I have an opportunity to buy one or the other of these here locally, and both are at what I believe to be decent prices - $500 for the RGA121 (it's the plain wood finish), and $1200 for the RGD. I need/want to pickup something to tide me over while I impatiently wait for my Solar 6 to get finished. This would be my first Ibanez too.
So, aside from the obvious differences like scale length and of course price, which would you go for? What might be a better value in your mind? Again, never owned an Ibanez before so seeking input from those here who have.
P.S. for what it's worth, I never use trem, so that's meaningless to me in terms of added value.
