some RGA questions.
since i've been playing RG's with trems, i've always wanted a full hardtail RG. mostly for the sake of not having to touch the bridge every day and for the "solidity" of a hardtail (to me, guitars with floating trems somehow make the guitar feel lighter or not as robust or something) and for the added sustain and tone.
what i wanna know is, how come hardtail guitars like the RGA for exmaple (or hardtails in general) don't have locking nuts? i mean, if the bridge is incapable of moving, why not just lock the nut for super extra tuning stability? i understand there's the issue of changing tunings and you would have to obviously unlock it, but surely that wouldn't be too much of an issue?
i love the prestige RG necks and the RGA's have the same neck from what i can see. RGA's have an arched top too.
any opinions on how they play and compare to say an RG550 or something? how does the bridge feel compared to an edge or a standard strat-style bridge? there's a hardtail prestige RG, but it's only sold in japan...
