Re: What is so cool about the RG321?
[QUOTE=Brando Clean;736573] I will not knock the big 2. They are ok for what they are but overpriced for sure.
That's largely due to the fact that they are made, packed, shipped, promoted and sold by people paid in the same dollars you are! And besides, last time I looked, the MSRP of a Les Paul Standard was pretty much exactly what a JEM VWH was advertised at. Don't come to the conclusion too quickly that US guitars are overpriced - the American Standard Strat is a very fine guitar for what you can buy it for, brand new, right now in a shop near you.
I think one of the things that people like about the RG 321 is that it is cheap enough that you are not going to balk at sanding off the finish, drilling holes in it, changing pickups etc to make it what you want it to be, and, yes, it is a very fine guitar indeed for not a lot of bucks.
