i have an RG321 which is awesome, its only like 179 or was it 279 but anyways it has the spec of a much more expensive guitar, then with the extra moolah you coul swap out the pick ups or put it towards an awesome amp.

i play mainly death and prog metal with it, and solo stuff like petrucci and the odd bit of jazz and blues so this thing can handle everythin

Edit: its a hardtail btw i dont know if you really want a trem but if you really need it youre going to have to spend alot of money on an ibanez to get a decent one, maybe the ZR is the only decent one outside of OFR

look into an Ibanez S series
very much in the price range, quite versative, light, well made and great for metal

If you've got £500 to burn you really want to be spending it on a proper amp.

Guitar wise the Washburn X50 Pro is the best bang for your buck by a country mile.

You'd even have enough left over to get yourself a Cube.

Seriously, if you buy a £500 guitar when you only have that piece of crap Behringer you're a complete numpty

I'd recommend the Ibanez SAS36FM [Dark Red Sunburst is my fav colour]

It looks sweet, costs under £400 [extra money for pedals ect] and IT'S IBANEZ! It scored 9/10 in the UG reviews.

I agree that the S series is a very good line of guitars, but don't go by the UG reviews. You're talking about the same reviews that give the Marshall MG a 10.

+1 when i got my new guitar, i got a new 100W amp to go with it. Sure, it was second hand from a mate and cost me $200, but hey, it's better than the 10W practice amp i had. Recently, i plugged my Gibson into the practice amp and it sounds terrible. Definetly get a new amp while you're there.
I hate my username, it all happened in a rush
