It plays good Dee real good, suprisingly, it's neck is just comfortable to hell. Have you check out the thread where I put the Edge trem to my Grg?

Re: Just got a used yamaha rgx121sj

I haven't checked it yet Alfie, I'll do that now.

As for Yamaha, I really like their stuff. Back when I was working in a guitar shop I'd often talk someone out of buying a piece of junk and sell them a decent Pacifica instead. I played a lot of those and most of them felt great. Very enjoyable instruments.

Nice score dude. 52 USD is insane!

That's a phenomonal RGX. I love the color! Too bad it doesn't have a Floyd rose, though.

By the way, nice blanket!

Myst My room is a mess I love floyd too, but there's something about this kinda bridge, I've added another 2 springs in it to make it like hardtail, it's much easier to maintain compared to a locking trem though
