So, some of you may already know I own an RG3120 TW (twilight blue). I had issues with the artificial harmonics ringing out, but was fixed with a professional setup (neck was out of alignment).
I bought that 3120 locally off someone on kijiji 10 months ago. That same guy has texted me today saying he bought an RG3120 DR (deep red) off kijiji in a city nearby while he was visiting. He is offering to trade it for my RG3570Z CA (candy apple).
My 3570z is mint other than a 1mm scratch (I bought it locally for $1000 CAD). He says the 3120 has some minor chips but neck and everything else is "very good condition". Also says it's all original, with case, 2001 model. I don't have pictures yet. I'll post them once he sends me them.
Considering I spent $1000 CAD on the 3570z, I'll probably be losing some money in the trade since the 3120, although an amazing axe, doesn't go for that much anymore.
-I guess it comes down to basswood vs. mahogany/flame maple
-Lo Pro Edge vs Edge Zero
-Super wizard prestige (58mm) vs. wizard (or super wizard?) (56mm)
-Resale value vs. guitar value?/quality? - resale would be more on the 3570z, but on the other hand, everyone [here] knows how great of an axe the 3120s are!
-2001 vs. 2009 guitar
I have to see the pictures first of course, but what do you guys think?
Note: My 3570z is my only basswood body RG with AANJ (not that it particularly means anything)
Here's my RG3570z:
