Exclamation NEXT GUITAR?????

hey guys i have about a year and 3 months playing guitar. so far i have two guitars; an ibanez grx40 from a starter kit that i customized with EMGs and an ibanez rg120 that i got presidents day from the guitar center sale. im thinking of another guitar to get but im not sure which one to get. it must be ibanez though since its the only brand i trust. maybe an rg??? it needs to have a double locking tremolo and be a good guitar for metal / distortion. something thats made out of wood that goes good with EMGs i guess. i would really appreciate any help i can get. thanks

I think you should hunt down older RG's, like 5xx series and so on. They're rather cheap for the quality and they'll certainly work with emg's. I think cardboard box would sound pretty reasonable with emg's mounted.

If you find a nice 5** series RG, you'll see there isnt any need for EMG's
In my opinion,a guitar that is fitted with EMG's always sounds like EMG's. you don't hear the guitar but only the pickups.
So therefore ive you buy a guitar made out of real tonewoods try non-active pickups to get the best of both worlds.
(unless you realy dig the EMG sound ofcourse).

Anyway, as stated in the reply above witch i agree with,get yourself a nice older 5** series you'll be amazed!! is offline
