I dabble in fingerstyle.

I recorded this on my iphone, a cover of Randy Rhoads' Dee as there was quite a buzz on the net about this guy last week.

i know RGs wouldve suck without their necks but hey... they're not that bad tongue.gif

Generally older RG guitars are either fitted with the Edge, TRS or the Edge pro 2. Newer ones would be the Edge pro and the Edge pro 3(2005). The Edge and the Edge pro are considered tobe the better ones among those listed, mainly because its well constructed and it doesnt break that easily (vai anyone?)
These are highly reliable and most ppl even think that they're on par or even better than the original floyds ( well its pretty biased considering the fact that that group of "ppl" are all RG users)

Most of them are made of Basswood, which is quite light if compared to Mahogony.

Sound: Most ppl think that RGs are "metal" guitars, well personally i think thats just full of crap, the tone does not come from the wood of the guitar yo. Its like saying that strats can only be used for country and blues.

Pros:
Reliable. Very solid and playable.
Cheap? Well the higher end RGs such as the Jcustoms, prestige, Jems, JSs are all available to guitarist at reasonable prices(imo). You money really goes to the construction of the guitar itself and not the brand(not that much smile.gif )
Light. As ive said b4, its light. Wont break your neck thumbup.gif
Neck. Wizard I and II(most of them), thin, fast and smooth.

Cons:
Pickups. the Vs, Powersounds, IBZ Dimarzio. Well... some would disagree with me on this but they suck. Sorry if i offended anyone but dont just take my word for it, go and try it on your own or look up the net. With a neutral body such as basswood, its essential to have decent pickups (Kent Armstrong, Dimarzio, SD, EMGs, Tom andersons etc)
Finish. Man... im not sure if its only me or not, but the RG that i have chips very easily. For someone like me *ehem its not easy to "not" bang into something. I learnt this the hard way... only realise the few chips after a few days, yea pretty sad.

Hopefully this sums things up. Eventhou they're pointy but they're not metal guitars smile.gif

any of you own or tried guitar with an active pu?
physical characteristic is fine but i'm more interested on the sound characteristic of the guitar.
superb explanation on LP but what about SG, Explorer, V?

d tone differs.semi hollow suits jazzy,bluesy,slo rock solo's or play,while solid body,is more versatile 2 me(no need 2 mention how they sound,evrybdy noes laugh.gif)...
dont go 4 semi hollows if u wanna play metal.sounds horrible...

1 more think,dont buy a guitar jz bcz of its cosmetic.tone is more important.

just wondering.. about Wes Borland signature guitar, cv820wb... he takes that guitar on limp bzkit style metal riff quite nice though..
how is this possible? hmm.gif i mean, yea we have mindset of "semi hollow suits jazzy,bluesy,slo rock solo's or play"..

It's all in the amp/pedal. You put in a Dual Rectifier or a Thunderverb to just about anything and it can sound metal. Booster such as tubescreamers are also commonly used to color the sound even more, and adding more gain.

I believe they can be gated. Some love feedbacks (not too much tho) to excite sounds up, like I do.

Our mindset could always be wrong wink.gif For heavy music, guitars often does not make as much difference as to amps, like ariffdude said.

Anyway that's a very cool Yamaha signature model..

Controllable feedback is absolutely delicious! I've only really been able to harness it properly once, at a studio using a Blackstar halfstack and a Sham Kamikaze signature Squier Strat. I dunno what it is about the single coils but they give in to feedback so easily and musically its just gorgeous. Need to figure how to accurately replicate it with humbuckers pulak

Wow.. didn't know it is that exp$$$!! I will still stick to non hollow bodies if i were to play heavier stuff live though, they can somewhat dampen the attack, and feed back could be a prob..

The other Yamaha sig I liked quite a lot is the Troy Van Leeuwn sig like this one:

I've played w JD's Wes Borland's guitar. Definitely a very nicely built guitar. Its not as acoustically loud or 'hollow' as other semi hollow's ive tried. Not your typical semi hollow but very versatile guitar (hey it can take metal).

I just hate to be in one corner. I hate to be put as only a guitar player, or either only as a songwriter, or only as a tap dancer. I like to move around. I play a Gibson style model lead guitar…..
