So, what would you say it is?....Would it make more sense to get a lower end ibanez (gio) and then maybe a year later when I've improved, get the RG321 or perhaps an even higher model....Or would it be more appropriate to buy the RG321 as a first guitar?

EDIT: btw, i am getting a roland cube 30x amp since i do not want to have to replace my amp for several years. Thats a pretty chunky price in itself ($230)

Depends on if you know you will want to play for a long time. Hell if you knew that you wanted to play for the rest of your life, get yourself an expensive one. Just get what you know you will enjoy.

i wouldnt classify it as a begginer or second year but if you have the money i would reccomend getting it cause its gonna make learning a little bit easier than the gio

i have a limited RGR320 and im still using it 4 years on. All i've done over the 4 years is change the pickups, it was my first guitar and its still my favourite. I bought a Scheter c1 fr hellraiser and i prefer the ibanez.

get that guitar if you got the cash

i would suggest get a good guitar first, to keep you interested and confident that you have a quality instrument. Worked for me.

Well, I am on a bit of a budget, so I thought it might be wise to get a grx20 (which will eventually be my backup guitar) and an awesome amp (the cube 30, which i won't be replacing anytime in the next few years at least) rather than getting the RG321 and a cheaper amp. I guess I'm just trying to find the most economical solution. I think a grx20 and a cube 30x would give me very satisfying metal tones, especially since I don't have a discerning ear yet. Any thought?

Nooooooooooo. Guitars are shiny and purty, but your tone comes from your amp, or most of it. Get the cube, upgrade the guitar later.

See, thats what I was thinking...plus I figure when it comes time for my second guitar, I will be well trained with not just playing but maintaining my low end ibanez, and I'll be prepared to handle something in the $300 - $450 range.

You have another option, you'll be happy as hell if you save up another $100 preferably for the RG321MH.

The RG321MH can be ur 1st, intermediate and even your last guitar.
