S7420 VS RG7620

Ok, the 7620 has a lo-pro 7, the 7420 has a lo trs.
The 7620 has DiMarzios, the 7420 has V7/V8.
How is just an S body worth that much?

S7420 VS RG7620

if you compare prices between any similarly featured RG and S series guitars, the S series is always more expensive then the RG.

RG470(list $699.99) * *S470(list $819.99)
RG520(list $929.99) * *S520(list $999.99)
RG570(list $819.99)
RG7420(list $799.99) * * S7420(list $1299.99)
RG2020(list $1499.99) * S2020(list $1599.99)

the xx520 comparison is off only because the RG520 has a mahogany body, and quilt sapele top, increasing the price as compared to if it had a basswood body. a more fair comparison would be RG570 vs. S520. and pickups may vary in comparison but does not effect price.

prices from musiciansfriend.

I would think a good amount of the price hike is the flame maple top. Other then that their the same...So I dunno,

Remember man hours of labor to get a final sabre cut. More time consuming than an RG body.

So they don't use a laser to cut S bodies, like RGs?
