A used 550 or 570 is your best bet. Although, in that price range I would personally recommend the S series, I know it's not what you asked for, but you really ought to look into those guitars. New RG's in that range have bad Edge III trems, the S has the ZR.
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!

but yeah S series IMO are a lot better to play for a good price, test an s series out, you might like it

I have the RG 350 and it's bang in your budget. It's an excellent guitar for the price. The neck is very nice with the action as low as it can go. The hardware (locking nuts, tremelo, tuners) are of excellent quality and it's got a nice sound to it.

£295.


No offense, but just cause' the guitar you own has a "excellent" hardware doesn't mean that his will. The Edge III is a hit an miss, and even "if" it's a hit, it won't last. Threadstarter, if you aren't looking for a tremolo the RG321 is a good choice, it's in your price range and you'll have money left over for an amp maybe...

the rg320fm has a crap trem as well. the only ibanez trem models you should be looking for are the s series guitars

The tremelo isnt really of great importance

Dont go there plz, its 1st act guitar and the trem isnt the greatest and the stability is questionable.

rgt42fm (hard tail model only please) i think has sharktooth inlays as well

RG350DX/EX/MDX or RG370DX, The Edge III bridge is questionable so if it goes out of stability its switchable to an OFR. Cheapest and most reliable LFRs is the Gotoh which will run you for about $130. If you really want highest ends, there is a prestige model that seriously blows cash which has a sharktooth inlays.

EDIT: To azn_guitarist, those 2-tone inlays and the neck thru are too expensive i think.

TS, i'd suggest that you get either the RG321MH or one of the SZ series and save couple of hundreds to buy you a nice amp. Those Marshall aint gonna cut it.

an s470, and sz, or a used rg570/550/1570/1550/520.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

If you'd prefer a more LP-ish guitar (rather chunky neck, heavy mahoganybody, fixed bridge) go for an SZ. Sweet, sweet guitars.

Otherwise S470 or used RG5xx
