RG3XXV worth it?

i really like the look of it, and the combination of reverse headstock, maple fretboard, and stock dimarzio pickups only makes it better.
i've searched the forum and i have mixed feelings from what i've read, some say that after fixing mostly fret ends issues they are great guitars, others say they dont feel quality in the hands.
my only experience with rg's is the korean RG370DX i had, which was ok but nothing to brag about, and a recent purchase of a 95 MIJ RG505 which i LOVE.
also i remember trying in the store one of the newer 370's from indonesia and it was a lot worse than mine, or rather mine was a lot better.
from your experience how will the RG3xxv compare?
i've seen that ibanez say that although it's made in indonesia, people from the japanese j craft team went there to make it better, don't know if its true but smells like BS.

I would seriously consider checking out that widely popular auction site, I had a 350ex for years and the build quality and trem was never on par with what you can find on there for the same price and I wish I would've known that. Hell check out the sale section here you might even find a member selling something you would like.

Re: RG3XXV worth it?

I just did a wrap on my RG3XXV.Also replaced the red inlays with black ones and got rid of the tone knob and had a kill switch installed.This guitar compares very much to my 1991 RG565 which is my main guitar.
