Hello everyone First of all, I do not know if I should post about Ibanez guitars in here, I don't understand much, but it seems like this forum is Fender users only and I do not know what stratocaster is yet, so, if I'm in the wrong place, please just let me know. Now leading to the subject that I want to discuss. I want to learn to play electric guitars and for that reason, I'm searching for an Ibanez for me to buy. The reason why I've chosen Ibanez is that I like rock, metal, and some other styles in that niche of music, being Ibanez the most recommended guitars in all researches I've made (quantity of recommendations). The problem is, I've seen lots of people saying Ibanez Gio Guitars are crap, others complain about the RG 270, 350, 450 (people complaining about its hardware), etc, leaving only some I consider unaffordable and expensive, such as the RG 550 for example. I'm open to purchasing a used guitar if that means more overall quality, I just don't want to suppress too much the goal of $300,00. (also, don't need to share links here, since I live in Belo Horizonte, MG - Brazil). So far I've seen people complaining more about Bridges, tuning loss, and the wood used on Ibanez guitars. [EDITS] Also, I would like to know what's the difference between RG 450 and RG 460... is the upper number among the 4xx always better? 470>460>450? What are the differences between the RG 350 and 450? With all that said, please, please, could someone recommend me something that is decent and affordable among Ibanez guitars? Thank you very much, Best Regards.
