RG5EX1 worth buying?
As the title says, I'm wondering if the RG5EX1 is worth getting. I'm left handed, and Ibanez doesn't have a ton of lefties available.
A few years ago (well, maybe around 6), I used to have an RG1570L that I liked. I sold it when I went through a phase of wanting just hardtails, and I kinda regret it - especially looking at the prices now.
So, my main concern is the hardware on the RG5EX1. I can't find much info on it (it appears to only be available through GC/MF) as far as reviews go. Plus, I wouldn't trust any reviews on Harmony Central, as they are owned by MF. How reliable is the Edge III? And how about the fretboard and fretwork? I'm not too worried about pickups, since I change out pickups on pretty much every guitar I get.
Should I just save up and get an RG1550ML? I haven't used a tremolo in years, and don't think this will end up being my main guitar, but I do run into songs that need it occasionally.
