« Piezo equipped RG »

Publié le 04/21/11 à 18:38
The RG-1620 is a piezo equipped model of the famous RG series. This model has an Edge Pro L.R. Baggs piezo equipped bridge, 24 frets, HH configuration, 5 way switch with volume/tone, separate volume for the piezo and a toggle switch to select between modes.

UTILIZATION

The guitar is super versatile thanks to the piezo bridge. It has all the same tones you'd expect out of a standard HH equipped RG, and the piezo allows for some great acoustic tones. For those that don't know, the piezo basically makes this thing sound similar to an electrified acoustic. To get the most out of this guitar, you'll probably want to have some sort of two amp and run one cable to a clean/acoustic amp and one to a normal amp.

SOUNDS

The biggest feature everyone wants to know about this guitar is the piezo, and the piezo sounds great. It's an L.R. Baggs piezo, and it sounds fuller than some of the other piezo brands out there. Aside from that, it's pretty much standard fair for the RG guitars. Its basswood body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard combo leads to some great tones, especially if you're a shredder. The stock pickups are pretty bland, but they're not a huge issue to replace.

OVERALL OPINION

If you always wanted an RG with piezos, this is one of the models to look for. There's an RG-1820X that's a bit more versatile than this model, and if I had to choose between the two, I'd take that model simply for its extra tone pot. But that aside, they're basically the same guitar. These guitars are a lot cheaper than an EBMM JP, so if you're looking for a fully loaded JP for cheap, check out these guitars.
