hi guys

im getting a new guitar soon and i was wondering if i made the right choice.

i want something reliable and versatile, and i decided on the ibanez rg2550 (btw i plan to swap out the pickups at a later date).

im going to be playing through a peavey valveking 212, and just wanted to know if its the right guitar really.

if it helps i play stuf from jeff buckley to satriani, so the versatility is important. i was looking at some jacksons, and wondered whether they would be better?

i just need a bit of help fro you guys with experience really lol o nd i am going to play it before i buy it but id like to know which models to look at.

and could you keep any suggestions as no more than 700 quid

thnks

The only real advise anyone can give on this subject is to go out and try as many different guitars as possible; no one can tell you if an Ibanez or a Jackson would be better because with the budget you have the only real difference should be the look and feel of the instrument which is, obviously, all down to taste.

That guitar + pickup change = A+

Good choice.

If you want to save up a little more, get a USA Jackson SL1 or SL2.

Other than those 2 jacksons, you cant get any better in that price range for a shredders guitar. Carvin is an exception as well ;]

I can't stand Ibanez guitars, especially the RG series. I've owned one for the past year and just recently sold it

I own an Ibanez. It is quite good and has a very nice sound. If you're gonna go with one, right on.
