There are a couple of other options, some of the early
RG450 and RG470 models were made in Japan, they are very high quality but
usually have the less desirable Low TRS tremolo. If you don't use the bar
then this model is perfect and usually for about $100 less.
You want the Edge, not the Low TRS. The 5 series have the
edge the 3 and 4 series have the Low TRS. Even if you don't use the thing
it is cool and it will improve the resell value.
