Hey everyone, this being my first post on this site (long time reader, longtime fan of Ibanezrules too!), I figured I'd introduce myself. Been playing guitar about 10 years now and have 2 guitars. One is a 1976 LP Custom that my father gave me (passed down) and my second is a 2001 (i think) Ibanez RG3120 Prestige in the red.
Time has come for me to look into buying another guitar, and I've been everywhere trying to find the next guitar for me. After careful consideration I've decided that I want another Prestige, but I'm not sure which one to get.
I know people here probably sift through posts like this daily, but maybe you could offer me a little guidance. I've been eyeballing a few guitars, mainly:
I play mostly death/black metal, but also into shred and just a general fan of all types of music. I'm looking for a guitar that will be similar to my RG3120 in feel. I'm leaning towards the RG2550 because the price is excellent, and I think it would be closer to my RG3120 (being bolt-on). Budget isn't a big problem, however the less I pay the happier I am.
One thing is that no places around here have any of these guitars, and no one I know has one either. One guitar I did get a chance to play was the RGA121 which felt really nice in my hands and felt similar to my RG. The problem was it doesn't have a floyd, which turned me off immediately.
Anyways, I'm sorry for the longwinded post, but can anyone assist me in my decision? Thank you.
