Question HELP! Looking for differences

Hey everyone! I'm kinda confused about two guitars, as they seem to be the same, except for the pickups.
I'm talking about the RG3520Z and the RG3620Z. What are the differences between those two?

Re: HELP! Looking for differences

The RG3620Z is just considered an "upgrade" on the RG3520Z, the two main differences being that the 3620 has Dimarzio Air Norton and Tone Zone pups and it has a Super Wizard neck as opposed to just a Wizard neck. Also, the 3520 is a 2007/08 model, whereas the 3620 is a brand new 2009 model unveiled at NAMM about two months ago.

Thanks a lot, but there's something still bothering me, I've seen the specs for both necks, and it seems that it only differs in 1mm in two sections. It sounds weird that it is much more expensive than the 3620, the pickups by themselves do not justify the price, and honestly, neither does the new neck, nor the abalone inlay dots... but that's just me :P

Well all the prices went up this year so that might be why + the amazing pickups. I think yen is gaining more power

Well, I managed to find a RG3520Z on a store! I'm replacing the pickups to match the 3620Z. I'm really psyched about this!

I'll post pics as soon as I get my hands on it!
