Amazingly enough I casn't find any info in the UG forum or even google - so I'm posting a thread to see if anyone can help. I'm new to playing so currently only use a Squier Mini Strat - bought it just in case I didn't like playing so at least then the kids could use it! Actually isn't half bad....but I've been researching for a good starter guitar for me where the physical aspects are currently most important - especially weight balance. I only play sitting down and often quite like playing without the amp (Roland 15x) so quite like a nice acoustic sound. I have a short list (Ibanez SZR's, PRS Tremonti) but my local store has a second hand Yamaha which I cannot find out anything about. It has a set neck, locking strings, floating bridge and 2 EMG pickups - a single coil at the neck and one humbucker at the bridge. It suits what I want (and has a real 80's look which sadly, I desire!) but they seem to want quite a lot (AU$595) for it - missing knobs and all. What confuses me from googling is that the RGX series doesn't seem especially high-end. So does anyone know this guitar and can give me some feedback as to when it was made & what it was worth?

It's not on the Yamah website, so it's probably discontinued
If it's missing components then you should consider asking the music store staff to knock off a fair bit of the price or repair it for you free of charge

Thanks for that - I too couldnt find any reference on Yamaha sites. What still amazes more is in this techno world I cant seem to find a reference anywhere on the web for any Yamaha RGX that even vaguely sounds like this one. Too be honest I'm not too fussed about the knobs and yes - I would certainly bargain with them since they havent even bothered to put new strings in it! But what I am hoping to find out is some sort of starting price point. early days!
