I bought this guitar because of the price, sound and playabilty combination.

I would definatly buy this guitar again if it were lost or stolen. My favourite aspect is the slim neck and body, playability and sound. I would have prefered a locking trem but that is the next model up. (RGX-421D)
Where Obtained: Chappell Music, Milton Keynes, UK
Features:
Made: Japan Alder body and Rosewood neck. Six strings and 22 frets. 1 Volume and 1 Tone control. 5 way toggle switch. Pickups: H/S/H. Passive Electronics. Don't know the Make of the Pickups. Finish: Red Antique Stain. Double cutaway body. Bridge style: Fender style Vintage Tremolo. Non-Locking torque adjustment tuners.
Playability:
The neck on this guitar has exellent action. It is a slim neck and very playable. The body is also slim and has an exellent weight.
Sound Quality:
I use a Laney HC50 Combo amp with a Zoom 505. This setup offers an Exellent sound for Rock and other styles alike. The sound is actually better than with an American built Fender Stratocaster. The power output of the Guitar itself means that you don't have to have your distortion or amp up overly loud. The Neck pickup has an exellent tonal quality.
Durability:
It is well built and can be flung around ( I..if you want to of course) As long as the strings are kept clean (I use FastFret) then you don't have to adjust the intonation much. I haven't adjusted the Truss-rod yet and I have had it for three years. The hardware has aged beutifully.
