Specs? Prices? Style of music?

Until you give us some more info, I'm gonna say Ibanez. Because its an Ibanez.

The Ibanez trem is superior, but I'm gonna have to say the Cort. The better pickups and 24 frets just give it an edge over the Ibby.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Corts are great guitar, and their necks are superb. I even think they are better than ibanez necks. The only thing the Ibby has better is the ZR trem, but if you swap out the LFR in the Cort for an orginal, you've eliminated its only disadvantage. Get the Cort
#8
Go for the Ibanez S470, i had one and it was amazing! might get another one
My Gear:
Ibanez RG550M Dimarzio TZ + Paf Pro
Ibanez RG550R Dimarzio TZ in Bridge
Ibanez TS9>Vox AD50VT.

I agree that the Ibanez has a better trem, but 22 frets could be a problem... I'm a 100% Ibanez girl, but with these particular models I'm gonna say the Cort's probably better for your uses.

As an observation - I read that the Ibanez S470 is made in Korea by Cort (they produce a lot of big manufacturers guitars), so they should be of comparable general quality.

Basically your options are a Cort, or a Cort :-)

Cheers, Mark.
