I've been renting one of those Dean playmate guitar's from the person that I take lessons from (I've taken 3 so far) but I wanted a guitar of my own. My price range is 200-300 dollars. I'm planning on playing hard rock and metal stuff. I was thinking about a low end Ibanez RG, any suggestions?

My first guitar was a Pacifica from yamaha. It's really nice for a beginer guitar and I play Metal nu-metal and hard rock with it and it sounds good. It is in your price range i think ( I got one for 350$ (canadian device)).

Wow, thanks for the quick responses! I'll try out the Ibanez RG321MH at guitar center. Also, are there any effects pedals that I should look into?
