Thanks....that helps!I've never played one but I've played an RG321 which is very similar. If you like arch tops and/or prefer active pickups, the rga32 is the guitar for you. If not, I think you'd be better off with the RG321. If you're looking for a solid, no frills workhorse that is welcome to future mods, you can't go wrong with either of these two choices... even sight unseen. Depending on where you get it, you can return it if it doesn't work out for you.
