Do a forum search if you can, and you will get thousands of threads on them, and they have been discussed many times before! But to give you a quick rundown, they are regarded as one of the best guitars money can buy. They are basically a stripped-down JEM, without all the fancy extras.
And with a change of pickups (DiMarzios) they are just superb axes!

I (and many others) love them to bits. I just cant get enough of them!
For the money they remain (to me) the best axe money can buy in terms of quality and everything else!

I love mine.
I had 4 RG's and then sold off 2 and a strat to buy a Parker Fly, now I want the RG565 back ( which won't happen )
They are great axes and play like butter when set up properly.

I say try one out and grab it if you like it !
