Re: rg320 or rg470?

the yellow 470 is upgraded to a 570 at least. edge bridge, x2n & tone zone, black mirror pickguard, and new wizard neck with sharktooth inlays. its a beast. i love it (but i am a novice) its no jem, but i think its sweet. thanks

Go with which ever one sounds better. We cannot hear the guitar, you can. Go with your ear.

the 470 is hsh but it is thinner than the 320 and has about 20sec less sustain. the 320 is a black maple top. it is hh though, but i never use the single coil on the 470. they both look great. i switch everything i liked of the 320 to the 470 because i was told the 470 was made of better wood. i think the 320 sound the same, but with more sustain. should u just go back to the 320? or will the wood not age as well as the 470???

rg320 or rg470?

hi i have a 94 rg470 and a 04 rg320dx qm. i bought the 320 for replacment bridge and neck. (newer wizard2 shacktooth inlays, and upgraded from lo trs to edge 2) i love em both, but i think the 470 sounds better. I got a evo in the 470 but im switching it out for a x2n. my question is which one is better to play. 320 body or the 470 body?
