    RG470s were Korean for awhile, too. Also some of the S models.

    So now that you’ve had some time with the 4 of them, which one do you find yourself reaching for the most and why?

    Great question but not an easy one.
    They each do different things.
    There is something special about the 'regular' burst one with the Dimarzio's.
    It plays so well and the sound is just there, even unplugged.
    It's super resonant but with weight in the sound, which I need for low tunings.
    The Dimarzio's really fit this guitar well.

    However, the red one (same model but newer) has really grown on me because it plays just as good as the other and it has very similar weight.
    Sometimes when I'm playing that one I think 'Yeah, this is my favorite!'.
    The stock pickups are pretty good too!

    Then the semi hollow.
    This one is also really growing on me.
    It took a while to get used to the sound but it really has a unique mojo.
    Unplugged it obviously sounds very resonant and loud.
    Chords sound amazing on this thing.
    I guess the other two are a little bit more my thing because of the humbuckers though but that says nothing about the quality of this instrument.
    Something tells me I'll be using it a lot in the future.

    And finally the black Mushok.
    A very cool guitar but I haven't spent a lot of time with this one yet.
    It sounds great and plays great but the neck is a bit thicker and the body is pretty light so the sound feels a little less dense.
    I'm going to make a heavy metal song with this one soon.
    Then I'll be able to give a better opinion.
    In the meantime I'm still gassing heavily for a Silverburst MM.

    So if I had to choose one I think I'd go either for the burst one with Dimarzio's or the Red one.
    With a gun to my head I'd probably go for the Red one.... This is tough hahaha

    Thanks!
    I guess I own guitars that are relatively affordable but they sure are valuable to me. :)

    I made another video with one of these guitars!
    This time it's the newer SE277 in red with the stock pickups.
    I only changed the strings to Elixir and dropped a Schaller pickup cover on the neck pickup for looks.
    Ran it through my Boogie MK V 35 for that tight and barky sound, check it out:

    I love my Mushok but I think it might be time for a change of pace.

    That said, I put a hipshot on it, schaller m6 tuners, and a set of Dimarzio titans. It’s a tonally massive guitar, just jonesing for something pointy nowadays.

    Nice baritones! I used to have an SE 277 but sold it to fund my H&K Black Spirit.

    Kinda miss it now, it had a beautiful tobacco sunburst veneer which looked pretty deep for a veneer! Plus it sounded huge and played really nice. Unfortunately it was the first on the chopping block as I had no idea what to use it for, I just used my 7 for low tunings instead.
