There's no way to predict what your guitar's grain is going to be like until you've stripped the finish. Basswood is very inconsistent that way. Some pieces might have really nice grain on them, others won't.
Also, on guitars with solid finishes, the bodies can be made from as many as five pieces of wood laminated together. On transparent finishes, midrange guitars are usually two or three pieces.
That's why stripping a guitar with a solid finish with the intent of putting a transparent finish is such a gamble. You may not like what you find under the paint. But give it a shot if your RG needs refinishing anyway. If you don't like what you see, just paint it over with a new solid colour, or laminate a nice veneer over it. Just make sure you don't scorch it too badly in the process of removing the paint or experimenting with your burning technique. (Hint: Practice on scrap first!)
