Hey UG,

I'm dropping into the US for a visit in a few weeks (I live in India, so don't ask). I was considering upgrading my GRG170DX to an RG370DX or something similar, but I figured I might as well spend the cash putting some Dimarzios in the GRG. Is there a significant enough difference between the 170 and 370? Please respond.

Pups. Or get an entirely different axe.

Edit: They're pretty much the same guitar with different pickups. Not much of a difference in sound even if you didn't change the pickups.

I went from an entry level ibby like that to a 370dx. In fact my first month playing, and it was so much better. I probably would have quit with that starter kit guitar. 5 years later I got a 1570, also best move ever. Still have the 370 and play it often for alt tuning, edge 3 still keeps perfect tune.

Generally, the GRG models are made with inferior materials to regular RGs, which means they won't take pickup swaps as nicely.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.
