Rg1570 or rg3120

So I'm making my decision today and I'm getting a mirage blue 1570 I love that color so much or a rg3120 in red with the tone zone/paf pro combo and lo pro. Is the playability and build quality that much better on the 3120? I don't mind swapping out the pups on the 1570.

If it was a call I had to make it would be the 3120 for sure. Really great guitars and really good build quality. The Lo Pro Edge is another thing that would def swing it for me towards the 3120.

I think they have different body woods, pretty sure the 3120 has a mahogany body whereas the 1570 would be basswood.

I think the 3120 is a better guitar just because of the trem but that is subjective.

I have a 3120 and can only say good things about it! And it's not heavy for a mahogany guitar! Go for it!

Same trem?

The 3120 is probably better IMHO. Especially the neck.
