So I decided to treat myself with a nice new guitar. I am fairly beginner and currently play on a no name/brand stratocaster. Tried a few models in store and liked Ibanez prestige line the most.

They only had one model in store from the prestige series so have not tried this specific model. Is it a good pick?

I see so many conflicting answers on woodtypes etc. Chose this model cause I preferred the looks http://www.ibanez.com/products/eg_de...178&color=CL01

Play mostly metal but would like to have good cleans as well.

Thanks for the input. Was also considering this one instead. Difference in color and woods used. http://www.ibanez.com/products/u_eg_...198&color=CL01

Any of the woods used better than the other? For looks I can't quite decide either.

I wouldn't get too caught up on the body wood (whatever ash or basswood slab is used). Since Ibanez didn't acquiesce to Rich yet the maple fretboard model is still showing "prestige fret treatment"... so other than the rosewood more likely having the "prestige fret treatment" meeting expectations... there really is no "better" here only different looks really.

Well that would have been a no brainer for me... I would have gone with the Nebula Green Burst! That's just me though, I love green guitars, especially a green burst over a nice wood grain like that has.

After seeing how they look on YouTube instead of pictures I'm probably going with that as well.
