Beginner level ESPs are crap.
So is the Ibanez GRG/GIO series.
I'm guessing you're a metal player starting out. Anyway, in this range,
for a superstrat - Ibby RG
for an LP - Greg Bennett Avion series
for an SG - Greg Bennett Torino series.
At this range, with a beginner amp (Roland Cube), you should be fine for practice.
Later, you can get a better amp (small tube amp), upgrade pickups and pedals, and you're intermediately provisioned for amateur performance.
