I am lookin at gittin a new guitar and my price range is $250 tops. I read the reviews about the RG120 on musicians friend, but i trust them about as far as i could throw myslef. I need to know if this is a good guitar for the money. I play Blues, metal, and rock.

Metal and rock it's pretty good, for blues it's not ideal, but it can be done.

All in all not bad for a beginner guitar, just watch what you do with that trem. It can go out of tune pretty easily.

Its a good guitar for the genres you're looking to play, you're gonna have to coax a blues sound out of it though, but its not impossible, just hard to find a good blues sound.

My buddy has one. Granted he switched the pickups so I can;t really vouch for the sound of it with the stock pups but it plays fine and you can get 'em pretty cheap.

Yes I do like metal, no I'm not a close minded idiot.

There's no real point in switching out the pickups unless you're looking for a guitar to mod from the ground up. It won't last you all the way to gigging, I went only about 7 months before I became fed up with the overall feel of the guitar, not to mention the low output of the pickups, they sound so bland. Granted I was playing through a MG at the time, but even through my new Bugera it sounds like crap.
