    I just got 2 new guitars. An RGD7320Z witch I will file the frets a bit better on and replace the pups at a latter stage. Might add a flake the the paint as I m not a huge fan of the flat black. And an RGR465MSOB. This is the guitar the thread is about. The RGD has an Edge Zero 2 witch I kind...

    Ok, well I have been anchoring my palm on the bridge of the guitar for about a year now. I have been informed that it is bad practice and that my whole hand should not touch the guitar. I have been playing scales for about 2 hours trying to pick over the neck pickup and not touching the bridge...
