    i need help regarding buying an electric guitar.m budgets around 11k .i generally play soft rock,alternative,and sometimes metallica and seems that the ibanez grg170dx and washburn N1 fit my bill best.i cant seem to choose between them(though i gotta say the ibanez looks more chic with its black colour and the better fretboard)

    That Ibanez u r talkin bout has the worst pickup in Ibanez series!!! So, think twice b4 going for it...Washburn iz better i think,.....

    But, if u really want to buy a good guitar (wid Floyd Rose) within 11-12K, go for samick guitars...

    Ok for an 11k budget the Floyd Roses aren't licensed and that makes them problematic. And the low range Ibanez and washburns suck. And if Soft rock, why not a Strat?

    I second that, for soft rock and the like, this would be an ideal guitar. Dude, you don't only buy a guitar, you also buy an image. A squier or the avion would actually not only give you the sound, it would also get you the image (kirk hammet plays an ESP LP- lookalike too). Speaking of ESPs, why don't you look at the ESPs too? Also, if your budget is less, don't try to fit in floyd rose and stuff, because for that price you won't get the real deal. Stick to the basics and you will get a good guitar for your money.

    like ppl have said, try ditching the floyd rose and get a good fixed bridge axe instead...try for the ESPs

    I forgot the model :p:

    GB3 model has tremolo i think...
    Samick has another one (black single plate body) which has floyd rose bridge but not lisenced.......Up to u now....

    But, if u go wid my suggestion, don't buy a floyd rose's really tough to maintain.....The model Devil suggested iz better..

    they arent hard to maintain........once u LEARN how to use it and use it for a while it could make ur guitar feel and play like heaven
