After some research I have narrowed my options to 3 guitars:
1)Jackson DK2
2)Ibanez RG1570
3)Ibanez S5470
The thing I am mostly interested in is the quality of tremolos of these guitars,aswell as the playability (I can't try all of them).

i would say ibanez, but i also say that you should never buy a guitar until youve played it and found wat you liked and didnt like about it.... kuz if you buy it, then end up not liking it, its just a waste of time and possible money too

Ibanez RG1570 I like these. I was going to buy it this one time. It was originally 1000 on sale for 500, now that I think of it I should of bought it ( got an SG instead). They are good to play.

Everyone on this site will generally recommend an ibanez because its an ibanez. I seriously think you should try them first before making a choice but if you cant, go with the jackson.
I decided I want to be more like the people on ug...

I myself dislike ibanez'es because they lack tone and personality. But i have to admit that out of these three guitars, the S5470 is without a doubt the best chioce. Best trem, best neck, good pickups (although i like SD's better).
I think you (umbrellacorp) are a Jackson fanboy (like me) but you have to use your common sence sometimes.

Being an Ibanez fanboy I think I should weigh in my opinion. I have the RG1570 and find it quite awesome, though you'll probably end up switching the pups. The S5470 is awesome but I haven't heard the pickups. Plus, it looks kickass.
#14
If you like shred than the Ibanez if you like heavy metal then the jackson if you like both then the Ibanez.
#15
I know it's weird to ask which guitar is better when the prices are so different,but it's so because i can't really find all the models from either Jackson or Ibanez at my shop (and those are pretty much the only two guitar manufacturers here,beside Fender)
