Recommend me a nice guitar for $600 or LESS

Hey everyone! so im getting a nice fat check today and decided I want to buy a new guitar. I have numerous Ibbys, a schecter hellraiser and a ltd ec-1000. The problem is im away at school and I only have my Ibby rg7321 tuned standard and rg350 tuned to Eb. I figured I need a guitar mainly for drop C because thats the other tuning I play in and I hate tuning my 7 to that

So can anyone recommend me a nice guitar with no trem for around $600 or less?

6-stringer under $600. Go for Agile

Lots of threads on here about them, but they are supposedly great bang for the buck.

Ive played a few Agile 7s and an 8 but not too sure if I would like the 6s. I believe there is a used one at Sam Ash il have to try out.

Anyone have any experience with an Ibby RGD321, the Ltd MH-350NT or the
Ltd H-351NT?

Used is the way to go my friend. You will get a much better guitar for your money.

You can probably find a used RGA121 for $600, if you are a little patient. Probably the best non-trem 6'er Ibanez has made in years.

If you can scrounge together shipping costs, this LTD is a phenomenal guitar. I paid +$800 for mine new, but DCGL is blowing them out for $600. http://www.drumcityguitarland.com/dr...P1550C428.aspx

EDIT: I realize how contradictory I just was. But a clearance new guitar is basically the same as used, as far as depreciated value is concerned.

Yeah I really want an RGA121......its the only Prestige Ibanez I will ever own
I was going to sell a guitar or two to get one but if i can find one soon i will definitely buy it.

Still keep the suggestions coming. Im curious about what others will recommend.

If you're looking in the used market, see if you can find a Jackson SLSMG. I got mine (a little beat up) for $350 on Ebay. Japanese Jacksons are generally great guitars for the money, especially used.

Godin Redline1, 2, or hb. The Redline 3 has a tremolo. I believe the 1, 2 and hb models can all be had for under $600, they are North American made, fyi.

The Ibanez RGA32 is a pretty nice guitar for the money as well. I recently played the new RGD321, and I was not as impressed with it, for some reason. However, it is somewhere around $500 as well. Not a bad guitar for tuning down.

I believe the Japanese Jackson dinky (pro series), with a TOM is around $600 as well (and it comes with a case).

The PRS SE Mike Mushok ($620ish) is a pretty nice guitar, it is a baritone, which would make tuning down to drop C a piece of cake. It comes with a bound ebony fret board.
