IMO the best Ibanez are the JS series or an HH 540R (which are hard to find. The radius series was discontinued and the HH versions were rare to begin with).

I'm not a big fan of the necks though but only because of the gloss finish. Right now I'm using an original '89 Wizard I neck on a JS body and I really love it but it's a little flat. I've gotten used to it and I adore the finish on it .. I probably won't be replacing it .. but one day I might try to find a radius or a JS neck and strip the finish off and see if I like it better.

Anyway I'm getting a bit carried away. A used radius will run you about $500 USD which is out of your price range and a new JS100 is about the same maybe a little higher.

The only Ibanez you might be able to afford in your price range is a lower end RG but I'm not a big fan of RGs at all. Even the higher ends. The bodies are ugly IMO and they're very uncomfortable too. But again that's just my opinion. They might be for you.

Edit - I almost forgot. Regardless of what Ibanez you got you might find yourself wanting to replace the pickups for your style of music. Stock Ibanez pickups aren't bad .. especially compared to other brands .. but you can still do better. Kurt Cobain used a dimarzio super distortion in his teles. You'd probably want to find a really hot pickup combo like that. Either the super distortions or EMGs or an X2N etc. 2 pickups would set you back another ~ $100 USD or so if you bought them from a US ebayer.

And emg;s last 3000 hours, so thats 3 months of straight playing. It will last 3 months if you leave the lead in, if you take it out after u play, it will last forever.
