August Burns Red(RGA 121 Prestige)

I am trying to find a RGA 121 Prestige like the one the lead guitarist of August Burns Red uses but I cannot find one. Not even on the site, any ideas

It is most likely an LACS guitar.

Are you talking about the green RGA? Yes, definitely an LA Custom Shop guitar.

The green is indeed custom with green paint, Gibraltar bridge and EMG 81-85 in white

Yes that one, but at one point he played an all natural looking one/ well tan looking one. and I don't care so much if it's that color but I want tat model, with the pickups he uses? How would I go about getting it?

Find an RGA121 in a natural finish on ebay or used somewhere. They don't make them anymore.
Put EMGs in.
Paint if desired.

The other option is to buy a current RGA which are all now active pickup models and made in Indonesia. They're not as good as an made in Japan RGA though.

Good luck!

Re: August Burns Red(RGA 121 Prestige)

The RGA72QME is real close to this one, Fixed gibraltar, EMG 81 / 85 pickup and mahogany body, you'd just have to tune it to Drop C and you'll have about the same instrument

The only thing that would differ is that a Prestige (Like the RGA121) has a slimmer neck.

The other option would be to get an RGA121 and change the pickup for EMG81/85
