So I played the 25th anniversary RG Premiums the other day...
...and I wouldn't have known it was made in Indonesia, I would have thought it was a Prestige made in Japan. There's nothing wrong with these guitars. I'd say these were 100% on par with any Prestige I've ever played with the benefit of better fretwork too. The inlays were immaculate. These guitars were certainly better than my 2550z.
What's more, they felt really solid and robust. They have a 5 piece neck, but it feels more like a dual skunk stripe neck than the 5 piece Prestige necks. Also felt just a bit chunkier, but that was probably just my own perception vs. reality. Maybe it was the psychological impact of the neon colors (seriously, the colors are REALLY close to the original SK and DY), but I think they capture the feel of the old 777s better than anything other than the originals themselves.
