    All the premium series use veneer tops. The "binding" is just masked basswood. That is why it is more yellow than the top.

    I ended up getting a rg920qm Liquid Inferno FYI, because of this post.
    Killer guitar, just like any prestige or better, that I have played anyway.
    Frets and action are killer, mine is from the first run of them, so glad I found
    the one I have. Pure Luck maybe? lol.

    Sorry but that binding means nothing. It's a veneer of a millimetre or two, not a real maple cap.

    I didn't say the binding means anything (why should it?!). Take a look into cavities and holes to check the thickness. It has a few mill of thickness. So I'd call it a thick veneer or a thin top. (As I stated before)

    Awesome man. The premiums are great guitars. I've owned a few of them, and they always have awesome looking tops. I think it's a maple cap with flame/quilt veneer. Who cares, they look awesome. Great playing guitars too. I hear people say bad things, but I've never experienced them. The RG920qmz I had was a monster guitar.
