RGT320Q and RGT3020QM

Hi guys,

A local dealer is just having a sales occasion and the RGT320Q which was previously set at 1850 eur (2650 usd) is now 1600 eur (2300 usd). The guitar looks nice indeed and it has now become cheaper than the RGT3020 which I had found in another shop.

Is there any reason why the RGT3020 would be more expensive ? My point being.. if I show them that I can get an RGT320 for less, do you think they'll lower the price ?
The RGT320 is a newer model..

And what about the guitars themselves ? Looks aside, they're pretty much the same guitar except the RGT3020 has DiMarzio PAF pros and the ultra neck whereas the RGT320Q has a Wizard Prestige and DiMarzio / Ibz pups. The tremolo is the same = Edge Pro.

I have played on the RGT3020 last week and I have played an RGT220Z some weeks ago so I should pretty much know already how each neck feels however my brain and hand muscles forgot about it. But does it really make a big difference ? I mean... a good guitarist can play in any good quality neck which I assume both guitars have.. I know the ultra neck is thicker than the wizard prestige. But is that a bad thing ? I heard some horror stories about wizard prestige necks being so thin that after some years the guitar needs some reinforcements. And between an ultra neck and a wizard neck, I should be able to adapt easily to one another.

Thanks for bearing with me wondering about which guitar all the time

Re: RGT320Q and RGT3020QM

It really all boils down to personal preference especially where neck thickness is concerned. You'll easily adapt to both. Some guys like thicker necks, some thinner. I've never had any problems with wizard necks either. Both are great guitars. Personally I'd go for the RGT3020 because it has the Paf Pros fitted to it a standard. That swings it for me.
