Re: RGA Users Unite!

Just got an RGA321F in sapphire blue, love the look, feel and tone very much! My only (very slight) gripe is that the fretboard timber seems porous & dull, I think that that particular slab of rosewood was cut slightly obliquely to the wood grain.

Re: RGA Users Unite!

I have a blue RGA321. Great guitar!!! I replaced the pickups with Bill Lawrence L-90s and that made all the difference! The neck was a bit thicker than my S1625, but I got used to it pretty quickly. I'd post a pic, but I don't have my 20 yet :-)

Re: RGA Users Unite!

... count me in

Impulse buy I found online for $399 w/ no case... bridge is slightly worn and a small nick in the back. Been really looking for an NT then I found ths deal...
Red isn't quite my favorite color but the CDR finish is nifty; it's like metallic violet/red in certain angles and "sparkle" red with bright light. Kinda like the Mirage Red finish with more red "flakes".
Going to get BKP C-Bomb's on this axe eventually... any RGA owners with covered BKP's on them?

Re: RGA Users Unite!

I got a pair of Nailbomb's in red before the new years... and they sound frick'n gnarly on the RGA
I also got Gotoh Magnum tuners as well; now i just need to install a Graphtech nut...

Re: RGA Users Unite!

Currently GASing badly for an RGA8 - it's just a shame they're not available in a few different finishes.

Re: RGA Users Unite!

Ugh! Powder Cosmo! Such an ugly thing to put on such a beautiful guitar! When oh when will Ibanez stop using that crap?!? And on a Prestige no less!!! It wears off in like 5 seconds!
Sweet CDR all the same, reguv760!

Re: RGA Users Unite!

I just have to revive this thread.. RGA's are the best things Ibanez has come up after a long while! I hope they'll bring back the Prestige RGA's with Gibraltar Plus bridges.

I own an RGA321F in Black Onyx. Awesome guitar!
