Can you tell us some more about the pickups?

I know the guitar has the Infinity pickups that you mentioned, but what does that mean? I know that there are two humbuckers and then a single coil in the middle, but that's it.

Pickups are pretty good, and it has a 5 way selector switch.

Bridge Pickup is good for lead and picks up pinch harmonics nicely.

Middle settings are nice for clean guitar, neck pickups have a real heavy sound, the last setting is almost "muddy"

I get pretty good clean, crunch rock, twang, metal from the pickups through my Line6 gear. Only thing that seems lacking is blues, but maybe it's just me.

I got a pretty good blues tone actually, But most of it comes through my amp i think, i got a tad bit of overdrive and i use either just the neck or just the bridge, neck give me a smooth bluesy tone, and the bridge gives me a bit dirtier one smile.gif

Its more proficient in Metal i would say, it sounds good under high gain smile.gif

Ah, I've heard the Edge Pro III bridge is a real pain.

Does it keep in tune fine with excessive use of the whammy?

I have it on my Jem, works great for me (hot weather throws it a little but what you gonna do?). ALl things being equal it stays in tune really well with very aggrssive whammying.

yeah, once its in tune it stays there, And when i "Abuse" my whammy bar, which means whenever i play a Steve Vai song to its fullest, it might fall like 1/4 of a whole step out of pitch on one string, and even then, i just turn the fine tuners about 90-180 degress and all is well.

The only time it will fall out of tune is when a string breaks that is either E A D or G, since when the string breaks more tension is put on the other strings, if B Or the High E Breaks, since they dont hold up a large portion of the bridge, there isnt to much of a change.

After having this guitar for a week or so now, I have another pro to add: the jumbo frets.

I love them because it forces you to stay relaxed and not kill your hand pushing down on the frets or you'll put the strings out of tune.

gotta say ive been enjoying my rg370dx

hated changing the strings on it
failed at switching to 11 gauge but it was also my 1st time changing strings on a floyd rose style bridge
went back to regular 9s

rg series is great , but i might be trading mine in for a sz720 since i dont use the whammy anyway

2 days ago i was changing strings on JEM. Took me 1 hour straight to restring it and it doesn't go out of tune! smile.gif So it's just a matter of practice! After you restring it 15 times it won't be a problem any more.

I must say this, it goes alot easier if you change strings one at a time, well, only as long as there the same gauge. if you change them one at a time, start with the high e, it works best for me, takes me 15 minutes to restring a retune it.

WooHoo! laugh.gif

I just picked up my RG350DX today! tongue.gif

I was planning on getting a SAS32, but the feel of this guitar got me hooked on it.
Jumbo frets and an easy to play neck with both twang and tone.
Well, I'm sold! biggrin.gif

I am totally flying now!
I find it quite easy to get pinch harmonics - and my fingers just got a lot faster.. laugh.gif

As an added bonus, I saved $61,54 compared to the SAS32. wink.gif

This guitar is snappy! biggrin.gif

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.
