    Not just any Ibanez - look for a hard tail (=no whammy bar) RG series guitar (NOT GRG).
    AV3 is good, and you can also look at the Greg Bennett Torino TR3 (it should be around the same price). Depends more on what amp you use, really.

    Greg Bennett Torino TR3 looks great on bajaao.com but it has no reviews so i thougt it is not as good as av3.but i think it has good pickups than av3.thans ultrabot90 for the help.

    Np, check this out while you're at it. http://www.indianguitartabs.com/showpost.php?p=415976&postcount=35

    You're not likely to get a guitar with good pickups at this range. In fact, once you know what kind of sound you want, you should always switch out the stock pickups even on high end guitars (unless it's Cepheus pickups of Agile guitars/Custom Oni pickups of Oni Guitars ;)) with pickups that you know you like the sound of. Wood of the guitar also comes into play while selecting pickups, but selecting pickups comes into the picture *after* you get a good (tube) amp.

    TR, AV and RGs are much better than other crap you get at this price. The most noticeable difference should be feel - so play all three through the same amp (and the SAME amp which you have/will be buying). Remember that stuff like action, strings, and truss rod adjustments can be corrected to your tastes. Main thing might actually come down to the feel of the neck, access on the high frets, etc.

    Processor - You can buy my processor (I don't use it anymore because I moved into clean-and-no-effects stuff...jazz and classical :p)

    'Gregs' are not better than 'Ibanez'. No brand is better than another (except any known brand is usually better than a knock off Givson, Grason, and what not).

    WHICH Greg Bennett and you comparing with WHICH Ibanez? Avion AV6 vs a GRG, I'm sure the Avion wins. Ibby Prestige or LACS vs any Greg Bennett offering? I don't think so. So name your models :p

    ^IMHO, even an Avion AV1 beats Ibanez GRG... An Avion AV3 is definitely > GRG/GRX.

    Depends on how it is used. If the condition is good no scratches no dents or dings no damage no repairs done then it shud be worth 15k. take a look at the guitar and decide. At least ask for pics in case the guy stays far off.
