Re: RG870 - good sister guitar for JEM7v?
I tried out a couple of 870s.
Played well enough, but both had set-up problems which concerned me, considering the premium price point. The first had a fretting problem with high E on the second fret, where it would catch on the third fret. Everything else okay, but that sort of fret issue should have been caught in QC.
Second had buzzing all over the shop on the low E and A strings.
Shop offered to get them set up, but it would mean waiting a week, and I'm afraid I'm not that patient when shopping for a guitar.
The fretboard on both was interesting too. Seemed quite.... raw... compared to other Ibanezes I have played?
