I used to economy pick, but has since found that alternate picking is more conducive to rhythmic tightness.

Top-mounted Floyd without angled neck?

I kinda figured that the action would be high, but just how high would it be? Currently, I can play 2.5-3.0mm at last fret no problem. Would I have problems with this hypothetical setup?

The re-issue San Dimas neck is almost exactly the same as the RG920, only a bit wider. Not sure how older Charvel necks feel.

You can't really determine a guitar's tone by its wood. Suhrs and Andersons are made of basswood like the RG, and you know how good they sound.

I always remove the ZPS. It's decent as a stabilizer, but it makes the trem a lot stiffer.

PRO: You can do doublestops with it and if you like doing dive bombs, you will get jacked.
Con: stiffens...

... Get the 1570. Here, the performance of the 920 *may* be better, but the 1570 is a safer bet and has better hardware.

The RG470's neck is VERY thin, and is made of one piece, while the 920's neck is more like a Charvel. The 470's trem is MUCH better (not that the EZII is bad). The 470, coming from Ibby's golden-era,...

You should compare the MIJ... To a LP Custom at LEAST. Build quality and tone are nearly unmatchable. If you want something a bit lower than a 1959 LP without paying the outrageous price, this is it.

If this is the same Original Edge as the ones they used in the golden era, it will be better than an OFR.

The original Original Edge is made by Gotoh, and that means quality.

I used to economy pick. I'm still trying to break the habit. Alternate picking is MUCH more logical and rhythmically tighter.

I feel no damn difference, since my frets are huge. Therefore, I always choose rosewood due to its hardness.
