Re: Yamaha RGX A2

It's pretty spectacular from an aesthetic standpoint. It's so clean and modern, I love it. I hope the quality matches the design.

Re: Yamaha RGX A2

I like the looks of A2. I heard bad things about the tuners, though. Is it true that they don't hold the tuning well?

I don't know about emg's
It does however look like the Dimarzio soapbars would fit perfectly. You can get them in Super Distortion and Tone Zone, which is pretty bad *ss in my book.

Re: Yamaha RGX A2

Those would be cool!

I wonder if those Steinberger gearless tuners would fit too?

No trouble with the tuners? I'm seriously considering one. It looks like a modern kitchen appliance! Cool!

Re: Yamaha RGX A2

RGXs are great guitars... as with all Yamaha stuff, guitars or otherwise!

A friend of mine (a drummer nonetheless) owns an RGX-121, a few years old now, and it's a great guitar. I haven't tried the new RGXs since the range was revamped, I would imagine they are still excellent guitars. I find them very similar in terms of both sound and playability to RGs.
