Re: RG that's not Basswood?
I tried that RG 470 MH on local shop and was really exited about it beforehand.
But after playing it, I was really disappointed. Now I understand why RG's in genera are not made of mahogany. See, mahogany works great on low weight Ibanez S bodies with great resonance...but in RG it felt like dead wood. Same goes to RGA 32 MOL. Resonance on those was really bad. Could also be that indonesian factories use lowest quality mahogany.
It can also be that mahogany doesnt sound so good in body shape and weight of RG. So test before buy!
