Just wanted to share my 6+ months of experience with an indonesian made RG321 (weathered black), made ine 2008 according to the s/n.
Long story short : I have an 77FP, a DNA, a UV777BK, a Les Paul, a strat ... but was looking for a long time into a hardtail workhorse I could use to practice in front of the TV, play without too much consideration for nicks and dings, and drag around on vacation.
I spotted this RG321 in a music-store nearby and the first thing that struck me was the fretwork : very good indeed. Nicely polished, very even, and well rounded, no sharp edges whatsoever. That was the first surprise. Second surprise were the pickups. I personnally dig the INF3 and INF4 on them VERY much ! The five way switch on the HH configuration allows for alot of (to my ears) very cool sounding tones, both clean and distorted. Third nice suprise for me : I actually dig the Wizard II neck very much, because I like them a tad thicker and chunkier than regular Wizards and it is also a tad wider than my FP's neck, which I also like.
So I did pick it up, and obviously had to go through the "routines" big stores never do : changing the strings to 10-46s, properly sretched, adjusting intonation, tightening the contact points (yes, some of them were loose, especially on the tuning pegs, but once tightened it holds with no problem) etc ... but plays like a dream and has hold up for a little more than six months now.
The only thing "negative" I could see up to now is aging of the hardware on the bridge wher my palm rests, but I guess this would be inevitable and doesn't affect playability. I also like the black weathered look of the guitar and surprisingly it doesn't mark or dent easily at all.
I did have Korean guitars, including a JS100, and I must say this indonesian crafted guitar is better in finish, fretwork and overall attention to built quality. For now, I don't even envision changing the pickups, I realy dig the INF3 and INF4 in there with the five way switch.
Ooh, and best part : 220 euros, and surely much cheaper for those of you in the U.S ...
So if you are looking for a cheap hardtail with a VERY good quality to price ratio, give it a try. And kudos to the Indonesian factory for putting out a 200$ guitar of this quality
(PS : obvisouly I am NOT saying or even trying to compare the quality of this guitar to >2k Ibanezes such as my JEMs for example, but keeping in mind it's +/- 220$, the quality/price ratio seems hard to beat for me ...)
