So, i'm helping a buddy buy his first shred guitar, but he's on a budget. I happened into a pawn shop today and saw this RG:
I can't figure out what this is. I was thinking early RG370DX, but that quite fit. It seems older, at least 10 years or more.
Some of the notable features are:
- -gold hardware
-Made in Korea
-Seymour Duncan Pickups, H/S/H, a Rail in the middle (likely a modification, right?)
-AANJ that beautiful neck joint
-plain 1-pc maple neck, (scarfed headstock, of course.)
-shark tooth inlays
-Edge tremolo (i think anyway- it's definitely an older, Floyd Rose-licensed unit)
The guitar is in good shape aside from being very dusty and having Scotch tape
on it, , and has plenty of life left on its frets, and a good straight neck. They're asking $250, but probably would take a bit less in cash.
My buddy has never had a really
nice, playable guitar, and my initial impression was this was a good deal, with the pickups especially. All it needs is a dusting, and a tremolo arm.
I have to get back to take a look at the Serial #.
What so you guys think? And thanks to everyone
who helps out!
