Re: RGt320q - is this a insanely good deal?
On a previous occasion I had played this guitar at another music and fell in love with it. I love the prestige line in general and I always wanted a mahagony prestige guitar, and I love nice quilt or flame tops. Initially I had decided on a 3120 but problem is the only ones I can find are the blue ones which is not my cup of tea. I prefer a brown, natural or red one. Problem is they aren't easy to come buy.
Neck-through is not my ideal choice but I do think this guitar is great overall and would be a great addition to my army of guitars. The only issue, as I see it, is that is this deal so good that i would be a fool to pass on it? As far as wanting it yes I want it, but is the deal good enough now to justify takie the fiancial hit? You never see this guitar on **** and even if you did it would prolly sell more then this one at the store, and the one at the store i know what im getting (unlike that auction site). So I think finding this guitar in this condition at this time (when its a current production model not some older discontinued item). I am trying to be very methodical and not impulsive.
And on a side note, from your post it sounds like neck-through = brighter sound? I thought neck-throughs made guitars sound fatter and more sustain. Mahagony is a warm wood so with that in mind how much brightness can be added by a neckthrough in this case? I used to have a gibson SG with a seymour duncan duncan distortion and it sounded real fat and chuggy not at all bright. I would most likely go with a duncan distortion on this badboy as well.
Thanks for your input.
