What RG to get?
I've been looking around on this site and on the internet to try to figure out what RG to get, but I can't seem to decide which one would be worth getting.
I've been looking to get a new guitar for a while but none have really caught my eye until I saw a guy on Youtube playing an RG550 and I instantly loved the bright, sharp look of those older RG's . I've narrowed my search down to an RG350, the new RG1XXV and the RG1550.
So here's my dilemma, the RG350 is cheaper but I feel that if I'm going to get a new guitar I might as well get something that is above mid level. As for the RG1XXV, I've read good and bad things such as spots in the paint and other minor imperfections. It's also made in Indonesia yet its similar in price to the RG1550 which is MIJ. But since my local guitar shop wants $1240CAD for it I feel like it should be more or less perfect and it seems a lot more expensive than what I've been hearing around the internet. Then there is the RG1550 which is really the guitar I want, but its the most expensive and I don't know if it would be worth getting it since I am no where near a pro at guitar and I don't play on stage or anything.
I play mostly metal and rock, but I want to start learning Blues, but metal is my primary type of music. As for budget, I'm willing to spend a little extra to get something really good, but cheaper the better.
I apologize if there is already a post the same as this one, but I looked around for a while and couldn't find one.
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate the help
