Sound advice, Glen!
I would love to have an RG421 with maple -- say an RG451?

|jemsite||unless you really want the locking trem, the 421 covers your needs with the pickups you want already. there is alot of overlap here, and i'd consider an alternate fixed bridge (non-RG) model... glen|

Help me Decide! RG1550?
I am an Ibanez RG and S junkie -- I admit it is a problem. However, I came across a deal on a brand new RG1550 for under $400.00. They are clearing them out for the new models. I love maple boards, but my only problems are as follows:
Floyd Trems -- I prefer a hard tail and do not use a trem in my playing. Although this might help me branch out into different styles in soloing, I do prefer guitars sans whammy. THings like tuning and sustain . . . yadda, yadda, yadda ....
The V7, V8 pickups -- I realize this will be an instant replace on this guitar. I have an RG421 for which these pickups came stock and went even more quickly. I know that Q1 and Q2's are what I want on this guitar, so looking in the used market and doing a replacement is in the mark.
Other than that, the neck, body, and everything else RG1550 is what I want, and for less than 4 bills, I am having a hard time saying no.
Can anyone convince me either way?
