I have played the pgm301, but I have not played an rg550 aniv. It seems like they are both very similar guitars, the only big difference being that one has a fixed bridge and one has a double locking tremolo. So it basically comes down to that. They are both amazing guitars.

I painted Road Flare Red ones on my Road Flare Red guitar. Look:



You can't see them, but trust me, they are there. And now I play exactly like Paul, it's awesome!

RFR is awesome! I was like the first person in the country to put dibs on one of the RG20ths, and of course it was the RFR one. Love the guitar too, hope I never have the need to sell it.
