    hmm i would say if its rock jazz then both fender and ibanez would do. Even if u want to experiment with other kind of music it whould be easy. but if u want to go for heavier sound i think ibanez is a better choice from your list. think and ask others as i have a ESP right now(play a lot of heavy stuff) so cant really say as there are more experienced people in the board.

    dude as a personal advise i want you to buy a Ibanez for the start and stick with it.. i tried so many different stuff but nothing can keep up with ma Ibanez .. with your kinda budget i suggest go for Ibanez GRG-170DX Electric Guitar - Rs.12,400 ... am sure u won't be disappointed plus its so goooooodddd looking .. i luv Ibanez man

    STAY away from the Slammer n Squire.........Never used the Kramer so cant say But the Ibanez seems pretty good in your range.

    ull be just fine trust me ..but if ur so sceptical go in for the squire....will be good for u............or better yet why buy an electric guitar for JAL etc songs go in for a Good quality Yamaha/Fender acoustic ?

    The Devil is right

    Man Ibanez is cool for all kinds of music, it depends on the person. But as said by Devil if u r confused with it still then u should go for the fender. but u buy fender squire and decide to change a bit in ur musical direction then u wont regret it. Ibanez will suite all types. U decide and when u are out shopping play both of them and see which one u r comfortable with. i went in for a Fender stad strat i came out with a LTD - MH 100 haha so walk in to a shop and try out some of the guitars u like and see which one fits. what say?

    Alright dude check with others for the pickups.After checking the model specs. i found the the 170 one had a std ibanez bridge which is not a floyd. then 270 is a floyd(if u r not used with this bridge then i would recommend to skip it). Aright from the reviews i got the pickups or ok with the 170 model but not with the 270.(this purely through review not first hand) check with poeple who own them. the 170 looks fine dude. it will suite ur needs i think.But wait for the others!! cool dude

    Id suggest Skipping a Floyd Rose Bridge altogether if this is your first Electric.The Pick-ups in both dont matter that much they are alost of the same quality.The 170DX would suit you better IMHO.
