So yeah, above. It's my guitar, and I know it's nothing special, but I've heard it doesn't really matter what your guitar is when gigging cause you can't even hear that much of the tone, it's more about eq and stuff like that. So, any help/advice? I'll only be using it a Battle of the Bands and maybe a couple more gigs at the most probably.

It's certainly possible to gig with it, just make sure you keep it in tune religiously, cheaper guitars aren't too good at holding tuning under those kinds of conditions.

Yeah, I've noticed during practices before hahah. But, it won't make that significant of a tone difference than if I was using a much more expensive guitar?

The RG-120 should be fine for gigging. I've seen people gig with squires plus your amp contributes more to tone then your guitar.

Yes, it will. But the audience really won't be thinking about your tone

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

It'll do well enough, I have no idea how much difference it'll make to your tone as I don't know what amp you're running; different amps respond differently to changes in tone.

you shouldn`t have any problems gigging with it, make sure you have a backup guitar when gigging, and a pedal tuner to cover any tuning problems, although a proper setup should minimise this.

this. many people that come to see your gigs will likely be non musicians and therefor would probably not be able to tell the difference. but it still doesn't make much difference anyway, really it's the amp and pedals that give you most of your tone.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I say sure, why not? I used a cheap Ibanez RX170 for a bunch of gigs when I was starting out. Nothing wrong with a cheap guitar as long as it sounds good and you play it well.

ok perhaps this will help. yes a better guitar will help your tone provded the rest of your gear is able to get that across to your audience. a custom shop les paul probably won't sound much if any better than an epi LP through a 30 watt MG.

as mentioned a decent amp can at least in part make up for a les that great guitar. audiences may not be able to tell a mediocre tone however if your sound is total crap they will know that.

a well played song will win over the audience more than a really nice guitar.
