RGT3120 TV - My Latest Acqusition! - I've gone Flamed Maple

Just received my RGT3120 TV from Rich and it truly is an amazing guitar! The neck thru reminds me of my American Master I used to have - can't believe I sold that guitar! Anyway, I will be changing the pickups to an Air Norton and a Tone Zone (both creme/black) - should look sweet with the trans violet. Hey Rich, you were right it is hard to see any flame since that purple color is so dark! *This is my fourth maple top guitar!! I have a JPM90, USRG30 BT, UCEWFM-NT and my only non maple top guitar is a Jem 7VWH. I'm obsessed with flamed, quilted or figured maple tops! I love the way they sound and look. Anybody else have the same obsession? Also, I'm in desperate need of an RBM2 - sellers please contact me!

I've been obsessed with maple tops ever since I got my RG3120-TW. My goal has been to have a transparent-finished maple-topped guitar in every color of the rainbow. Here's where I am now:

red: RG3120-DR (used to have an RG1200-TR, too)
orange: RG1220-QMTO
yellow-ish: RG1680x-TA (used to have an RG570-CTAM, too)
green: RG1880-BGS
blue: RG3120-TW (and almost the JPM90-HAM)
purple: RGT3120-TV

Then there's the ones that don't really fit into the rainbow: a natural MA1FM, a trans black Les Paul DC, and the RG-ART, which is a little bit of every color.

What can I say... I love maple tops!

I played the RGT this past weekend, and it was unbelievable!! I am very impressed with the tone and quality of the guitar. I saw both the Purple and the brown. Beautiful.

The only thing that I was kinda put off by was the neck binding. It looked kinda cheap. That's just a minor nit-pick, nothing I'd turn down guitar over.

I'd say it's just a string short of perfection.
