I am getting an ibanez soon, but i am unsure of which one i should get. What are your favorites, and what do u recommend? I can pay around $500

I like this one but i heard it at floyd rose? Alot of people dont like the floyd rose and i was wondering why. Should i get this or another one? If another which one?

Thank you.

      I love my FR. I don't think I can ever get another guitar without one. It took a little getting used to at first but now I have to get used to NOT having my whammy bar...
      If you don't want the FR, either go for an S series or SZ series.

      Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

      Go for the RG 560, it's got S/S/H instead of H/S/H, so it's got a really versatile tone. And you can't beat the 80's Wizard neck.

      ^I generally say H-S-S...makes more sense to me.

      But still. Anything above the RG5xx will be definately worth getting?that doesn't mean that the RG350 isn't worth getting, of course. Just with the RG350, you're going to want to eventually switch out the pickups and the Edge III. With a RG5xx, you're only going to want new pickups.

      Anyways?in the end, just play a couple guitars, and buy the one that fits you best, regardless of what we say.

      Why do you not have a whammy bar?

          I have an Ibanez Iceman IC400 that I love. I bought it used for $300.

          I'm a tone freak, and I can't touch an Iceman. The tone is just... painful to me.

          it's not that easy finding a Rg 5**. ibanez rg370's are decent guitars, not great but not bad either. take a look into jackson dinky's and esp mh-200's or m-200's

          It has to be ibanez though, it's kind of a sponser thing


          Also i dont like like the iceman shape

          What do u guys think of the pickups in the RG350DX
              #10
              Go For RG5xx. Trust me you won't regret it. Or Go with something from the Sz series. You won't have all the damn tuning issues.
              #11
              the pickups aren't all that bad in the rg350/370. i just adjusted my pole pieces to give the tone a bit more bite, like by boosting the mids on the pickup. the trem was good for about 6 months and has recent;y taken a turn for the worst, but if you plan to replace it after a while go for it.

              if you want a fixed bridge i say SZ320 made before 2006 or any SZ520 or the IC400. if you want a floyd i suggest S470DXQM, one of the newer ones with the ZR trem. all great guitars but a pup change would make them even better.

              i cant wait until u go on here again and post a thread saying y my rg3xx is not in tune. If so you will be pwned lol.

              Try your best to get a rg5xxx. Anything below except the rg321 are BAD. Pickup wise plus the bridge.

              yeah if you read it i said it has taken a turn for the worst. the trem is fine for about 6 months but if you will replace it (like me) than its a good guitar.

              I've got some extra pickups i can put in it (Invader, 59', Air Zone) btw.

              @joel_grieve,
              What exactly went wrong with the trem? How did u fix it?

                  how i temporarly fixed it? i whacked five springs in the back and tightened them as far as they go, thus blocking the trem from use.

                  but then you increase the tention more then it was set up for and it also makes the action a little higher. i know, i did it to my old SA160QM.
