Rg-1521

I snapped some pics of my RG. I think this hard-tail is as good as any.

The only change is the installation of the dreaded TZ-AN pickup combo.

A prestige RG that has a hardtail. I've never seen that guitar before, but it looks like it would be more affordable than one of the new RGA's.....

Re: Rg-1521

I picked it up for 51,905 yen from Ishibashi (including shipping and a high-end gig bag).

That's around $500.00 USD today.

They have a 1522 (rare) that's pretty beat but do-able and another 1521 that is less than perfect.

As soon as a white one comes up it's mine.

Re: Rg-1521

very nice, how does she compare to the RG421, apples to oranges, or pretty similar?

Re: Rg-1521

IMO the RG-1521 is a "step-up" from the RG-421.

The neck is better. The prestige neck feels nice.

The pickups are direct-mount. It definitely has more sustain. When they both had the same pickups it sounded better.

The output jack is a is a switchcraft long shaft stereo.

Otherwise I'd say they are very similar.

Re: Rg-1521

Man, this guitar would be perfect for me at the moment. Has Ishi still got any stock left?
