Advice Welcome On RG350DX vs. RG450DX
Hi guys, new here. Also (relatively) new to playing. Here is my dilemma.
In 2009, I bought a new RG350DX. It comes w/ a Wizard II neck and the Edge 3 Tremolo. I had played it for about 5 months, but then got away from it due to various personal circumstances (I know, REALLY, REALLY STUPID - this time around I'm sticking with it for good).
Anyway, flash-forward to last week. I decided I'd start practicing again, whipped out the ol' axe, and had begun to do just that. I soon found myself on the Ibanez website (not to mention Guitar Center and Musician's Friend) and I see that the 350DX has been replaced by the 450DX. Additionally, the new 450 model has a Wizard III neck, and the Edge-Zero II Trem.
When I was practicing w/ the 350, I did find that I had to tune it at least once a week, and if I was playing around w/ the whammy bar, I had to tune it even more frequently.
Word has it that, the new Edge-Zero II tremolo is a far better tremolo, and I've seen a lot of commentary on the web that says it stays in tune regardless of tremolo or heavy use. I'm not saying no one w/ this rig never has to tune their guitar (that's ludicrous), but that it stays tuned for a munch longer time than the Edge 3 trem system.
My question is, is it worth it to upgrade, or am I just splitting hairs?
Any help, thoughts, or financial donations (just joking) is greatly appreciated.
