Today while searching for a new guitar I found out just how many Ibanez RG guitars there are so I was wondering.... Which one of them is the best?

Answer us this: what does "best" mean to you?

Perhaps then there could be an answer to your question in return.

By best I mean in opinion which do you like more, or, which looks, feels, or just all around plays better.

This one. I guess Jcustoms and Custom shop orders are even better.

High end Prestige RG with a mahagony body and maple top (which sounds 100times better than basswood imho)
Great crafting, great hardware (good pickups on an Ibanez? Yes!) and a playabillity to die for.
