Starting out on a quest for a electric, I've been a pure acoustic up till now, mainly by true will power...but I think it's finally time to cave and give myself a well deserved switch.
Been peeking around about and came out with these 3, any comments on which is better or if they're all crap etc...just looking for some tips

1. Ibanez RG321
2. Ibanez RG2EX1
3. Epiphone G-400

I would say the Ibanez RG2EX1 but that is just for cosmetic reasons over the RG321. The Ibanez's are quality instruments and would be my choice over the Epiphone but my reasoning is based on what style I play (metal, shred & prog).

I'm hopefully getting the amp from a friend, so I don't exactly know the specs/make etc...

Price on the guitar would hopefully be between about 250-325.
As for what style...I can't name people, but would be a mix I guess, really into metal, some blue, punk rock...really wouldn't know which i'd prefer over the others.

Hmm, really leaning on the RG2EX1...but still considering the ep...
Also will I hate myself later for not saving a bit more and maybe getting something with a trem like an RG5EX1 or something?

Stopped by my local music stores and messed with a few guitars there...besides a G-400 they had I also was liking their RG350DX...was about 430 taxed, new. So I hopped onto musicians friend and looked it up to see if I could get a deal, got this instead Link. 500?$ And then I looked further, it's only 399$ on zZounds, samedaymusic, Instrumentpro, what's up with that?

you should go with the epiphone. its just an awesome guitar and goes more with the music u play.
