Dilemma: RG3120 or RG1280 ?
the ideal axe for me (at that price range) would be the 3120 in 2-1-2 pickup config, in VV.
In addition to what Jono said, you can read about these necks in the GUITARS area of jemsite. They're all good in short and the binding is strictly cosmetic.
The Blue Black Sunburst color is very different from the blue 3120. You haven't mention price being a problem but if that is a factor your decision might be easier when you final costs shipped to your door. Good luck... glen
