Are there any cheaper Ibanez models good for classic rock.....If not what brands should I be looking at...

Know that I can't spend any more than $250

hmmm if you could save up a bit more you could look at the ibanez artist series, my ar300 is great!

You might get lucky and find some clearance Ibanez ARC's for that much. Also check out some Agiles. I think Epiphone Dots are now in that price range.
Ibanez ARC300 very good except the pups are a little smooth but still a great choice although its a little out of your price range.
The GRG170DX seems to get good reviews. It's $249.99. The RG321 is $279.99 and also gets good reviews. Many around here have said that it's a nice guitar for the price.
