Hi. I was wondering, being the annoying a-hole that asks too many questions, what your opinion is on the Ibanez rg350dx and what would make it sound even better because I really like the look of it
#2
youd be alot better to take a step up to the 370DX.
plays WAY smoother.
personally I love the RG's... you can pretty much never go wrong with them

Well I already have the guitar and it sounds like I couldve gotten a better one for not much cheaper....you make me sad

EDIT: What makes the 370 better anyway?
#4
If there's a Guitar Center near you, try an RG2EX1 (black) or RG2EX2 (white), they're $300 a piece. They're a vast improvement over the rg350dx. They have: better pickups (designed by emg's), better wood (mahogany vs. basswood), I found it had better action, and a better access neck joint (the rg2ex's had a shaved down bolt on)

O.O So your telling me that I could have gotten a better guitar for 200 bucks cheaper or you just being a penis?
#6
Oh, I thought you were just looking to buy the guitar; but in other words, I played both the rg350(EX/dx) and the rg2ex(1/2) and completely prefered the rg2.

well.....****...anyways If I were to switch the pickups (HSH), what would be the very best sounding pickups for say....a Yngwie Malmsteen sound.

^ Lol..

I think Yngwie has single coils in his strat, so HSH config i dunno.. But maybe he has a hot rails or any other stacked single coil instead?

Did you open up the back and look at the wood grain? Didn't think so, quit being a giant douche.

i own the 350dx and it sucks ass really bad hard to tune, trem sucks too, pickups are horrible, very cheaply built guitar
#20
can anyone prove that they fixed the trem? no. until someones had it for 6 months dont be preaching that it rocks. coz chances are it sucks harder than a poor teenager looking for quick money.

An OFR is a direct retrofit to the Edge III. Using the old studs, no routing necessary.

Also, the Lo-Pro Edge can also retrofit in the Edge III cavity, only that some work need to be done. The trem post needs to be enlarged, large enough to accomodate the lo-pro edge's posts. Also the front part of the cavity (nearest to the bridge h'bucker) needs to be filed a bit.
