I'm getting a 2nd guitar for this christmas and this is what I'm interested

Ibanez RG321MH
It seems fine but the only problem with it is that in my country it only comes in black(I dont really fancy the grains popping out) and blue.I want the mahogany oil finish.

Ibanez RGR321EX
Looks great but basswood?I dunno,but is it okay for metal?

Ibanez SA160QM
The HSS pups are making me think twice.I've the impression that HSS are not good enough for metal .This guitar has EMG Designed bridge pup.Is that a plus?Is it fine for metal?

Epiphone Les Paul Classic
How is it?I heard many people complaining bout under Elite Series epiphones.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard(2002 model)
I can get it,but it's the alder+mahogany model.I've tested it,but it didn't have that kinda crunch.I guess that just because I tried it thru a lousy amp.I'll try it again later

Jackson RR3
I'd love this but I don't have enough money for one of these.To continue saving,I'll have to wait till next year.Worth it?

Ibanez Dunno-what-RG 7 string.MIJ with FR.
Saw this in the local music store,and I think it's MIJ or maybe what the salesgirl meant was it's bought from japan 2nd hand.

Ibanez RG with wilkinson bridge loaded with V7 V8
I dunno the model yet,I'll ask tonight.What's so special bout the wilkinson?

Ibanez RGT42
The neck's broken but it's fixed already.Comes with an Edge III.I know that bridge sucks but the price's cheap.

So which one should I get?I know I should save up for the RR3 but I have NO guitar now.And yes,I'm gonna get a new amp to replace my Laney HCM10 after I get my guitar.I'm pretty interested in the SA160 but it's just the HSS issue and the Les Paul Classic but I think it has a rather fat neck.

Most definately an RG.
i like the RG350 for metal.
About $800-850 AUD.

EDIT: If you had the money for the RR3, the you should go that, but if you have no guitar now, then probably get one of the others, then get the RR3 at a later date.

good thing about the RGs he listed is that they dont have the crappy trem that the rg350 does have.

Haha thanks,but the RGT42 comes with the Edge III. I thought of blocking it?

i recon the RGR321ex, sexy guitar
cant beat the reverse headstock
emg designed pickups which are pretty powerful for stock pickups
the basswood body is fine
loads of people use basswood satriani, gibert etc
but if u reli wanted the mahogany body get the RG321MH
the pickups arent as good and ur missing out on the reverse headstock :P

but my choice wud by the rgr321ex
#7
I dunno,but isn't basswood suited to those kinda virtuoso's tone?I realize a lotta shredders like Steve Vai,Satriani,and Paul Gilbert use guitars with basswood.

yeah i supose. but u can still get some really metally tones out of it

the wood isnt goin to affect the sound too much unless u hav a really nice amp
but mayb u do :P
and even then its only gonna b a lil bit and even then if ur using it for metally stuff
then ur gona hav loads of drive/gain on ur amp any way so u wont reli hear those
slight doen differences

Should I get a 7 string?I don't know how to play a 7 string and the only band that I listen that uses a 7 string is Dream Theater.

My brother has an Ibanez RG321MH. It's nice. I don't like the neck on it, but it's a nice guitar.

Alright,I'll admit it,I hate the feel of les pauls.That leaves me with

RGR321EX
I like the way the RGR looks,but it only comes with black and blue and I read that the RG321MH is much better.

RG321MH
Not much of a looker,but I heard that it's highly recommended for heavier genres.

SA160QM
Right now,I'm thinking about getting this instead of the RGs.Wise choice?
