A friend of mine is looking for a guitar, he wants to start playing again and wants a used cheap (150-180€ tops) guitar with or without a trem it doesn't matter, but not something that is a complete POS, I told him look at Ibanez/Schecter and managed to make him forget about the Warlock BC Rich's... he come up with this ones he saw for sale:
- Ibanez RG 420 FA (175€ maybe negotiable)
Only thing I find and it seems its the same is the RG420FAWN on that catalog page.
Basswood body and the infamous LO TRS II
Anyone had one? Is it worth it?
- Ibanez SA 32 EX (150€ negotiable)
Mahogany Body regular Bridge and only 22 medium frets
- Ibanez RG370DX (150€ negotiable)
Basswood Body Edge III or Edge pro II trem 24 Jumbo frets
My instinct tell's me the best bet might be the SA, but if you can give me opinions.
Not sure about those, but I have an RG450M which is probably a step above the RG370. IMO, I'd tell your friend to just wait and get a used RG550. I have several "cheap" guitars, and I now regret buying them all. All of them have something wrong with them, or they just suck tonally, or both. Good luck.
