Re: 2001 MIJ RG vs Genesis
I have an RG520QS from 2001. Essentially the late 90s early 2000 fugijen models were the precursor to what is now marketed as the prestige line. Incredibly they can be had for reasonable coinage.
I have the same model, but it may be a 2000... Amazing quality and picked up for way less that you'd pay for the "Prestige" name on the headstock.
