what he said.
it makes A LOT of difference which models you're comparing. if you are getting a SL1 for that price - hell yes get it!
i'm guessing you are talking about an RG1570 - good solid guitar and IMHO is a better value than a Jackson counterpart for that price.
what features are you wanting in a guitar?
we need a little more info.

Re: Jackson Or Ibanez

Well, when it comes down to it, Jacksons were made for metal. An Ibanez can also do the same, but that's usually associated with shred, and maybe Vai-like songs. Well, my 2 sen anyway.

Re: Jackson Or Ibanez

I had a Jackson Pro Fusion-SS. It was a SWEET guitar for sure and EXCELLENT for Metal. In fact, the only guitars I've ever owned that I like better are my Jems Again, it all comes down to which models your are talking about. The Jackson Pro's are the High End model Jacksons.

Ugh...hahaha. If it's a Jackson Pro series or USA select series get the Jackson. At that price I'm assuming it's a prestige Ibanez and not the lower end. I'd take an SL-3 over the RG 1570 personally, what do you guys think? I have an RG and a Charvel, so I guess I kind of have the best of both worlds. The Charvel isn't a soloist though.
