So a buddy of mine is looking for an Ibanez RG. Probably looking for a used (less expensive and more options). He plays more classic rock (RUSH, Beatles, Led Zep, etc) but also some newer rock (borderline metal) so I told him HSS or HSH would be the best route. From personal experience I told him to avoid Gio and get a "true blood" Ibanez. Fixed bridge is a must. No trems of any kind. The real heard part though, is we're in Canada, and right now with the exchange rate, everything is ridiculously expensive, so even Gio's are running nearly 350-400$. Budget is about 450, maybe 500 tops (Canadian $). I've been asked about what gear this will run through, but he hasn't locked that in yet, so I couldn't say anything more specific than solid state amps, and basic pedals (chorus, fuzz, OD, distortion, maybe reverb and delay). So anybody got any ideas on particular models that fit this description? I browsed the Ibanez Wiki but the search and sort functions really suck.
Oops. Read the title as Guitar, gear and accessories. Will do. And thanks for pointing out I forgot to discuss location. That is indeed the majority of the problem right now.
