Premium and NGD

So here's the deal I learned to play on an rg and currently have a prestige 2570vsl in my guitars. Already having 12+ guitars, I heard that these premiums were coming out (from some of my students). I saw some pictures when they were released and thought that's one nice looking guitar. I know they are less money then most prestige but not by a ton so I figured they'd be really good. I liked the hot pink and yellow finish and thought sweet I'll buy one. As I went to 3 different stores and tried 6 or 7 of the 25 anniversary ones I realised they just dont play like the prestiges or the older 550 I learned on. They feel cheap in terms of the fretboard IMHO. Anyways that was my experience. Just didn't like them in comparison with the prestige guitars. But I couldn't come home empty handed so I bought a prestige 1550m in poisoned pumpkin and its awesome! Back to playing I go.

What are your experience with premiums?

Re: Premium and NGD

LOL! My current Prestige is a 1550M Poison Pumpkin. Although I consider it dangerous to walk into a GC with my CC I went and had a look at the 25th Anniversaries. They had both colors but I only played the FPK one. Wow is it bright on the eyes! Had to put my sunglasses on. : p It was nice but my 1550 is certainly better, so I totally agree with your decision. I'm considering an upgrade from my only Ibanez so I'm gonna wait and see what the other 6 (?) 25th RG's are gonna be. Shouldn't the next two be out soon?!
