I'm about to get an RG370DX but before I buy it, is there anything wrong with it? I played it in the shop and it's great. And if there is someting wrong with it,please help me pick a guitar,

I don't have enough cash for a Prestige, (if I counted right, around $400-600 in USD)

I really want a Wizard neck, and a floyd rose, and NO ALDER BODIES!

I play Metallica, GnR, AC/DC, Racer X, Mr. Big, and Some Satriani, Vai and Dream theater

well, if you played the guitar, and you like it, nobody can tell you that it's not the guitar to go for. I like that Ibanez rg320mh (i think thats it). It's mahagony and plays great, but no floyd. Or an Ibanez S470, they have the best floyd and a great neck

sorry to say but the RG370DX as a rather crappy trem. its fine now, but in about 6 months, itll wear out on you. i suggest a S series, a S470. its $500 at musicians friend.

^ yep, definately, the S470 is the one, I have been looking into them myself

i can understand not trusting Ebay, but you can trust musicians friend. but make sure you play the guitar before you buy on line. just cause we like it doesnt mean you will, everyone has their own opinion on each guitar.

I'll tell ya i have an Ibanez RG 350 Ex which is allmost exactly like the DX model which is really close to the 370 and i love/hate my guitar it has so many problems! you cant get a really good guitar from ibanez anymore i wouldent gig with it or anything it tends to randomly go out of intunation and the Knife Edge trem is a pieice of **** dont buy ibanez..lol If your looking for an AMAZING guitar buy a Yamaha Pacifica the one i have is AMAZING!! i love it so much probley the easyest gutiar to play ever i've played customized les pauls and everything Yamaha Pacificas KICK ASS!

I was gonna get the S470 until i realised it had 22 frets so know im gonna get the RGT42dx get it its nice(but not as nice as the S, so choose wat you want:good guitar 22frets or ok guitar 24frets)
#11
24 frets isn't necesserally good. Don't subsitute a brilliant guitar for a peice a **** just because of 2 lousy frets

i, probally along with just about everyone else, disagree. heres a list of of good guitar that i know are good:
AR300
ARX300
MMM1
MTM1
RGA321F
S470
S470DXQM
S520EX
SZ320
SZ520
SZ720
SZ4020
IC400

by my count, thats 13.

^ yep take a pick from the list above might be your best bet. what amp do you have?


the good thing about that list is theyre all good guitar with great tone. the MMM1 and MTM1 are both signature guitars so theyre pricey. but the others are affordable. and theyre all fixed bridges expect for the S470, S470DXQM, and the S520EX, but that all have the ZR tremlo system what is the best Ibanez makes and from what i hear it can hold its own compared to an orginal Floyd Rose.

EDIT:
i forgot to add that both the SZ4020 and the RGA321F are pricey too, but really great guitars.

the zr trem is a good one though the problem is that it doesnt have the same flexibility as an ofr would have. also the edge pro (best fr from ibanez imo) is probably a bit better than an ofr but there probably on par with the features though you cant fix a d-tune to the ibanez but you can fit it too an ofr

yeah, seriously, who uses the 23 and 24 fret so much that they need it?


I'm gonna write a song called "Who has ever used the 23rd fret on their guitar?"

But anyway, I'm getting an SA260FM which is another good guitar, IMO, a very solid reasonably priced guitar...
