS series Jackson's are hit or miss. The MIK Ibanez's aren't that good either, but better than those India Jacksons.

Like I said above, if you can find a used Japanese Jackson or Ibanez, or even an older (mid '90s) MIK Ibanez, you should be okay.

Go with an ol rg550/560/570/770.
Hell even a 470 if you swap out the bridge posts.

I got my 470 for 150$ and its on par with my rg1570 prestige, besides the trem and tuners.
Imo the 370/350's are ****ing garbage.
And yes, I do own one.

not sure if those are easy to find in my country and i'm kinda afraid of buying used guitars because of warped necks and stuff like that... i'll give it a try anyway

what's so bad about the 350/370? just curious.. i've heard the edge zero ii is a pretty good bridge

aside from the bridge, wood and middle pickup what else is different between the rg321mh and the 350mz?
