The RGA42FM is a hardtail 6-string electric built around a Mahogany body with stunning Flamed Maple top. Its contoured top not only looks sleek—it creates a softer, more comfortable edge where the player’s right forearm rests. Other features include a fast, thin, Wizard III Maple neck and Rosewood fretboard with jumbo frets for maximum left hand performance. This neck and fretboard combination provides a smooth, inviting playing surface and contributes to the RGA42FM’s warm, well-defined tonality. Proprietary Quantum pickups offer an entire palette of thick, distorted tone textures that never sacrifice high-end articulation. A simple, yet solid fixed bridge provides stable, dependable tuning and accurate intonation. Case not included.

Things You Will Get:


Versitile Sound and Great Value


I'm primarily a bass player and have only owned an acoustic guitar for the past few years, but I wanted to get back into playing a bit of electric. I compared this against a wide range of other guitars and chose it mostly because of the simplicity and versatility of the electronics. It has a 5-way selector switch that drastically changes the tone from an almost acoustic-sounding bassy tone to a punk-friendly crunchy/squawky sound and everything in between. This makes it perfect to dial in a good tone for any song. The guitar is very lightweight. It has sort of a rough "semi-finished" finish - I would prefer a glossier body that stands up better to close visual inspection, but it looks good from a distance and I love the sound and the price tag.



Beautiful guitar at a good price


Amazing guitar Feels nice in the hand Very balanced and clean sounding



My favorite guitar so far


Freaking love the look and feel of this guitar. Also the neck is great for me since I have small hands



Great playing & sounding guitar for the $$$


I am rating this guitar as a 4.5 star considering the playability, price and the quality. Even though this is not one of the older MIJ RG models that I am used to, after adjusting the action the Wizard3 neck feels excellent and I am able to execute flawlessly. This guitar can be used for a variety of different music sounds and styles. The humbuckers and 5 way switch are not what you would get on a premium grade instrument but can be easily changed. I made this purchase because I wanted the Wizard3 neck without a Floyd Rose tremolo.



Great purchase!


The guitar is beautifully made, has a clean sound, and is comfortable to use with smaller hands. Having a nice guitar makes learning more fun and exciting.



Great guitar for the price


Awesome sounding guitar!!
