Tuning stability and diffs on fixed bridge on RGR321EX and MTM2..?
I have been looking to maybe get a fixed bridge 6 stringer..
I like the reversed headstock (like i used to have on my pgm30 i had sold long ago..), so that rgr321ex looks promising..plain and simple..but still, very nice..i lik ethe binding..
PUs are mediocrity..but, they are replacable anyway..(btw, since they are EMG lic PUs, are they easily replaceble with standard passive pus, like Dimarzio..?)
The other guitar which is similar is MTM2..everything pretty much the same, except mahagony body and edge III FX bridge..
What i would like to know is how big difference is between these 2 bridges..?
I know that EDGE III FX is lockable..but, beside more precise tuning, and probably keeping better in tune, since having a locking nut, how is it considering the tone..? Do the strings go through the body, or just to the tailpiece, like on regular floyd equipped guitar..? So, how does it influences to the sustain..?
And, considering RGR321ex, what are the opinions and experiences about its tuning stability..? It is simpler to use, since there is no need of allen wrenching, cutting string ball ends and stuff, which i am sick and tired from having only floyd equipped guitars.. i like the FX bridge more considering th elooks, but thats really not that important, of course..
So, rgr321ex is about 350euros, and mtm1 about 500e...
I dont care much for the wood difference, pus are the same quallity..considering the looks, very equal..so, what matters is the tuning stability..which depends on tuning pegs and bridge quallity..
So, i am waiting for some opinions..!
