the RGX is made in japan,so I think quality is better and is extremely lightweight because of its AIR construction

but obviously the fender will DOMINATE the poll cause its somewhat overrated

The RGX is way ahead,yamaha offers way more for your money..

The RGX is a very cool guitar, good fun to play for ages due to the light body. But i have to go for the strat just because i like modding guitars and thats easy to do with a strat

Its all about if it fits to your tastes. Personally I don't see anything wrong with getting a MIM strat because you can get nice pickup configs like HSH and such. I also like the way a strat feels, nothing else like it.

If you want a fender... don't get a mexican standard. at least go for a roadhouse or powerhouse strat, those are awesome.

and yeah, yamahas are worth 5 times their price.

Most people think MIM's are crap but when played in the store they're not set up at all. A simple set up is all that's needed to save a couple hundred bucks in buying an MIA. All strats are really just the same lol..

i've never met a yamaha electric that i really clicked with. there have been a few really cool models they've made over the years, but all the ones i've played have felt less than awesome. this is a really general question though. we'd need to know more about the specs you're looking for and what you want out of the guitar.
