I have a choice between used ibanez RG350DXZ and a new gfr20gsp. The rg is in pretty good condition, almost like new, he's selling me the guitar for 19,000 inr (280$, new costs around 500$ here). I just came to know about the gfr, and I like the fact that it has a fixed bridge considering this will be my first guitar. The gfr costs around 17000 rupees (270$).
I will visit a music shop soon, but I doubt they will have the gfr available, I'll have to order the gfr. I don't know which one to go with.
Also, I intend to buy blackstar id core 20. But I'll finalize only after listening to a bunch of different amps. Any particular models that I should look out for are appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
just watch, floyd rose trems on cheap guitars are often more bother than they're worth.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Et tu, br00tz?
What Dave said. The edge III, probably not going to be the most stable trem. I would avoid guitars with trems in that price range honestly.
I concur with Dave and JW.

I agree with the advice on tremolos. Cheap floating trems are just way more time than they are worth. A vintage style trem like strats have is fine because you can adjust it flush to the body and eliminate most of the tuning issues found with cheap trems.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
