So umm, I'm planning to buy a new Electric Guitar, but I can't choose between these two - SA120 or RG321 / RG321MH (Either of the RG321 or MH Model, depends on the availability in my country)... I like playing MetalCore, mostly Bullet for my Valentine, Slipknot, Killswitch Engage songs...

I need some help on choosing ?

Thanks in advance

dont bother, get a guitar without a tremolo. you arguably arent really going to need it in metalcore.

EDIT: i also find that RG strings bend really easy, so heavy chording is hard. the ones at the store i played them at werent set up completely right though.

RG for me. i dislike the SA. look for the S320, although it has a trem.

They maybe had lighter strings you dumb...

Ibanez SA series has a tad thicker neck than RG and different pickup. And also, most RG are flat top while SA is flat back with curved top.

SA has SAT trem which is quite alright but if you're not going to use it then go for a RG hardtail. Just for the tuning issues.
