550s are very good back for yer buck, but if you want 'top of the line' the JC RG8--- are up there. Ibanez quality can vary, so you really should try before you buy. (saying that, I didn't for my RG8670, and I LOVE that. But then again, how many shops in England HAVE JCs in stock? )

You could probably get an RG3270 or RG3270M(if you'd like a maple fretboard!) for about 1095.

True, I got one and Im extremely happy with it. I don't think you can find something much better out there with that money.

If you can find one at that price, it's a no-brainer, the RG8670

RG3270M. im saving up for one
You can also try the RG8570 J Custom. A few differences, and 80 pounds more expensive

Re: Best ibanez j custom or prestige for budget 1200

The guy has £1200 to spend, so why are people suggesting 2550's and 1570's? I'd look at the JC's for sure, also worth checking out is the RGT220.

Ant, I think people are suggesting things from all over the Prestiege spectrum, because 'Best j custom or prestiege' is quite vague. People have different conceptions of 'best' - i.e. value for money (2550, etc) versus top of the line (8670, etc)

But in the end, all Prestiege and JCs kick arse, if set up well.

Am I wrong?

I presume its the rg8570 and the Rg3120 that are the best of the lot then.

Re: Best ibanez j custom or prestige for budget 1200

No, though they are both great guitars. If you have a max of £1200 ($2240) and you are willing to get second hand you can get a vast multitude of j-customs or prestiges. Even the rarer ones.
