What amp do you have and what type of music do you want to play?

That's a pretty decent guitar, but I just want to give you more options .

The trem's not too amazing the same way as a strat trem is not too amazing. If you set it to non-floating, it's a perfectly good machine for light use. SA series are very nice for the price.

It depends on how well you play, its not a bad guitar for its price, but i would recomend you save up a bit more for something bettween 300-700 dollars, so you know you have a guitar you will be playing for a long time, one that you can depend on.

I like the GR better. I have an 2000 Ibanez S520WNF with the Wizard I neck. I love that guiitar, but all the S models i have played since have been kinda disappointing since they done away with the Wizard I in 2003 and then moved the whole production to Korea.
Like it was stated earlier, i would save a bit more and get a better model. You get a much better guitar that will last you a lot longer in all ways.

Aye, but I need a new guitar sharpish, plus I'm only 15, so I don't have a regular income, but then again, the parents may come in handy

get an S470.. im not sure which ones are in stock at the moment with Ibanez's new lineup this year.. i think the S470DQXM should be the one..

Trem works like a dream, Wizard necks rock, The overall tone is beautiful with all that good wood in it, Maple Neck, Rosewood fingerboard, Mahogany body.. you cant go wrong..

but how about go try one eh?

I wouldn't do that on a budget. SA neck is very similar to the S neck. It's half a millimeter thicker and has the same radius (so it's just as flat). Same body shape, just a flat back, and SAT Pro is a good machine, it's well-built and feels better than most vintage trems I've tried. Plus, S470 would run him over four hundred quid, as far as I remember, and the only real benefit it offers is a locking tremolo...

The thing I prefer about the Ibanez GRG270B is the body, and the trem locking, but would that make it a bitch to tune.

Btw, I would like to thank you all for your great input !

The bridge on the 270 is a cheap machine that's not really known for quality. If you're not familiar with double locking bridge operation, then it'll be hard to tune and harder to keep in tune.

If you really like the RG body, look into RG321MH - it has a fixed bridge, overally better quality than the GRG, and it's well under 200 pounds.

"

The Epiphone 58 Korina Explorer electric guitar is based on the '58 Gibson design that ushered in the space age! The Epiphone Korina Explorer features a 24-3/4" scale maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. 2 Epiphone humbuckers give it its rock 'n roll voice with 2 volumes, one tone knob, and 3-way switch for shifting from rhythm to high-altitude leads. Swept-back body is made of korina wood, which is lighter and brighter than mahogany and promotes sustain."
Wtf? It's on the Ibanez link..
Silly website.
