Default Need some Ibanez Help

Hey guys,
Anyone know anything about these guitars? I have a chance to pick one up in a trade but don't know much about them. Any idea of value? Does this seem like a good trade? This is a pic that the potential trader sent me.





This is what I'm looking to trade. Fender US Strat with Custom Shop Fat 50 Pickups, RS wiring, Graphtech Saddles and it's been Plekked.

Its all a matter of personal taste. Personally if I were to pick between the two guitars I'd go for the mapleboard Fender US Strat. They play nice, a good solid guitar and since its a bolt on neck it can be replaced if need be. Problem with the neck thru guitars is if the neck breaks, you are screwed. I do not know much about that Ibanez model...the wood looks very nice. Would I trade a Fender for the Ibanez...probably not. But thats just me...you have to decide what you like best in a guitar.

I'm not really a fan of Ibanez anymore,
but i'd take that trade.

If you decide you don't like it,
you can always flip it on ebay
pretty easily.
