Re: Need an opinion: Rv470
The RV470 is a pretty nice guitar. It has the Viper neck profile, which has a great "vintage" feel to it - it's definitely different from a Wizard, so keep that in mind if you like the Wizrd profile necks. The stock pickups are okay - I believe the are Ibaenz V6s or something like that. Mine ended up with a Duncan Screamin' Demon in the bridge and a Duncan Jazz in the neck, and they sound very nice. The vintage style Gotoh trem is pretty good, too. If memory serves me correctly without going down and looking at it - I'm pretty sure it's a photo-flame job on the top, not real maple.
