I also agree with dimebag... ibanez lower end models are shitty. And higher end models are more for speed metal. And it is not suited for alternative/classic rock at all, in my opinion. Les pauls are your best choice and if you take my advise spend a major part of your budget in your guitar... effects can only help you so much if your guitar isn't really very good. But Korg AX100G is not bad... I've been using it for a few years now and am in no mood to change any time soon.
@dimebag... I AGREE! The metal tone was crappy. The US hi gain was ok.. I usually made my custom tones with it....

Full of hate full of pride...
