Ibanez for sure. The cheapest Ibanez will most likely be better than the most expensive Squire. Seriously. Squires aren't good.

IBANEZ. i have a squier and i've only played it for a year and its already falling apart.
OMG...i'm a girl.

Depends on what styles you play, how much you want to spend, how experienced you are...also, there's more than two guitar manufacturers out there.

i think ibanez is so much better than a squire of the same price, go ibanez
#13
never get a squire if you have the choice to get something else. squires suck and ibanez's are usually pretty good guitars.

don't listen to the fanboys. it depends on what models you are looking at, there are some good squiers like the jagmaster and there are some ****ty ibanez like the starting packs. just try them and get the ones you like. but please, no affinity series, you WILL regret it.
#20
There really aren't many good starter packs out there.

Hell, I've still got my first guitar after 3 years of playing it. Its an Encore. Strat copy, yes. ****ty bridge, yes. Really worn in and sounds alright for the price? Yes.

The above poster's right, don't listen to the fanboys. Ibanez are good, sure. But you don't have to conform to people who say something's great when it might not suit your particular taste.
Now and Zen.

+1. An RG321 or RG2EXx will do you well (the small x could be a 1 or 2).

And I have a Zoom G2.1u. It's a fine multi-effects pedal. Durable, and the sounds seem very organic, compared to Line 6's offerings.

Ibanez = really thin necks. It's something you'll love or find awkward.
ESP has the best necks IMHO. I own one for that very reason. They will be well set up when you get them, and the necks are really smooth and comfortable. The only catch is that low-end models have unpopular woods like agathis...if you wait for a bit, you can purchase models made of basswood.
#26
Depends on what you want.
Squiers have there good guitars and there bad ones, Affinity Tele, '51 and most from the Vintage Mod series are pretty damn awesome.
Ibanez have there good guitars and bad ones, RG321, SZ, S etc. are pretty good.
#28
I would definitely play both first...I know a guy that has a Squire really isn't bad at all.....Nice neck and fretboard......but from my experience, I prefer Ibanez...

Ibanez PERIOD

Is that a new model? Sounds...um...well, messy...

You can't make the decision on brand name alone, simple as. Squier do some good entry level stuff, so do Ibanez...likewise they both make some crud too.

TS - how long you been playing, what styles of music do you play, how much money have you got to spend, what other equipment (if any) do you have etc etc

Ibanez makes great guitars. Im not sure about starter sets though. But between that and a Squire, I'd have to say definitely the Ibanez.
#32
have been playing for some time now... may be a year.... still have an acoustic.... not really into rythm.... love soloing.... getting really bored with an acoustic now.... think its time for an electric.... well how u really know if its time for an electric....?

Try a Hardtail RG from Ibanez. but if you dont Like the necks then your pretty much screwd for Ibanez. i have aalso heard good things about the Squire Jagmaster.
#34
I'v had my Squire for four years and I love it.

I have played an Ibanez quite a bit, but I'm not *real* impressed by it.
#36
Spend at least $400 on an Ibanez with a hard tail. No trems in that price range. You will get a good instrument. Also have heard good about the Squier Teles.
