Dumb question... - RG3120 vs RG520QS

I know the 520 is rather great, I own one. But I passed the chance to buy an RG3120 for only some $250 more.

Would it have been worth the difference?
The frets on the 520 are great, but the ends are a bit rough at places, i have scratches on my fingers and hand because of them.

I just want to know what i missed out on.

3120 hands down for the difference. Your neck is shrinking, doesn't matter how expensive the guitar is, they all shrink over time. You need to file the ends back and then file the corners to keep it properly maintained and 'dulled'.

LOL Told ya long ago, 520's the best bang for the buck, but for the complete package it's the 3120 hands down. Better pups, Prestige neck, etc. like a 520 on steroids
