hi guys, i was hoping for a bit of advice on a couple of RG's.
its been quite a while since ive had one so i thought id get a decent one to back my suhr up.
at the moment i have my eye on a JEM70v, and a RG2820CT.
pros and cons for me:
pros - looks pretty awesome, ideal pickups and hardware config for gigging, a little cheaper
cons - questionable quality, likely spending money on an expensive set up
pros - beautiful guitar, preferable 3 way toggle for personal playing, rare, prestige build quality, preferable pickup/wiring config for personal playing
cons - a little more expensive, not ideal for me for gigging
right off the bat i would have said the prestige is the way to go, especially since the quality of the jem70v's seem to be a bit hit and miss. however from what ive read, as long as you get them set up properly theyre a really good guitar. could they be considered as good as the RG2820CT prestige once set up properly?
the main problem i have with choosing an rg in general is that really speaking i need a H-S-H config in order the most diversity for gigging. i also need an edge/edge pro etc.. because i will want to fit a tremol-no too. this is one of the reasons the jem70v is one of my options and not any other new ibanez.
i suppose the main reasons im considering the RG2820CT is because its a limted run and its very pretty piece. (i also prefer 3 way toggles even though that config isnt particularly good for the stuff the band plays).
i have looked at other prestige RG's, but most are either not really to my taste, or dont have the preferred hardware.
any opinions on the jem etc... would be awesome
