New to me RGX 421DM NGD!!!!

Unread post by Sunburst »

Got my '94 Violin Burst RGX421DM in. Had to be cleaned, polished, the FR needed a setup and the saddle pieces were in the wrong order. Once all the issues were addressed I plugged'er into my interface, loaded up Scuffham, and dialed in a smooth and hot fusiony sound with little effort. I'll try to upload a video I have later. I have a collection of about 15 guitars. They range from a $3k The Heritage H157 Custom to a, an '84 Gibson Designer V, a Parker Nitefly, some Hamers, and all the way down to this $290 Yamaha RGX from '94. This Yammy is one of the better ones. That's not a joke or exaggeration. It's not necessarily better than them all, but for the price point, ease of play, and joy to play, it checks all the boxes. I've had it for at least 2 weeks now and it is still the one I go to most often.

Here is the video I mentioned. I just recorded it by putting my phone in between my headphone monitors and played to a backing track. Couldn't really hear much of what I was doing or what I was playing to as I was not wearing the headphones and I have a couple of flubbed notes :doh: . No biggie. Just to get an idea of some tone as it sounds through headphones recorded into a phone mic. Dont expect too much. Great guitar though, completely stock.

Some pics. The action on this guitar is nice and low. Pretty speedy neck.
