So i have narrowed it down to 2 guitars the Jackson RR24 and the Ibanez RG2550E but i don't know witch to get, i'm leaning more towards the Ibanez because the Jackson has only 1 humbucker..

you can't go wrong with an ibanez prestige
and the good thing is, if you want to sit down and play, you can
oh, whats your amp at the moment ? because there is no point buying a fabulous guitar if your playing it down a megaphone

The better guitar is the RG. But you will need a great amp to get a great tone.
Add me or I will eat your kitty!

the ibanez IMO because the jackson seems more directed to straight up METAL.
the ibanez is far more versatile!
Top lel.

The Ibanez is what I would also go for as it has that range of sounds. I once tryed a jackson V and that shape, with me at least, caused the guitar to lean so far forwards I found it rather annoying and more difficult to play. I also just love the strat shape of the Ibanez.
My Gear :
Fender American Strat in Metallic Red
EHX Big Muff
Boss ME-50
Boss SD-1
Fender 15 Watt Amp (Upgrade soon to a Marshall )
Red Furry guitar strap

I'm gonna tell you to get a new amp anyway, because I think you are a little misinformed about tube amps. There's no way that the cheapest tube amp you can find is two grand, that's just ridiculous. A 15w Crate Palomino costs $400 in the US, and a Laney LC15 is $500, which means it's probably around 200 pounds in the UK.
So where do you live? PinkEdit: Nevermind lol, Iceland.

But out of those guitars, the Ibanez, for all the reasons mentioned above.

I live in Norway, and I'm gonna buy an Orange Rocker 30W for approximately 2000$, so I don't think he's too misinformed about the prices.

Go for the RG2550.
