      The RG421 has a very thin neck.
      in fact, lets see: the ibanez webpage states that the guitar has a "Wizard III 3-piece maple neck" Quick google use and:
      List of neck types - Ibanez Wiki
      Here you can see the dimensions of the Wizard III and compare them to the other ibanez necks, including the ones you've tried before. 19/21 mm thickness (that's freaking thin :lol:)
      And about the setup, generally Ibanez does a good job setting up the guitars, but sometimes the dealers mess with the setups before shipping (sometimes for the better, others for the worse) the good thing about the RG421 is that it has a fixed bridge (not some tremolo nonsense :P) so lowering/raising the strings is very easy, you just need a small allen key and voila, action is fixed.

      Sadly, I have no experience with the Washburn XMpro2, or any washburn electric guitar, to be honest :confused: All the washburns I've tried were acoustics :(
      I will say one thing, though. Nowadays It shouldn't bother you where a guitar is made. I have tried korean, indonesian, chinese, american, etc. And I've seen some VERY good chinese guitars and some awful american ones.

      back to topic, I would say that if you have the chance to try the washburn, or they offer you a nice return policy, then my all means, order it, if you dont like it, send it back. spec-wise I would say its an amazing deal. If you don't have the chance to try it, you could potentially end up with a guitar you might not like as much, so I would go the surefire path and buy the Ibanez, that thing is all kinds of awesome for a budget guitar, and it makes a nice MOD platform, change pickups, tuners, bridge, even a refinish at one point. It's a great guitar.
      Anyway, Ive talked enough. Wish you luck in your hunt!
