Ok now i have been thinking about getting a new guitar for a long time. this guitar is pretty good and in my price range.

in Australia it costs about $600 so that's pretty good. I was just wondering what you guys thought of this guitar like quality wise. I play mainly rock and metal some bands like metallica, iron maiden, some black sabbath, The White Stripes but i also play stuff that i hear and like on the radio. but i am mainly looking for a heavy rock guitar.

also if you think i should buy another guitar please name it. It must be in the same price range obviously and of better or equal quality obviously.

so yea tell me what you think.

I lucked out since I scored it for $200 with a Fender HSC that sells for $140 at MF and GC. I haven't done the Aus$ to US$.

I love mine, specially with the upgraded DiMarzio Breed in the bridge. Very warm lows, authoritative mids, and smoother highs ... not as trebly as the Evo and definitely not as sharp. The amazing thing is, for such an inexpensive MII guitar, this minor PU upgrade makes it such a stealth weapon - doesn't get muddy like the typical PAFs.

The RG321 is a very solid guitar for the price. It has a nice solid body and neck. The string thru and hardtail bridge give it lots of sustain and the PUP's are decent. I think with a PUP change it is a very nice guitar.

Well I have had numerous problems with mine, I suggest getting it from a shop as opposed to online so that you have some face to face customer service if something goes wrong. The neck on mine seems to change just by looking at it and as soon as I manage to get rid of the fret buzz by taking it to a luthier it comes back after a week when someone sneezes near it. I think I just have bad luck tbh but there ya go

I have it. Solid guitar. Nothing extra ordinary but in its price range its one of the best. Although you could look for sa120.. same price range but has a tremolo.

Check action and stuff when buying.

It's good,but don't expect it to sound like a les paul.The bodies on LPs are thick for a reason.

It is a good guitar for it's price, and it's suitable for the music you mentioned. The humbuckers have a high output and sound very clear, nice for rock and metal. Anyway, remember to try it out before buying, as you can't know if you'll like it before.
