NGD RG3xxv Metallic Blue

Moved over from another thread - here's some shots of my new RG3xxv.

Fret ends are decent:

Nut is way high - the intonation suffers in the first few frets. This should be an easy fix at the factory level.

I like the trap door in the truss rod cover.

Neck joint is nice and tight on this one..the was a large gap in my Premium Jem..

...and finally, here's a shot of it with it's dad, my RG565.

The 565 is even more green in person.. more pics at:

Like the 565 better. Deeper blue and of course Edge trem. At least your wiring looks better than the red one in the other thread.

Re: NGD RG3xxv Metallic Blue

Overall, I also like the 565 better..
It's funny, they look the similar at a glance, but to play them they are very different guitars. The frets are taller and the neck is thicker on the 3xxv, obviously the trem has a completely different feel, and the pickups are very different.

If this was an actual reissue, it would be way off mark..but as it's own model, it's cool.

Nice! I may have to get a blue one now to match my CA. Like Metalhead said, at least your wiring is intact. You got the high nut, I got the bad wiring lol.
