Re: J Custom RG8420FE BX pictures
Congratulations! Thanks for posting the pics. Seriously considering one of these myself. Usually prefer offset dots to vines, but on this guitar, it looks great as everything else is nicely understated. Potentially my ultimate 6 string J-custom.
I'm torn between this and the alder RG8320. I'd be swapping the EMG81 bridge pickup to an EMG85, which I know suits alder very well (that's the combo on my Jackson and it rocks). I'm just worried the EMG85 might be too muddy in mahogany and lose its charm. I'd be hoping an RG8420 with bridge EMG85 would have the warmth of my mahogany guitars that my alder Jackson lacks, but still be tight, aggressive and responsive to palm muting in drop C tuning. Everyone's opinions are useful, but at the end of the day I guess there's only one way I'm going to find out. GAS attack imminent :-)
