Holy smokes, what a killer guitar. You don't have to play metal or drop tunings to really enjoy this RG. The finish is gorgeous and the build quality rivals guitars I own that literally cost 4x what this thing did...NO BS. Playability is to die for once I did a few tweaks to get it how I like it... If raising or lowering the bridge, make sure you 1st use the small/skinny Allen wrench on the bridge screws before the main, larger Allen screws... Follow the manual! This thing plays like a Ferrari if a CS Strat is a '68 Camaro big block.... Just precision fine tuned.
