I don't understand... RG 3120/22HSOL

Why is there such a big price difference between these 2 guitars? both mahogany ...sure the 3120 has that flamed top but that's not worth like 500 dollars or more right?

The RGT3120 has Dimarzio paf pups, a flame maple top and matching headstock, a bound neck and a clearcoat finish. The RGT220H doesn't !!

that's obvious, i was asking WHY it had such a great price difference....is it worth it? they probably sound more or like the same...

Then obviously you realise that all those things are why it's more expensive, whether it's worth it is up to you. To me it would be. As for the sound, they obviously won't sound the same : different pups and different body woods make a huge difference. To discover which one sounds the best to you, you need to try out both. Obviously.

They sound way different, you have a babies ear. Just buy the cheap one, that's already what you want to do if you even ever had the intention of actually buying that guitar...

I gather you already have the RGT220. And you've changed the pups because you hated the originals. Did you hate the paf pros in the RGT312O too then ?? The point of this thread is what exactly ??
