    This is my first post :)
    Links after links and im still not set on a Good Axe for myself.

    This will be my second elec guitar after a very disappointing first.

    Im searching for a elec guitar that will meet these
    1) age with me [:D] (quality must)
    2) budget within 20k (+- 3k)
    3) whammy must (floyd rose preferable)
    4) preferably H-S-H, or is it?

    I usually play metal (death,slayer and stuff) and i also love some clear,quite clean sound too.

    Among the model i considered are Ibanez RG350DX RG370DX and also GRG270DX.but now im now hopelessly lost after reading abt how entry level RGs suck and stuff.

    1) RG or not
    2) ESP,Jackson ? Heard they do have some good mid level
    3) or any other company?

    Not GRG, RG370DX is a decent choice. Jackson maybe, ESP LTD not so much.

    Buying from India? If not, maybe look for the Washburn X series.

    Chk out CORT guitars. They are cheaper than other brands and quite impressive. If u want a real good axe for 23K, try Ibanez or Cort.

    Nice

    Are RG370s and RG350s still available in India!?

    Cort seems impressive.but think only importing will get me one.
    Can you suggest models from Jackson and ESP which are comparable to RG370/350

    Thanks

    Pricey !

    Cort EVL-X4 seems killer !.Its not even featured in HarmonyCentral ! :)

    1)Where in india can i buy Cort !?

    2)RG370 and RG350 are really overpriced at Bajaao.com.Are there any Pocket friendly dealers for same in India? :D

    Retail will be cheaper. Cort is an Indian company or summat hence no harmony-central reviews.

    Im afraid its not.Believe they are based in S Korea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cort_Guitars) or they have a licensed manufacturer in India.

    Btw, Gettin one from abroad wont be cheaper than retail!?

    If you have someone to bring it in for you then it will be cheaper. But retail will still beat bajaao's prices AFAIK..
