Re: Is the S series Good...
I think a customised S with an RG neck would be the dog's bollocks, but it's a lot of work to do. It would probably involve totaly restructuring the neck joint.
Other than that, the S series, Esp the high end S's Is quite versatile, but it's more of a "For everything else" axe. Truth be told, it sounds better IMO than an RG for playing metal, but it doesn't play better than one for the following reasons.
A, The Body is a lot smaller making it feel different,
B, The trem whilst being fantasic isn't an edge
C, The lack of frets whilst not being important, turns me off.
it should do the job, it's more than capable of doing to he job but it falls just a tad short.
My advice would be to foget the S idea, and go out and buy a mahogany bodied RG, then just not look back, that is unless you plan on expanding your musical tastes within' the nect few years
