I have a Ibanez GRG 170DX, and i have a Richwood Vendetta guitar, i believe the Richwood is a copy guitar, it was because of this i found out to my suprise that the Richwood, actually sounded and played better than the Ibanez guitar, i thought Richwood was an unknown copy brand of guitars, is there something i don't know about? :P

Yeah, the GRG goes out of tune if you look at the wrong way

But shouldn't the Richwood still be inferior in quality?

Skills before gear bro, i figured, that a cheap guitar is good for beginners wanting to learn, im poor, and i've come a long way since i first started 2 years ago, and im so ****ing sick of the GRG now, it never stays in tune, and when playing a tune like CFH by Pantera, it buzzez like crazy, but the Richwood guitar doesn't buzz at all during that song, and it sounds much clearer and better, that's what promped me to ask this question...

Why? It's only a name - if you took an Ibanez that costs $120 and a Richwood or whatever name that costs $200 which do you think would be better?
Actually called Mark!

If anything, random copies you've never heard of can tend to be superior quality to lower-end name brand guitars of the same price as said copy, simply because the name brand is assured sales due to the name, whereas the random copy actually has to be a decent guitar to sell.
