made in Japan.

:D

Do you think it's quite versatile for rock/metal ?
Is the LO Pro Edge similar to an Original Floyd Rose or a Schaller Floyd Rose (as I am used to abuse the tremolo bar... ;) )
And how about the price ? I find it quite good for 450 euros!
The only think that makes me think about it is that S1540FM is really beautiful (but RG3120 specs are indeed way better...)!

Lo Pro edge is as good as it gets.. RG's are versatile guitars. If I could find 3120 for 450 euros I'd jump all over it in a heartbeat..

Agreed!! Although the S1540 is a very nice guitar. The RG3120 is the pinnacle of RG guitars, and some will argue that its the best RG-series ever made. myself included. If you pass on it, let us all know here, because someone will surely jump all over it!!!

No, The Lo-Pro is superior in every way. Better body mass, lower profile, better tuning stability (when equipped with locking studs-the 3120 does have them)

Wow!
Your answers make feel that if I don't buy the 3120 right now, I will be a complete idiot!
:p

So, 3120 is considered similar or better even than the Prestige 8570 (my dream Ibanez) ???
