Decided I'm gonna splash out on a new guitar but cant decide which Ibanez I should go for. I play many different styles of music from blues to progressive to metal etc etc so I need something that is versatile but I Shred aswell so it needs to play fast. I narrowed it down to seven lol :

JS1000 http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/ibanez-js-1000/1160
RG3270 http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/ibanez-rg-3270-j/11246
RG2007 http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/74200
JEM77V http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/71843
RG8320 J Custom http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/73082
S-2170 SE http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/73088
UV777P http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/ibanez-uv-777p/1157

I was also thinking about going for a Les Paul Standard but i'm really not sure.

Just wanna hear which one you guys think is the bet or be better suited for my needs n stuff like that. Plus which make of amp goes well with and Ibanez. I was thinking about getting a Marshall MG100HDFX with two cabs. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

JEM77V, one of the best guitars I've ever played, I'm saving for it now, actually.
Or the 7 string version if you want it.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.



If you resist change, you will be here forever.

do NOT get the marshall
thats all i can say
Send me off to bed forevermore.

Jesus Christ no! Don't get the MG... especially the half stack! If you want to know more about MG's... use the search bar.


Also, I would probably get the J Custom out of all of them. I would scratch the S-2170 SE since it's Korean made and nowhere near as decent as the other ones. Have you even tried any of them? What is your budget?

get eh 7 string Vai one, cuz i mean hey, why not right? lol
but for teh love of god don't get that amp
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)
Floor Pod (for sale)
#7
i would go with the JEM77V but you'll only truely be happy with your own choice plus with that kind of money I would get a herman li model (when they come out) or buy good $450 one with floyd rose and save your money and get a marshall or something
#9
My budget for the guitar is maybe £1400. I could easily stretch it to £1500 if i wanted too. scratch the S-2170 then. Any ideads what amp or stack i should get then? i'm open too any make. I haven't tried any of them. i had a go of my friends ibanez but i'm gonna go to a nearby guitar shop that has them. but i would like to narrow it down too two or three so i dont have to decide between six lol

Out of the ones you listed the RG8320 blows the rest away, I mean, it's J. Custom.

A Les Paul standard is very different from the Ibanez guitars, also a regular Gibson in my opinion doesn't come close to J Custom.

Seriously, if you can go for J Custom, do it. They're incredibly well built and pretty hard to find outside Japan.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

I would personally take the 3270 over that particular 8320. And in my personal opinion J-Customs by no means blow the 3xxx RGs away. They've got more luxury trim, but the quality, components, and construction are similar.

And what everyone said about the lovely MG stack.
Fender Japan Stratocaster Ibanez Pro540 Power Ibanez Pro540 Saber Ibanez 430S Ibanez S540 Charvel LSXIII w/GraphTech Ghost MIDI Parker Fly Artist Ibanez S1220 Mesa F30 Roland GR20 Roland Microcube + IBANEZ TREMS STILL SUCK!

Thanks everybody. been a big help. i'm sort of leaning towards the j custom or the jem. but i'll see what i feel like buying when i try a few of them and am about to part with my cash lol. but yeah i now know to stay away from the mg so thanks could have been a big mistake lol.
