rg 350dx a good guitar?

Theres a rg 350dx on my local cl for 300 with hardshell case.
I know that is the low end rg. but how would it fare with a pickup upgrade? like say a jb/jazz combo?


i also play an s470qs and a bc rich jr it-v

looking for a guitar to use in eb tuning with my band, to swap back and forth with the v.

(*I leave the s in standard)


optionally/if i dont buy something right away, i am waiting on a s420 in blackberry sunburst to show up at the lgs.

I owned a 350DX for about...8 days. Took it back and got something else. The pups are not that great. The V series is heads and tails better than the INF4. But again that is pretty subjective. Definitely play one before you buy.

Re: rg 350dx a good guitar?

i have a white 350DX. great axe. it's my main one

i have an EVO in the bridge and a Super Distortion S in the middle single coil slot. stock pup in the neck which I never use.

it's an ace guitar, and although it's not quite as refined as the higher models, if you're gonna replace the pups and if you don't do lots of whammy bar action then it's fine. if you're gonna do a lot of bar action, it may well still be ok, but you need it setup well, and also take into account that you may need to spend money relacing the bridge in a few years if you treat it hard.
