Rg2820ctvv Vs. Rg3120tw

Hi,

i'm looking into buying one of either of these guitars, or if they both fall above my price range (750) second hand for both of them obviously, lol.

theres a 2820VV in the classifieds for about 750 at the moment, and the 3120 is something ive got going at the moment. will see about that one.

just for peoples opinions, they are both in awesome condition and come with cases, which would be the better guitar if they were both the same price?

Cheers

Sidewinder.

Heyup

I know we've been over this on msn but thought i'd post a bit.

If you're prepared to save up the extra to replace the pickups of the 2820 for something better than the Dimazrio/Ibz pups then get the 2820. The only differences between the 2 are the pickups and the vine, it's easier to replace the pickups and have the vine rather than get the 3120 which has superior pickups and not have the vine

I think the DiMazrio/Ibz pickups are good anyway, there's no reason why you wouldn't be perfectly happy with those until you save up the extra to get something a little bit better

I havent gotten a chance to use these just yet but I really loved the Ibanez/duncan pickups so I cant see why the new dimarzios would be any different. I liked the old dimarzio ibanez pickups quite a bit personally.

Not to forget that they have different neck profiles.

Also the 3120 has a nice flamed maple top which the 2820 doesn't.

The 2820 has an Ultra neck, for dimensions check the Jemsite.

Great news! looks awesome from those pics...It looks very legit to me, starting at a high price usually results in very few bids, if any. I would have gone for it myself if I had the money.

If I were you I would just leave it, besides, it gives it some character.

Re: Rg2820ctvv Vs. Rg3120tw

hehe, true.
i can always rejoice over the story of the Gibson Vs. Ibanez argument that resulted in that fine ding......

..... if only it was my story

can i ask a question on price for this guitar....

the RRP of an RG 2550e is 679
i bought this one for 600

how much of a bargain did i get

Depends on how deep the dent is. If it's only a BIG scratch, you can fill it with some super glue or lacquer (super glue is faster). If it's a dent that almost chipped off, just chip it off carefully (I usually yank it out with an exacto blade) and drop fill it with some lacquer. If it's actually compressed the wood you can steam it out, but from the looks of it you may just need to rip the dent and drop fill it.
