Hi
This summer i'll get a new guitar. I want to spend maximum 700CDN$ on it. Since the only guitar i own is a stratocaster copy i got for 20 bucks in a garage sale, i need a good, do-everything guitar...It's been two years and a half that i play guitar now and i need a better thing than my crap.
What should i get.
The one i have in mind right now is the Ibanez RG350 DX. Is it a good choice?
Thanks

The Ibanez is a good choice. You should also look in to Yamaha guitars, such as the Pacifica 812V, it has Seymour Duncan pickups and Sperzel locking tuners and the finish is great (either a transparent blue or sunburst).

I also looked at some Epiphone like the SG-400 something...is Epiphone good anyways?

Epiphone isn't bad. The SG is more aimed towards metal though. What kind of music do you play?

yeah, the higher end epi's are pretty good. My friends got one and really likes it. There on par with mexican strats in quality.

Humm i play some punk-ish things like Sum 41 and Fall Out Boy but also some metal like Static-X, Korn (dont want a 7-str...lol) and SOAD. I also play some smooth things like Nickelback and 3 doors down...a lot of different things.

Oh and i run that through a peavey studio pro 112 and ill get a metal master pedal soon

Most of those artists play with humbuckers meaning that you could go for the SG, if you think you might want more of a variety of tones I'd go for the Ibanez or Yamaha check it out:http://www.yamaha.ca/content/guitar/products/electricguitars/PAC812V/keyfeatures.jsp
