I just got an RG2020x off ebay for 500. Its nice and all, but seriously it doesnt play anywhere CLOSE to what I think it should play like. My friends RG570 plays quite a bit better, and thats not an understatement. Im thinkin somethings wrong here, as a bunch of people on these forums have stated its an incredible guitar. Im taking it to get professionally setup this friday, I really hope it turns out better
. An issue I had was, right under the headstock, on the back of the neck, there was something that at first I thought was a crack in the neck. I took it to 2 guitar techs and they both think its a finish crack or scratch, because its extremely straight and the wood most certainly wouldnt crack like that. The pickups i plan to go with are Tone Zone and Air norton or possible paf pro, with the KGJ wiring.
I also saw someones post about their RG2020x, and how they stripped it and Tung Oiled it. It looked absolutely freaking sweet, and Id really like to do that to my guitar (there are quite a few cracks in the finish, down to the wood. Some of them are quite large). I was wondering, how hard do you think it would be to get down to the wood, tung oil it and such. Id also perhaps like to give it some clearcoat, for a little darker shine (similar to the vintage violin finish)
