Anyone Play a RG620X

Has anyone played a RG620? How is the piezo sound? Is the guitar basically a 520 w/piezos or is there more than that?

Thanx,
Peter

Honestly it played great, and the mag pups were cool, but the piezo sounded like **** for some reason, whereas the 2020X I played last year sounded really good.

I don't get it.

were you using it through the same amp? It makes a HUGE difference. Through my mesa, the peizo sounds a lot like the single coil sounds from my 2027. through my dad's cheap solid state fender, it's much more pronounced. And through one of the bass models on my j-station with the speaker sim bypassed, it sounds quite real, and worlds different from the mags. Whatever amp you plug it into makes a HUGE difference.

No, I played it through a Line6 Flextone head, and an acoustic SWR amp for the piezo.

I am resurrecting this one because I am thinking about buying one.

OK, same question as before - have you tried one yet.

I played one, but it was two months ago, and I can't remember if it had two output jacks or only one. I know this one comes with the ability to blend both the mag and piezo. Is it a stereo jack or two monos?
