I'll be getting a new guitar (under 500$) soon and i was wondering if i should purchase an Ibanez RG370DX or a Schecter Omen 6. I mostly listen to metal and punk bands.

Other suggestions would be awesome.

under five hundred isnt going to get you anything great unless you get lucky at guitar center or something. I would look for a RG1570 or Scheter C-1 classic or even a Fat strat.
