I managed to play on the RG2550E today in a music store, and comparing the feel of these newer Prestige RG's to the older ones, I noticed quite a drastic difference. I am kinda hoping this was a one-off and I put it down to being just a badly set-up shop guitar, but it's not that it played badly or anything. What I noticed was there was a strange lack of tension (yes, the guitar was tuned to pitch), almost like playing a Gibson scale guitar (24.75"). It seemed to lack the "snap" of older RG's. Does anyone else notice a difference like this or did I get a bad example?
