Re: RG Prestige - mahagoni vs. basswood body
I've got a Mahogany bodied RG321 (which is a hardtail, so that'll increase sustain), and i feel that it is more suited to rhythm work (riffs, etc rather then solo'ing). I also have an RG1550 which is a basswood prestige and i find that it works better for solo'ing but is also good for riffing because it's a versatile sound.
Out of the two it's hard to decide which i prefer. I'm sort of gravitating towards the RG321 at the moment, but that's probably because it's a new guitar and i prefer warmer tones.
