Well I'm saving up for a new guitar, and have a budget of up to about £300
I was looking at the RG370DX and I tried it our at a guitar shop and liked it, and so was pretty set on getting it.
But I've read the forums around here and people have been saying....distasteful things about the Edge III Bridge on it.
So my question is this:
Should I stick with it or try something else, seeing as I don't really need the trem all that much.
I play mainly modern metal/metalcore/hardcore style stuff.
Also, I would prefer a super strat style.

i reccomend staying away from guitars with a fancy bridge that are in that price range. the chances of getting one that wont give you problems is slim. i suggest trying a schecter. you'll be able to get the look and sounds of the music you're looking to play.

In gr.8 we got into purple nurples so much that the school would suspend anyone they saw doing it. We had really good aim.

Well, I have an Ibanez 370dx myself. It's my first and only guitar and I have to say I'm very happy of it. The neck is indeed superflat, the sound is very good.
Now the trem. Well, it's not easy to work with it if you never had such type of guitar.
I don't know how good other trems are, but I only have one problem with it. If you use it (you don't have to abuse it), the strings are quickly out of tune.

Hope it helps.

If you don't want a trem then get Washburn x50pro.

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

Why not go for the RG321? Same shape and neck as the 370, only cheaper and no trem.

With a pickup change, that guitar would serve you well for a long time. Great choice.

Hows the hardware, sound, and quality compared to the 370DX?
Hardware is the same (with the obvious exception of the single coil and the crappy trem on the 370), as is the quality. A mahogany 321 would have a heavier sound than the basswood 370.

Would that be the 321EX?

Edit: By which I mean would it be worth getting the 321ex over the normal 321?
Also, I can't find the normal 321 on GAK. Is there anywhere else to find it for the UK?

Get the normal RG321, not the EX. The EX is basswood, whereas the RG321 is mahogany. A better choice for metal.

MH indicates that it's mahogany, versus the standard basswood. Non-mahogany 321s are rare as (I reckon) they've been out of production for a while.

EDIT: ^ Darn, you beat me to it!

Get this one.

Awesome, that's pretty cheap
What kind of pickups would you recommend (I don't know much when it comes to pickups)?
#19
If you don't know much about pickups, then you probably shouldnt worry too much about swapping them out for the time being. Play it as it is. Once you find that you need a better tone, then you should start looking at pickups.

I'd definitely recommend a Washburn X50PRO. Absolutely amazing specs for the price you pay on GAK, probably the best deal on a guitar in the UK right now.
