Question Want new guitar for USD 500 or less

So I'm buying a guitar for USD 500 approximately...


Here are my requirements: -

1. Should have a stable bridge, if LFR, need a good LFR, if Edge 3...ah well.
2. I love fast, flat necks!
3. Pickups: I hate overly boomy but muddy bass. SLIGHTLY lower bass but with good definition in highs would be nice.


With this in mind, I am stuck, having made the following short-list: -

1. Ibanex RGR320EX
2. Dean Vendetta 1.0 FR (or another FR Vendetta in this price range)
3. Ibanez GRG220DEX or 250P (the extra cash would go into pickups)
4. ESP-LTD MH-50


Which would the best choice? I am wary of the Dean's thick neck, since my other guitar is an RG320PG-P3 (I use it for show rather than substance).
Is there some other strong contender that I haven't considered? Please advice

Please also note that I shall be buying this from a store, and not off the internet, which means I might have to pay a little extra...

I am not looking for another PG. I wouldn't spend extra cash on the finish. I'd rather spend it on the essentials :-)

Re: Want new guitar for USD 500 or less

I was wondering, how does the Vendetta 1F compare against an RG370DX or an RGR320EX? Does it have any noticeable flaws? Since the body is very slim, does the thick neck get in the way too much?

I am going to check out the Vendetta vs the 370 or 320s hands-on, but I'd really appreciate your remarks...
