Post RG/PGM guitars with same necks?
I gave up trying to find a PGM in a store around me. Are there any RG's that have the same neck as the PGM301? I want to get a feel of what im going to be playing on a PGM

personally i would say a 550 would give you a rough idea.
I played a 770 once and it was nice but I think the neck was thinner.
I can't back this up technically though.

I do have a 550, 7vwh, and a PGM301 though.

What strats do you have or played that's close?

Has anyone ever played a 301 and "NOT" liked it?

The 05' PGM301 has the same profile as any of the 05' Prestige level guitars, like the RG15xx and up, RGA and even the Jem. If you were thinking about a brand new 301, you could check out one of those guitars for a general "feel" of the neck. (Minus the maple fingerboard)

If you're looking at a used 03'-04', I think the closest thing you could try would be a later model AANJ RG550. Those necks have the same profile as the 03'-04's except they are 1mm thinner at the first fret. Plus, you could feel the power of a maple fingerboard! --Jason

When I was trying guitars to buy the other day (to try to convince myself to spend less money on a geetar), I couldn´t find a guitar that delivered the same smoothness and feel like the PGM....and I tried Prestiges and loads of other stuff.

If u can go with a PGM301, close your eyes, give the money and take it home.

I swear you won´t be dissapointed.

i really want to be i just realized i cant play ibanezs as well as epis and gibsons beacus of the scale length. i cant reach from 7- to the 12th fret on the end of arps and stuff. i gotta wait til my hands get a bit bigger or wil i adjust soon enough do you think?

No, you just have to play them a little more until you ajust.

Just practise playing stretches on your guitars at home.. during warm ups I always do licks that go

1 3 5 (on each string, picked, then hammered)

5 3 1 (on each string, picked, then pulled)

Then work your way up to

1 3 6
and
6 3 1

You should do those with your first, second and pinky.

To stretch your first, third and pinky do

1 4 6

6 4 1

The same way.. on each string, picked then hammered/pulled.

That should open up your stretch a bit.. just don't over do the speed of the licks if you aren't used to stretches

thanks for the execrizes! ive been doing stuff like that but never really got into it becuase the scale length on my epi was small enough to let me do what ever i want. now i just gotta get used to wider stretches.
