Re: RG 4xx MIJ once again?
I'm sorry unable to take picture, I was arriving too early, the expo just opened, and the people was busy moving things around.
So, regarding the RG 4XX MIJ , and yes it is RG 450, with ingredients :
TRS kind- tremolo
V6 series pickups
Wizard II kind neck.
I talked to the salesman, it's available in 3 options : black ( the one I saw at the expo), red, and blue.
It has TEAM J CRAFT thing on the back of the headstock, and yes..it was made in Japan, with serial number indicated 2009 production.
I would say, based on the ingredients, it's more like MIJ RG 350 from the past, instead of RG 450.
The price is around USD 580,nett price.
conclusion : the new RG 450 is downgrade version of previous RG 450. For that kind of money, I will recommend it against any MII RG 4XX/ 3XX.
