Decisions...decisions. Which of these two is the better one to get?


Each would be upgraded. I guess the reason I am uncertain is the cheaper one is mahogany and the other is basswood.

I had a feeling the RGR580 was going to have the "edge". Now, here is the second part to my question. There is a J Custom model, the RG5870 if I remember correctly, that has a honduras mahogany body with a flame maple top, air norton in neck and tone zone in bridge and Lo-Pro Edge. I love the natural finish version. Its about $1500. The RGR580 is $600. I estimate with the upgrades of a Steve Special in the bridge and something else, not sure yet, in the neck, a price of about $850 - 900.

Which would you choose...considering costs?
