RG520 QS question

Is it all mahogany with a veneer, or is it an actual top?

Re: RG520 QS question

It's a quilted sepele (thus the QS) veneer. Too thin to be considered a "top."

Thanks! After redoing my saber, I kind of want a mahogany rg. Redoing a 520 would be the cheapest route I believe.

I took the clear off my 520 and did a tung oil finish, I love it. But you have to be SUPER careful not to go thru the thin veneer.

I think there were solid color 520's as well.....I'm not sure if they were mahog or not, but they might be worth looking in to.........
