Going for the Ibanez is *******. Dont waste your money. For rock or anything even slightly 'heavier' i would recommend a Greg Bennet AV-6 or AV-3, anyone you can afford. Cort Z-4 is a brilliant guitar, amazing sound, looks and you cannot get better value for money, anywhere. I got mine for 15k from Delhi and for the money its more then I could imagine. The EMG HZ do a really good job actually, you just have to get the right settings from your pedals and amps and they are REALLY tight. For those who dont know, Cort is one the largest manufacturers of guitars in the world, they make the low ends for all your 'big' companies.
I assume your a beginner? Dont buy any guitar with a Floyd Rose or any other complicated bridge system, it'll fu.ck you over, seriously. Dont look at the Ibanez's, and the Epiphone ep100 is a shit of a guitar. Its just selling because it resembles a Les Paul, vaugely. Look into Washburns also.
