Stopped by GC after work with NO intention of buying anything...just to snoop around. *And there it was, the same RGT3120DB that I played at the guitar show a couple weeks ago. *Next thing I know I'm walking out with it (Honey, guess what??). *Feel like a spoiled kid at Christmas. *Have a gander...
Really impressed...just as everyone else has been. *Lovely and classy. *Same neck profile as my "TX Prestige" (feels nice, but I'm tempted to take 0000 steel wool to it from the volute to the fade). **The guitar is bright and punchy--not sure if that's the extra maple, neck through contruction, the pups, or all of the above. *I generally have not liked the PAF-Pro in the neck, but it's not too bad in the bridge, might try AN/TZ. *
Wish list: OK, this is silly with such a nice guitar, but here goes:
- Flamed maple binding on the neck
- unstained scraped binding on body
- ebony fretboard
- maybe a 42mm nut (jury is deliberating on this one)
- but then again, Ishibashi has a JC like this in VV
Now to figure out what has to go in order to be able to keep this!
