Alright, I'm back for more advice...
This time, I have $700 credit to spend at a Guitar Center (or will in a couple weeks.)
I'm looking at used Ibanez RG. I'm thinking RG570 but fixed... no trem. I'll probably drop some decent pickups in it, that's up in the air.
I'd like some feedback on the guitar, though. I figure I'll spend between 300 to 500 on that. Is there a better RG hardtail to be had for hard rock / metal?
Get an RGA121/321 if you want fixed bridge. That or an RG1451 as it's already a set bridge also. Or just get an old RG and block off the trem. Also, fuck blackouts.
