I think they're amazing. I learned to play on one, owned one for a while, and my best friend has one. They're great guitars, especially for the price, and I highly recommend them. What style of music do you play?

edit: looking at your gear, you might want to invest in a new amp right now, instead of another guitar, and I think most people would agree...
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

My Ibanez Artcore AS73 (335 style semihollow) is outstanding. Stupid lightning bolt on the headstock though.

Artcores are some of the best value semis/hollows around.

Well your guitars are good enough though the Artcores are definitely sweet. If you don't have a lot of cash but would like a tube combo there is the used market. There are a number of new $200 5 watt tube combos, I would check out the Crate Palamino and Peavey Valveking Royal 8. Both are surprisingly loud and good distortion (would need a pedal for metal.) You could keep your Crate for more power and have sweet tube distortion available.
