HI, I'm interested in buying this guitar but I've heard bad things about the Edge III bridge. I like the fact that it has EMGs. Is this a good guitar to get or are there better guitars with EMG pickups? My budget is $500 but max limit is $600. Thanks.

If you like it, I would get it.

It's not like the guitar has things that cannot be changed. You can swap the trem for an OFR in the future if you would like.

The EMG's are not EMG's, they are Designed by EMG. Nowhere near the same.

For your budget though, I would suggest a hardtail.

Could you please suggest a specific guitar for me?

i personaly have had very little troube with my edge III bridge, really the only problems i come across are the trem springs need to be adjusted when i put in a new set of strings but other than that it stays in tune just fine but one thing you might want to do is wrap a small amount of tape that goes into the hole if you get it because the trem bar loves to fall out

hope that helps

oh and there are some hardtail ESP's with EMG actives in your price range i think

i am lookin to by one of these and i have found the only big problem is the bridge which only acts up when u do major gauge or tuning changes. most of the reviews also say the pickups sound good as well.

I have the RG320FM with EMG 89/81 combo, and edge pro tremolo. It's a sick guitar. If you're willing to drop an extra $350-$400 on the guitar, go for it. If not, I wouldn't bother with it.
