Re: Deciding between a RG3120 and RGT3120? Tone questions?
rg2020x has a prestige ultra neck. i have an rg2120xtb from 02 and its the last year of the prestige ultra and lo-pro double edge. i also own both guitars your looking into...the same colors. the rgt is by far the best guitar i own, and i own like 30+ electrics. i have all my mahogany rg's with air norton/tone zones. so both of those models that i have are near identical. the rgt3120 has almost no string tension and the lo-pro is super sexy. flutters when you look at it. the violet chrome is beautiful as well. i put q-parts abalone chrome knobs on mine. the rg3120dr i have is a great guitar. it was my main gigging guitar for one of my bands. plays great...now. it took a long time for the truss rod to settle in with that neck. weirdest thing, i would set it up...it would play ok. 3 months later, the tension would be tougher, but the strings were at the same place over the fretboard. after nearly a year of setups, it kills. not nearly as good of a guitar as the rgt, though. the rgt just sounds more complete over the tonal spectrum. big and full. the rg3120 sounds great, too, but like its overcompensating. the bottom line is that the rgt was $500 more than the rg when new, so if you can score one for the same price, do it. if not, get me the info...i'll buy whatever one you don't get.
