Hey guys, I've been looking for a new guitar for some weeks already, and so far, the Ibanez SZ520QM has caught my eye. I don't know if I should get that, or an epi's archtop one.

If I were to get the archtop, which one should I get? My price limit is 620 USD. Can't get a single dolar higher than that.

Help is appreciated thanks

I'm asking what kind of archtop I should get, not if I should get the Ibanez or the archtop... By archtop guitars I mean to say Sheratons, Dots, etc.

I want it for playing rock guitar (rhytym style, think "Izzy Stradlin")

I think by archtop he means AN ARCHTOP!

The Sheraton II and the Wildkat are the best archtops that Epiphone makes and they are superb. Personally, the only Ibanez I'd ever touch is an artcore, but lots of people like the crap that I think sucks, so do whatever you want with your money. You can get a Wildkat for 500 USD and a Sheraton II for 600 USD. They're usually about 50-100 more than the websites sell them for though.

Actually I saw a Sheraton II for about $550 in stores. That's about 485 USD.

^ Cool, thanks. I've heard good stuff about Casinos, have you ever tried one of them? Tell me about the neck feeling.

Tried one once, not at all shabby, but I like the Sheraton II best. It's the guitar for the blues unless you wanna pay $3000 for a Gibson E.S.
