RG GOLD and RG METAL

I've seen the RG-METAL, played it, and i felt in love with her. It looks GORGEOUS, FANTASTIC in person, and i think, like the Jem 90, pictures don't do it justice. It was surely one of the nicest, prettiest guitars i've ever seen. I was stupid enough not to buy it, wasting too much time deciding if i liked more the RG-METAL or the Jem 7VWH. The day i decided to buy the RG-METAL it was sold. Imagine my stupid face when the guy told me...

I remember chatting with Armindo about this and keep in mind the Metal is quite EXPENSIVE overseas. Bottom line is it just wasn't meant to be. There *will* be another guitar to take it's place ... glen

Yeah they had the RG Metal here in Singapore at one time, but some little rich kid who already had a few jems and only could play 3 chords bought it. Never got the opportunity to try it though. But it looked really dull to me. The jem90 however was a nice one. Nicer than the metal IMHO.

Glen what's this about a guitar to take it's place? Tell tell!

Yeah, i talked to Glen a few times when it was for sale. It was expensive, the sales price was something like $2200, but the guy in the store lowered that to $1700 (including the J-Custom case). Ah, i live in Portugal, and the prices here are SLIGHTLY (read A LOT!!!) higher that US prices...

Do you have to see the RG Gold in person to really appreciate it? *I don't know, but to me it looks like the Krylon touch instead of the Midas touch.

I had an image of an RG with a gold finish like the chrome boy.

The RG Gold does look better in person.

Since it is covered in gold foil you can see the wood grain and it reflects a lot of light. It definitely doesn't look painted.

You really do have to see it in person. It is just like they say a gold leaf on a body then heavy on the clear (which really looks thick) but those pictures do it no justice....

Thanks for bringing it David, oh and before I forget the matching headstock was awsome......Gold Logo on Gold

There's *always* another guitar somewhere, just as there's always another lady
