Welcome to Jemsite!
Ibanez, fixed bridge, 300 pounds . . . you are basically looking at an ART100 for 300 or the fixed bridge Gio for 170. A Squier Telecaster would be a good fit for your requirements, too, except for the Ibanez part of course.
I started as an adult player with a 2006 ARC100 and it is a great starter guitar for the money. They are Chinese made but well built and perfectly acceptable. Not "great tone", clean or otherwise, but that is really hard to find at that price point. More than good enough for a beginning player to learn what your idea of "great tone" actually is.
Not trying to dissuade you from Ibanez, but it would be a good idea for you to find a store and play everything in your price range that you can get your hands on. Even if you can do nothing more than fret a couple of notes and strum a little, some guitars will just feel better and sound better to you than others. Follow your ears and your hands.
Can you tell us more about your musical interests and level of guitar skill? That will help people make recommendations. Have no fear, we've all been there.
