Just got myself the RG870QMZ HVV (Premium)

Hope I post this at the right place (if not, feel free to move it).

I had sort of decided for myself to not get anymore RG guitars, I have enough and basically only play the FR model. But I feel so deeply in love with this new Premium model that I just couldn't walk away from it.

I shot some fast photos of it directly when I came home with it.
I will take better ones later when I change the pickups and put proper stings on it.

It is a pretty sexy looking guitar, I think.
It feels great, plays great and looks great, what more could a man ask for?
I like the new softcase too.

Thanks!

Yes, it comes in those soft hard cases (or hard soft cases).
At least over here in Europe.
It looks and feels like it can take a bit of a beating.

And you get those Ibanez little tool things in there too.


The Premium models are a bit different in USA, different pickups and H-H instead of H-S-H, so maybe they have different cases/bags too?

Same here, when I first saw one, a black, did I only think "looks nice, but no GAS".
But then I saw all the colors over here and just feel in love with this one.

A cool bonus is that they seem to be very even i quality.
I tried a bunch of them and they all feel and sounded very similar, that is very unusual on cheep guitars.

yeah, your right, it does.
Sort of pink girly lava :-)

Most of the others I have seen are more violet than this one.
This is almost pink.

Awesome pictures, as usual.

How does it play? You are a pro player, so your words carry a lot of weight when it comes to these models being great or not.

I saw Alaska's video and he had a gigbag-like soft case. Guess USA and Europe are different then. I think the pickups are different too.

Thanks, man!
How are you these days?

After just a little test drive (maybe 2 hours and only unplugged) does it feel and play great, I can't really tell any real difference between this and my Prestige or J-Custom so far.
The unplugged tone are really good too, noting that indicates price there either.
Weight are good, and for me that is really important, in my opinion do heavy guitars most of the time sound bad.

But it is to early to really say anything with any sort of proper "real use" experience behind it. I really believe that you have to really use a guitar for a long time to have anything to really lean an opinion on (for it to be worth anything, I mean).
Most guitars, unless total garbage, feel good when their new these days.
I have quiet a lot of gigs coming up now so I will bring it on the road and talk more about it after that (the pickups will be changed, but noting ells).

I try to rest as much a possible now (have a broken shoulder) so I don't really play much unless on stage now. So I wont be playing it now before Friday.

Take care, man!
