I've owned two Ibbys in the past and I didn't really connect with either of them. But I'm willing to give Ibanez another try, mostly because I like the RG body shape. I'm not the biggest fan of bolt-on construction or reed thin necks with really flat fretboards, but I'm willing to keep an open mind.
I was considering visiting some local shops and trying out some RGAs. In particular I'm interested in the new RGA42 (the one with the EMGs, not the older model with the LoZ3s), and I'm leaning towards the fixed-bridge version. Any thoughts or advice to pass along?
try it before you buy it or have a return policy. Ibanez makes some great low end guitars but they let some duds go thru as well.
