Need advice with an '91 RBM1

Hey Guys,

I'm new here but another forum I post on referred me to this site.

Anywho....

I have a blue 1991 RBM1 thats in OK shape. I love the guitar, but I've never liked the cutaway and not a huge fan of the color. I actualy bought a RG body from **** hoping I could just swap out the body and use the RBM1 neck, but it didn't work without modification which I don't think I want to do.

I guess my question is, is this guitar worth keeping together? I would much more prefer an RG body than the RBM. But I do have to admit the guitar does sound pretty good.

What do you guys think?

Thanks,
JDM

the RBM has a particular neck
my opinion is : keep it in its shape, have another axe if you want, then compare !

You can sell the RBM for a nice amount and pick up a nice MIJ RG replacement anywhere (and maybe have some $ left over).

Or throw it up for trade on the classifieds- I'm sure you can find someone who'd throw a nice RG your way for a RBM, even if it is a little "rough around the edges."

Yes that is weird- I just moved here last year from Rochester, NY. A bit of a culture shock, but I like it very much so far!

You know that if you really like the RBM neck, which is a good bit thicker than you'll get on most RGs - the Japanese ones anyway - then it will work with an S Series body. It didn't work with the RG because they are different lengths.
