Hi, I'm a beginner guitarist. I had bought a new Player Series Stratocaster on recommendation that it was pretty much unbeatable value. It is high quality, but I find the action a bit high, the neck a bit narrow (I have large hands), and the single coil sounds are not my favorite. Not a quack guy. I'm looking for something highly playable, versatile enough to be at home playing metal (good humbuckers?) and still sounding rich when playing soft chordy jazzy stuff. Been looking at an Ibanez Genesis RG550, a PRS SE Custom 24 Floyd, or something like an Ibanez Fireman, even though it seems expensive for a Chinese Ibanez. What would be the best value and most playable, versatile among these? PRS would be the cheapest at around $750. The RG is around $1K. The Fireman is the same price but MIC, not MIJ like the RG. Should I expect good rebates on these with Black Friday coming up? Any other comments or suggestions?
