Re: nez RGXXV vs Laguna LE924
Just in comparison of specs, I would pick the RG3xxv. It's NOT because I'm an Ibanez player, but rather, because on paper the RG3 is a better built guitar.
The RG3 neck is 3-piece rock maple- The 924 is one piece. The 3-piece will be more stable.
The bridge pickup in the RG3 is a real DiMarzio D-activator- The 924 has a laguna spec GH-5?? Probably made by DiMarzio but similar to the "DiMarzio/IBZ" pickups in quality and tone.
Both have an Air Norton S in the neck position
Both have liscensed trem's, but the EZII in the RG3 is proven to be stable and reliable. No unbiased, educated reviews of the Laguna bridge can be found......... The only review I could find that mentioned the laguna trem had the owner wanting to switch it out for a Schaller OFR.
The RG3 is FAR better looking IMO.
