    Plz help me with this.
    I am looking to buy an electric guitar. My budget is around 20-22k. There are two guitars that currently i am thinking of. One is the Ibanez GRG 170 DX and the other is ESP LTD M-50. Please suggest me out of these two which is better. For amp i am thinking of Roland Micro-Cube. I am looking for guitar to play leads so plz suggest at the earliest.

    Thanks In Advance

    don't shortlist guitars at the first place. be open to every frikkin' guitar in your range. and second advice, don't shortlist bullcrap guitars when you have thousand times better ones.

    Exactly... Those are not very good guitars, mate... The GRG might be somewhat passable but the M 50 is crap.

    And if you've got a 22k budget why shortlist 12k guitars in the first place?

    Do you really need a guitar with Floyd Rose?... coz a pain changing stings on them when they snap and also is difficult to get the action right!. I would suggest you should also check out Epiphone guitars.They are pretty good. And before buying any guitar play it. Make sure it suits your style.

    W-H-O said he needs FR?

    And on the contrary, It's not necessary that they snap, huh, you are VAI?

    (Recalling) ultrabot suggested me once,
    "Tremolo under 35k is crap", so nothing can be done with 22k. The guitars I suggested are the best for you, choose from them.

    Slightly off topic, just general,
    Which is the best Ibanez Edge Trem?
    Cause I saw that the RG350DX has the Edge III one, which has a bad rep for the tuning stability, but is placed in the Herman Li Signature too? So why does he uses it?

    I think his budget is 22k for the entire rig... that means 6k for the amp and the remaining 16k for the guitar..

    The Ibanez RG 321 if you can find it. I think they are out of production. No whammy, but great guitar for the price.

    ^RGR 321EX is there, methinks. RG321MH is out of production.

    I have a Cort EVL-X4 I am thinking of selling away. It sells for 24 at Musician's friend and I'm willing to sell it for 18. No strings on it at the moment, as I haven't played it for over 6 months and also because I have two Lespauls I usually rely on. Contact me at if interested. Guitar was bought in November and I have only used it for 4 months.
