Here the RGT 320q <a href="http://www.giggear.co.uk/home/index.php?m=shop&prodid=3715" target="_blank">http://www.giggear.co.uk/home/index.php?m=...amp;prodid=3715</a> is more expensive than the JEM?!?
The RGT 320q looks really cool, but doesn't have any single coils (I prefer the pick-ups in the JEM too smile.gif )


When I bought it was cheaper than JEM. It seems JEM price went just a little bit down, while 320q is fixed...
Not having the middle single coil is not really a problem. It is more of a choice. The intermediate positions still sound single coil. wink.gif In the middle position of RGT 320q is double humbucker, while the JEM will use the middle single coil. From what I researched the 320q pickups are pretty much PAF pros. So it is also a matter of choice.

thanks for all of the replys.

Barnea, I'm sure you're aware that the JEM is a different animal somewhat, in that while you get humbucking tones from all of your choices,(except the Strat), the JEM also gives you vibrato options you can't get from any of the other guitars you mentioned, (even the Strat where tuning problems are concerned). It really depends on what style you are going for. Hope this helps.

Hey guys! Thank you so much for all of the fast replys and the very good responses.

As I mentioned above, I now have a basic Fender Stratocaster (that i bought for about 1000$) a little after I started playin (untill than I only had a classic guitar that belonged to my father).

When I was looking for an electrical guitar my 2 possibilities were the stratocaster and a Jackson Dinkey. I really wanted a Jackson guitar since Metal is defentaly my preffered type of music, but I went on the stratocaster since I knew that i can't only play metal, and the stratocaster basicly fits every style..

Now after playing the guitar about 4-5 years i've decided i want a guitar that will be fit my style the best.
1. The Gibson SG i very cool looking, the fact that the neck begins when the body ends could be useful when playing fast metal solos on the higher frets, but I don't know if it's sound is best for me.

2. Gibson Les Paul if i choose this guitar it means i'll go on playing cleaner things more, since it has a very smooth voice (in my opinion) that fits best distortion-less playin.

3. the Ibanez JEM is the guitar I like the most here since I heard it a couple of time (never played on it though) and it has a very sharp voice which I like. If I go on that guitar, I'll probably play more metal on it.

well now I just need to get money, and go to actually play on these guitars.. biggrin.gif

If you like metal, then you cant go wrong with a Jackson. Try out a SLSMG if you get the chance, it packs a punch and handles great. + it wont cost you an arm.

I like Ibanezes alot though, i have an RG and i think it's a very versatile guitar. But i'm not a JEM fan.. i think they are seriously overpriced and there's a huge hole in them!

If you need something for heavy playing, I suggest you check out those GIbsons and possible Jacksons too if you can find a good piece. Trond has a nice model with great pickups, so if you find something similar in the stores around you that would be great. With good ol' Gibson on the other hand - you really can't go wrong wink.gif

wait, i thought the ibanez JEM is good for metal, no?

there is a various of Jacksons at the guitar store i'm going to visit such as

Jackson PC1 Phil Collen (3500$)
Jackson SL2H Soloist Yellow Bengal (3700$)
and the cheaper ones such as the WRMG Warrior and the DK2M Dinkey (Snowhite) but i want a better quality guitar than these two.

JEM is a versatile guitar, so it should be fine for metal. But if you are really into metal you should try RG or S prestige series. By the way, they are also versatile. I play hard rock, funky, blues, whatever with mine...
I never had the chance to play a soloist. From internet reviews the SL1 seems to be pretty much on pair to Ibanez RGT 320q (neck-thru, ultimate playabiliity, ...)

If you have the possibility to put your hands on this:

That should be the ultimate Ibanez metal guitar. Specs are insane!

Too expensive, to me price doesn't match the quality.

should cost at least 800$$$, I suppose you pay the name on it a lot more than the guitar itself...sorry it's just what I think

Buyt any other ibanez with low pro edge instead and maybe change the pick-ups

Is the Egen out yet? I've been dying to have a go on one. It looks great!

I just called the Ibanez distributors in the U.K. here the Egen will not be out until late summer and will have a whopping price tag of £1,800 ($3,500) ohmy.gif

That is so much money!
