ive currently got a IBANEZ SA160QM-AM (the one not made anymore) with a Tonezone installed in the bridge, and im currently looking to buy a new axe (secondhand)
the ones that have caught my eye so far are:
A Burny Les Paul
Jackson King V
Jackson Kelly
Schecter Hellraiser

I know theres others out there but i have no idea were I would begin, would love to have a Floyd Rose and locking nut, what are the opinions about the Ibanez RG prestige's? this is for my second guitar and would love something with a wizard sort of neck, two humbuckers and preferably a guitar that i dont have to do ANY modding for, styles of music are shred/powermetal/neo classical etc

cheers guys

My RG170 isn't bad, I got it for 350 USD couple years back. I'd check out the Hellraiser. Really nice lookin'.

Uh-oh. People might mistake you for a homosexual if you buy a purple pedal.

Mate, if you're looking at Jackson just get a ****ing Rhoads. The Kelly's are pretty shit if you ask me, and the Rhoads looks better than the King V.

Burny Les Paul? Well, any Les Paul costing <$1000 is most likely not worth it.

Schecter C-1 Hellraiser? Yes ****ing please. Got me a C-7 and that's awesome enough.

Try some other Ibanez's, and maybe some ESP's. You can pick up a decent RG for just under $1000, and if you REALLY hunt around, a 400 series LTD ESP.

if you go just over a grand, about 1200 (really whats an extra 200 when youre already dropping a grand on a guitar) and that will be able to get you a RG1570 or a DK2, both of which are excellent guitars

theres a guy selling a RG secondhand for 1500 AUD, I could pay around that much if I had to, what do you think about the Ibanez Prestige RG2620QM ??
