Rg550 20th or PGM301 ?

Hi all!
Im really torn between these two guitars. Which in your opinion is the "best" of the two?

The RG looks great, but I would be buying used and the cases dont look too good a quality.

The PGM I would buy brand new, but isnt as .... RED!


many thanks

Re: Rg550 20th or PGM301 ?

Well....i haven't played a PGM but the RG20th is an awesome machine

Is it for bedroom use or to be gigged?? If you play a signature at a gig you will be explaining to people that it's Paul Gilberts guitar. With the RG....it's YOUR guitar!! (although it doesn't bother me seeing people play sig's live).

Plus.....the 301 doesn't have the awesome Edge trem

Those RG 20th don't have AANJ.
If you care about it, take this into consideration.

thanks for the replys guys, I went with the PGM in the end

The 20th sure looks great, but I was worried about buying used, and was unsure about the trem (I cant stand them).

I think the PGM will be great for no nonsense practice! It will mainly be for home practice and maybe some small gigs later on

The PGM301 is awesome. I've got 2 now and may end up getting a 3rd.
