Alright so I narrowed it down to about 4. They're all Ibanezes. Here they are.

Ibanez RG3EXQM1 with Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz pups replacing the stock EMGS.
(About $470)

Ibanez RG5EX1(About $400)

Ibanez RG4EXQM1(About $450)

Ibanez S320 Series(About $500)

I will probably getting a Vox Valvetronix AD30VT 30W Tube with one of these guiters (for christmas.) I play mainly Rock, Classic Rock, some Metal, and Jazz.

The vox amp is not a tube its solid state. I have the 50 watt version.

I'd save up more money and buy a better guitar if it were me.
but out of those i'd say the s320 then buy some different pickups.

The Valvetronix? It says "Real tube-power sound from Vox Valve Reactor circuit"
"Real 12AX7 triode tube and low-wattage tube power circuit."
But it's a hybrid amp, so it still has tubes right?
#4
Oh, and please don't vote if you don't know any information about at least one of the guitars.
#5
Looks like the S is getting the most votes. Is the S truly better then the RG3EXQM1 (with Duncans)? Can someone answer why please.
#6
I voted for RG5EX1 because I have it and love it, but I've tried the S320, and it's pretty great too, especially the tremolo. I don't like the way it looks very much but that's not important, but I'm not crazy about the clean tones.

so what if u like the RG3 with the stock pickups? would u still switch pickups? i mean, it's a complete waste of money if u change pickups if it actually sounds okay to ur ears...

Well, when I peer into the back of mine, I see an EHX tube smiling back at me. Maybe it's just for show

If you don't need the trem. Go for the RG3whateverQM + duncans

I wouldn't change the pickups just yet if I were you though. Put the money towards a better amp. Or a bigger version of that amp.

I can't believe S is getting the most vote. There's no point getting a paper thin guitar + a trem that you are never going to use for $500.


But it is a completely different story if you want a trem. Then definately the S.

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.

I probably won't use the trem for the S320 that much, so if your voting for it because of that, STOP NOW
Anyway if I do like the stock pickups, I guess I'll just keep them, maybe get a better amp. Any suggestions on an amp around $450?

Blue junior, Palomino v16 should be within your budget.

Alternatively. If you want to use the amp for solely practise purpose. Then I'd get a Junior Valve + a OD pedal (I am thinking of a Ibanez Tube screamer) + a good EQ pedal.


If you don't mind getting an used amp. Then Peavey classic 30 is very nice.


Peavey valveking can also be quite good for the price.
