I have been playing for about 2 years and need a new guitar,

I currently have a Yamaha ERG121c which is a good beginner guitar, but now need something more suitable to progress. I mainly play metal and rock and have a budget of £300 to £400.

i was thinking of buying an ibanez rg?
Epiphone SG-400. solid guitar. the RG is a nice one to. play a bunch and see which one you like i guess
Epiphone G-400
Yamaha Pacifica (Mod on hold due to procrastination)
Rocktron Banshee
Marshall 10CD

I've never smoked before but it looks like fun.
I would save up to buy a Schecter or something.

I HATE Ibanez necks, they are so light and thin, it makes the guitar feel cheap.

I don't HAVE a Schecter, but I have tried out 1076495760456983 of them and from what I've played, I think Schecter is way better.

EDIT: I am not "Dissing" Ibanez, the sound is pretty good.

but, I do NOT like the feel (skinny necks, etc.).

EDIT2: The Epi G400 is a great one too (For your price range), but if you save up for a nicer guitar, then you won't regret it!!!

Last of all, the golden rule of buying guitars.

Schecters are good for the money - they're just plain good, actually. Ibanez is good, but like imafool18 said - their necks are thin and an aquired taste - some guys love them, some hate them.

And yes, imafool18, sore-wa nihongo desu. (that is japanese.)
Do you feel warm within your cage?
