so far i narrowed it down to an hss stratocaster or ibanez RG4EXQM1
and im getting a Vox Valvetronix amp

okay so now i need you guys to help me on which to get or you guys can recommend me others in the price range $400 and down.
for styles i want to be versatile but i'll be playing a lot of alternative, guns n roses, red hot chili peppers, blues and probably throw in some punk and metal in there.
so what do you guys think?
#2
they are both nice guitars, can't really go wrong. choose the one that feels the best to you.
#3
I would prefer to get the Strat to be honest, just my preference, you've got a decent amp so just pick the guitar which feels best for you.

i'd go with the strat, but thats just my preference. depends on what styles you play
stuff:
guitar.
amp.
acoustic.
#7
mm i'll see what i can get but i heard the lockin trem system on the ibanez is a pain in the ass when restringing

yeah, the rg is a pain to restring, but those guitars are amazing IMO. Either way you go, you're getting a good guitar, so like everyone else is saying, just pick whichever one feels right to you.
