I am looking to add a guitar to play some music that is in C# but do not want to use my Ibanez RG550 or RG570. I am considering the Ibanez RG421 hardtail as it has received positive reviews and sells for $300. I have found a used RG350 for about $250 and was considering adding a Tremolo-No for another $50. The RG350M would give me locks at the nut which I am assuming will keep the guitar in tune better and will allow for fine tuning at the Edge III tremolo.
What are your thoughts?
They're both going to be extremely close quality wise and will handle detuning the same. If anything, the RG421 will be the better guitar because it doesn't feature the abomination that is the Edge III.
