Please recommend me a fast neck IBANEZ that's good looking

I'm looking for an Ibanez guitar with the following attributes, don't know if one exists :

-has at least 1 single coil and 1 humbucker
-fast neck
-not all solid-black or dark-solid color(I love quilted or flamed finishes)
-would prefer 24 frets(but not a big deal)
-whammy bar



I like the 1570, but I find the glittery color kinda ugly. I don't want something that looks too heavy-metal 'ish.
I would LOVE a guitar with a finish like the SA260FM, 3120tw or 320fm, not too specific on colors, but I just want something that is not 1 solid color.

Is there an Ibanez out there with a fast neck, a nice finish and combo of single and humbucker? Limit is $1200.

Please help.

Thanks

Well, there is the RG2570, and it's available in 2 colours (if you live in Japan). You could also try the used market for the 5xx's and 7xx's,and it would run you about less than $500.

The RG3120's are always a good choice as well

Guitar Trader is having/had a blowout sale on '05 models and they're going for $900. Used one's would be around the same price but come with the PAF Pro and Tone Zone combo.

If you don't mind the old neck joint, the RG560 fits the bill. They are the biggest bargin of the ENTIRE RG family. The neck single coil gets that guitar little respect, but keeps the prices low. --Jason

or a VDY , PBK or VSK JEM - might be outside your budget though - the PBK is pretty black, and the VSK is pretty non-existent, but very cool!

I think they're gone. The site says they're out of stock. Too good to last!
