Step up to an Ibanez Prestige.
The Ibanez S2170SE Electric Guitar has a mahogany body that's thin around the sides for comfort and thick around the DiMarzio IBZ pickups for tone. It's topped with a beautiful, special swirl ebony top ” great for looks and tone. The ZR tremolo bridge uses ball bearings for frictionless arming and fast return. 22 Jumbo frets offer easy playing for leads and chording, and Gotoh precision machine heads make tuning an easy and infrequent task.

I have the old version of this guitar, the s1620 I think, and it is great for metal and fast playing. From what I hear this model has changed over the years. Mine has the wizard 1 neck on it which is much faster than the wizard 2. This guitar is much easier to play on than any les paul or sg. You can reach every fret just fine. It is also nice that you can fit two batteries under the trem for EMGs or other active pickups. If you can get an older one on ebay or something, I would go with that. This guitar is still great though and looks cool, especially the black one.
The s2170se is the newest member of the S Prestige family. It is a sleek(ish) mahogany body guitar. It feels nothing like any other mahogany guitar. It is substantually lighter than most. The new 5 piece Wizard Prestige neck is very very nice. It is thicker than the Prestige 1 but IMO better constructed. It may take awhile to adjust to it if you are used to thicker Gibson type necks.The finish on the body is great. It has a mahogany body with a thin swirled ebony top. It seems to hold up very well. It is a natural finish so it doesn't scartch as easy as your typical lacqured guitar.The pick ups are decent. They are DiMarzio IBZs which are a low grade DiMarzio made for Ibanez. They are assembled in America but not actually made in America(there is a huge difference). The H S H configuration is my personal favorite. It allows a wide variety of tones if you use them effectively.The origonal Ss and Sabers (before around 2002) where alittle different. They were made in Japan and better crafted. The new Ss are exclusively made in Korea which means the Qualti Control is not as tight as it should be sometimes. These guitars have shallower neck pockets which lead to higher fret boards disallowing you to play about the 15th fret comfortably. Another issue is the thickness. Scence the "Golden days of Ibanez" they have thickened up the S substantually.In all honesty this doesn't really matter at all if you have never owned a S before. You wont notice the changes and you will probably love your axe. If you are a S vetran then well, you might need to consider this.Over all I love my Prestige. It is the second best Ibanez I own (next to my 90's 540). It may not be my main axe but I do love it still. For the price this guitar is great.
I'm sold. Ibanez over time has gradually won me over. The prestige series just keeps throwing stuff at me and finally this guitar showed up. The tone is unbelievable even on stock pickups which I would change out immediately for EMG 81/85s and an EMG single coil as well. The tremolo is super smooth. Body is surprisingly heavy probably due to all the hardware for the tremolo ect. Neck is really comfortable. I wish they had offered more finishes on this guitar. They're supposedly releasing new Prestiges this year with 24 frets and more finishes. I'll probably get one of these or an older Prestige if I can find one cause I play metal and among all the guitars I've played Ibanez has always been superior
