RG20th, RG3120, or RG655m

Hi all -

So I am getting a 2001 RG3120TW in the next week or so and just got a RG20th RFR. How different are the two in terms of the neck?

I am definitely keeping the RG3120 but have the opportunity to return the RG20th and maybe get the RG655M for roughly the same price once i upgrade the pickups on the RG20th to the RG655m. So how different (necks really) are the RG20th versus RG655M? Are either similar to the RG3120?

Thanks

Jeff

Haven't played an RG 20th or a 655 but I'd have to say that if I also had a 3120, I'd keep the 20th if for no reason other than the color.

IMO the 20th also sounds a bit better due to the square heel joint. And RFR is bad ass too. If I didn't have it I would get the RG655 only with a maple board.

Have you tried out the rg655? If so, how does it compare to the rg20th?

I've played comparable models but not the RG655 yet.It seems like the RG3550, which I've actually played, only with an Original Edge.

I've decided to return the RG20th to GC so it's up for grabs there!
I'm going to look around for a RG550 (>97') with bubinga strip...
