What do you think is the best fixed bridge Ibanez?

I love the PGM301, but what besides this?

RG421 w/ dimarzio pups swapped in.

Or current, RGR421FM with new pups maybe?

But I don't think there's much better than the PGM301.

PGM's are sweet. I'm partial to my JS6000, personally.

Same here JS6 is a great guitar. In a sense, i am eager to try the new JS with fixed bridge, but i don't know if i want one though.

I would like a JS though...

The SZ series is pretty badass.

After the 301, it's the RG1521. --Jason

My favoutite is the JS6 as far as tone goes, but I'd probably prefer the JS2000 if I was going to gig with it regularly. BUT I didn't like the colour on that one.

For tuning stability, I'd go for the JS2000 as well. But like you, that finish does nothing for me.

Re: What do you think is the best fixed bridge Ibanez?

I have the SZ4020 and it is a sweet tone monster.

The "best" would be too subjective to answer but I would vote for the JS2000, PGM301, RGA121/321 and on a budget the RGT42dxfx.

I have always enjoyed the SF470TR myself and I also agree with the RGA321F...

Once you get used to the scale length they are nice, toneful guitars. Here's the one I still own
