Buy me the FP and you take the RG

Have you played them both? Which one felt better, sounded better, etc...?

Don't rush, and just take your time comparing the two

I concur. Buy both, play them, figure out which you like, and then give me the one you don't like. I'll happily pay the shipping charges : )

Sorry... I'm stuck at work, and I'm effin bored... and tired, and angry, and I have a headache, and things.

But yeah, play them both and figure out which you like better. I on the other hand am an impulse buyer and just buy things. I didn't play ANY of my guitars prior to purchase except for one, which is the one I hate the most, go figure. And beside one other that I don't like much, the other 3 I absolutely love.
It's kinda like getting a tattoo.. It all depends on what you want to live with. Guitars are like women, except for the fact they don't ask for money, you don't have to take them out, you can throw a beating on them without getting charges pressed against you, you can verbally abuse them, put them away when you're done with them... so actually, no, not like women at all. But I personally love the Jem line. I will someday own a FP... Why not just get both? When in doubt, buy them all.
My $0.00125 (left over from this weekend)
All in good fun, it's just my opinion : )

Differences are quite noticeable. AANJ vs. the old style block joint, pick-ups, neck profile, and body woods. If I'm not mistaken, the RG3120 is mahogany and will sound muddier. You really have to play both through a similar rig that you are using now. Only you can make this choice. Good Luck!
