    People have had good experiences with the RG321. Haven't heard much about the Bennet.

    Here's what you can do(which is what I would) Play both guitars with the amp you have.. and play your favourite song. See which sounds better and which feels better in your hands. Leave the brands to the ameteurs.. We all know no two guitars are the same.. and more often than not.. we are surprised by guitars which we have least expectations from..
    But if it's the brand you want to go with, your choice of music would need a telecaster, so the bennett is a better choice.. Underrated, loses out to the Fender Teles on the brand appeal...
    And one last thing.... don't you think a blues/jazz guitarist would look wee bit daft holding a metal guitar like RG ;-)

    Really tough one
    i'd say go for the ibanez if you play more of metal
    and go for the greg bennet if you play more of the softer ones..

    But i can say this, the RG does softer genres better than the GB does metal..

    also this greg one has 22 frets only. while rg 321 has 24. hope this won t make much more difference for an intermediate( or say a beginner ) like me ... in playing

    and also this greg benetts shape wont hamper my playing in the the last frets . pls have a look at this


    i think that for a beginner it would be wise to invest in smthinh like 11k not paying attntn to looks and after 2-3 years go in for something like les paul or givson .. wat say ????.............

    tonnes of confusion............

    RG321 is more versatile than the Greg Benetts FA2. I hav played Av3 and Av6 models of benetts. They are extremely sweet sounding guitars. U can call them as Poor Mans Gibson. They are versatile. And those hav duncan designed pickups too. Fa2 models are mostly used for playing Rhythm and sweet solos. U can play metal on those guitars but it just wouldnt sound right.
    RG321 with a very good amp can giv u a wide range of sound from clean to Metal.
    My pick would be RG321 over Fa2
    and Avion Av6 over RG321 ....lol...:)

    no doubts the rg simply because of the wizard neck...both guitars will sound pretty sad with their stock pickups...But with a decent pickup change,the rg will be the extremely versatile..Always playability n comfort before looks and brands.

    More of metal heads and wannabe shredders here... hence hard to sell a telecaster in this forum :) guess you should just play them both and then listen to your heart .. i've had a tele, a fender strat , an ibanez in the past and now settled with a les paul for life. It's easier to get your blues/jazz sound with the tele, and also look the business when you play it.
