Classier guitars?

I'm looking for a new guitar (preferably Ibanez) but I'm looking for something that looks metal, like a shredder's guitar (see Ibanez RG) but with a classy aesthetic along with it. I would really really like an Ibanez RG with a sunburst finish and cream binding. I've looked around and can't really find anything in the $300-$600 price range like that but maybe theres an older discontinued model or other brand I can try to look for on ebay or anything? Any help is appreciated.

EDIT: Just to make it clear, I don't want only an Ibby, I'm just using that as an example for a sharp looking, shredding guitar.

Can't get much more classy then a PRS, even the SEs. The most stereotypically shred worthy SE, though, would probably be the Torero, but that's about $1000. You could make pretty much any guitar a shredder, though.



EDIT-
The only sunburst RG I can think of is the Apex 100.

^All those are definently not in his price range. Granted, the Apex 100 probably isn't either...

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I found EXACTLY what I was looking for, an Ibby SZ520-

From what I've read, it was a 2007 model but It's been discontinued for a couple years. I've found a couple on ebay and other places for about $400!

Jackson SLATQH all the way





Bear in mind these are not in production any more, so you'll have to buy used. It is the best 'classy' metal guitar in my opinion. It has the same woods as a Les Paul, but with a Soloist shape, 25.5" and shreddy Jackson neck. It is out your price range, but well worth it. They can be picked up for just over $1000 I believe.

Parkers are the epitome of classy guitars IMO, but they're stupidly expensive

Have a look at the Ibanez Artcore range too. There are some nice double cutaway shred guitars, built much like old skool tele thinlines. Very nice and cheap 2nd hand too.
