Out of the two, definately go for the RG. Although I like my GRG170DX that I got a fair few years ago, the RG is vastly better. I've blocked the trem on my GRG, so that's how it's still usable :P

So does that mean, theoretically, if I put the wah back in front of the amp and leave the Delay in the loop, it shouldn't suck any volume?

Does that include clean tones too? Is it THAT different in terms of cleans?

Obviously I could and probably use the lackluster gain tones as scratch tracks however.
