I've been playing guitar for around 8 years and I'm now looking to invest in a premium instrument. I've played an Ibanez RG for 6 years and have tried alternative Brands but haven't found anything I'm satisfied with.
I'm not an incredibly technical player and I'm looking for a top quality guitar without any features I wouldn't use. This is why the RGA appealed to me. Replace the original pickups with Seymours and it seems like it would be my dream guitar. However, I live in the Midlands (UK) and I can't find anywhere to go and try it out before I buy it. None of the shops in Birmingham have one, neither Hanley.
Firstly, does anyone know a place not too far away from Staffordshire that will stock these guitars. Secondly I would love to hear peoples opinions on the guitar or alternatives that you think may suit my needs.
PS. How different is the neck on an RGA to the Wizard II on an RG??
