Used RG2620 v New RG870

Hi,

My local guitar shop has a used RG2620 in, and I'm going in to have a play of an RG870 which I am thinking of getting. This is to complement the JEM7v I have.

Any particular thoughts regarding comparing these two? Obviously I'll play them!

* RG870 has the middle single coil pick-up
* RG2620 is Prestige; RG870 is Premium
* RG2620 has DiMarzios; RG870 has Ibanez PUs
* RG2620 has Edge Pro (as per JEM7v); RG870 has Edge Zero 2.

Prestige will generally be a higher quality guitar.

I haven't played an RG2620 but I have played a Premium as well as many other Prestige's and I'd have to say I'd take any Prestige over any Premium.

I think I will need to haggle. They want 799 (GBP) for the RG2620, which seems a bit high considering it is second hand....!

As the boy from Plainfield, Illinois says a Prestige is usually of higher quality. I suspect you was thinking of buying the premium new,then there will ba e little difference in price. But if you want the prestige try to make them come down on the price. Might be easier said then done tho. Good luck.

2620.
The fact that they're asking so much for a used instrument should tell you something. All the same try to haggle them down.
Good luck!
