RGR421EXFM / RGT42FXQM

Looking at the specs of the two, the RGR421 has the V7 / V8 pups, whereas the more expensive RGT42 has INF1 / INF2ís. I may be wrong, but I thought the Vintage pups were superior to the Infinity ones? I know many people donít like the V7 / V8ís, but surely they would be a better pickup than the InfinityísÖ The RGT42 does have a thru-neck though, which is tempting.

Iíll go and play them both when I get the chance, but I just wanted to hear some peopleís opinions. I want a decent stock setup, because Iím poor and canít afford to be switching pickups around just yet.

RGT far better axe mate (mahogany/neckthru) and personally i found the infinitys to be great pickups and liked them in mahogany way better then v7/v8 pups,though i believe the other guitar is basswood which is probably why it has v7/v8's. No contest as far as im concerned mate,get the RGT!

Cheers mate. They are both mahogany Ė so itís either bolt-on neck and V7 / V8 pups, or a neck-through and Infinities. I think youíre right though, itís probably best to get the one with the better neck. If the Infinities donít suck too hard Iíll jump on it.

I also saw a PRS SE Custom for a good price the other day; I might have to try that one out too. Anyone had any experience with these? Iím a little worried about the neck on it however; it seems a bit too chunky for my tastes.

The PRS SEs are great guitars, especially for the money they cost. Try a few models out, as some have the wide thin neck, while others have a wide thick neck. I love Ibanez necks, and I was surprised to really like the necks on the PRS SEs.
