Re: 27" scale VS 25" scale
I have a rg2077xl, and I am selling it. I also tune to A. Why? Well, the 27" scale length, it just doesn't seem to work for me. Also, the sound is different. 27" is more hifi, better low end note definityion, but starts to sound a bit tinny in the high range, and the strings, despite being more taught, just seem to be looser in a weird way.
The 25.5" guitars I find easier to play, despite thicker string gauges, and just have a better midrange and fullness to them overall.
It's all basically down to preference. For me, 27" just isn't right, which is a shame, as it's an awesome guitar.
