A real wood feel....

hoppingdeth, 08.05.2018
It?s undeniably a great guitar and one of the few new guitars I?ve purchased that didn?t need any adjusting or setting up out of the box. Intonation and action was good.

My only surprise was the sapele burl top. It?s a very wide grain wood and there were a number of minor rough spots on it which were distracting. Most rub out ok but there is still one spot on the top that has a rough feel to it. I guess some would say it is the natural feel of the wood, and I am only used to painted / polished finishes on my guitars, so maybe this is just me getting used to a natural wood finish. It did surprise me though.

Otherwise the finish is excellent as you would expect from a Japanese Prestige guitar. Joints and cut-outs are very clean and sharp. Pots are perfectly aligned, and the neck was spot on. Binding is very clean and the fret edge treatment superb.

The rosewood fret board is very dark in colour ? almost a solid black very tight grain. It actually looks like ebony on my guitar and is a very nice finish. The gold hardware looks well finished and smooth.

Pros:
Excellent build quality.
Lovely sounding DiMarzio?s and very quiet electrics
Setup perfectly out of the box ? ready to play.

Cons:
None.

Conclusion: For those not used to natural wood finishes on guitars, the rawness of the finish it may come as a surprise to some, otherwise a this is a fantastic example of a high-end RG that should not be missed.
