Well, thanks for the response.
I'm not looking for a metal shredder...I need a good all-round guitar.
650Ä is 935$.
No problem glad to help
O.K. for $935 you can get a SWEET guitar. I argee with tank
in that a rg is VERY versatile. My pick would be a early
rg550 with an original wizzard neck,if you like a thinner neck, or a wizzardII
for a little thicker neck. Go with a maple fret board if you want
a little brighter tone. I would go with an edge or lo-pro edge bridge.
Pickups are VERY subjective. I have a '87 rg550/maple neck/lo pro bridge
with a evo in the bridge and a paf pro in the neck(I'm not using a middle pickup)
For tone options I have the JS1000 mods for the pickups, the
single coil switch and high pass filter switch using the push/pull
vol and tone knobs. That guitar gives me soooo many tone options ...
I like the original RGs as they are brining more $ now days..
You asked about the "S" guitars, well I have a '87 S (maroon) and it's very
light and feels so differant than my other guitars. It sounds really good.
Not a bad choice...but I like the 550 better. You should be able to get
a sweet RG or S with some good aftermarket pick ups with $ left over
