RG3550MZ for a RGT220A

i recently bought a RG3550MZ. AWSOME guitar. Then I started looking more closely at the RGT prestiges as I've always liked neckthrough guitars, and actually prefer them over bolt on necks.

I found the RGT220A CAH, so, I've decided to sell the 3550mz and get the RGT220A. i found a brand new one, and got it for less than i paid for the 3550MZ.

I would like to hear your opinions on my choice...

Well if you prefer neck-thru's better, than i guess its a good choice. I personally would rather have the RGT than the 3550, i think its nicer.

Neck-thru is good!
I would prefer RGT.
But there is no middle single pick-up on the RGT.

What about prices for each guitar?

Re: RG3550MZ for a RGT220A

yeah, sacrificing the single coil sux, as I use it alot.

I paid more for the 3550mz, and will lose some $$ because of this change of mind, but I did get a good deal on the RGT and it's brand new.

just had a $75 setup on the 3550 too down the drain

I REALLY like the RGT220A though! It arrives here Thursday, UPS

So it depends on how much will you lose...

I would play for sometime on 3550 and then think about buying a next one like RGT.

dreaming about S neckthru )))

Good choice with the 220A, awesome looking and playing guitar. Plus you get Edge Pro.

Re: RG3550MZ for a RGT220A

nice guitar. Are the abalone dots real abalone, or some type of abalonoid material? LOL. Hopefully by the time UPS delivers it, I'll have the required amount of posts here to post a pic!!
