New here!

Hey I'm new here.

Ive got a neck-thru RG(rgt42 I think) this worth putting money into?
It seems like it could smoke most usa made jacksons e.c.t. if it was upgraded...ya know,new pickups,bridge,lsr tuners and some kind of killer paintjob.

Personally I don't think it's worth putting money into because it is MIK and it has a crappy trem, but I have played one before and it's a nice guitar!

Welcome! I've enjoyed it here - lots of useful info.
Regarding your guitar, well it's obviously up to you, but some of my favorite guitars in the past were guitars that were not super expensive to begin with, but that I modded to my liking. I think that it just adds a level of "ownership" to a guitar that you already enjoy. And that's the ultimate thing really - do you enjoy the guitar, and if so, are there upgrades that would increase your level of satisfaction? You'll never get your money back out of it, but you may get years of playing satisfaction!
Just my opinion of course.......
