Hi! I'm thinking of investing in a new guitar to use as a second main (oxymoronic, i know) instrument. I'm running low on budget though, so the most viable option for buying a new guitar (I've had enough of buying second hand s***t) would be the new ones that RJ Guitars is chruning out. I need good information on these guitars, like the woods that they use, electronics, origin of materials, etc. Also, I'd like to hear stories from people who've had the chance to buy one from RJ Guitars recently so I'd know if those guitars are really worth my time and money. Thanks.

the RJ Les Paul and PRS copies actually aren't that bad after replacing the pickups. and i think they (or whoever they outsource the manufacturing to) use mahogany for them. as for the Strats, i don't know anymore. the other models, i wouldn't want to bother.

still, i'd rather go for a used Japanese guitar which can be surprisingly cheap here in the Philippines compared to other countries.

Astig men ung mga fiberglasses nila. Pero un lang astig lang, ewan lang sa sound, cause for many variables, ewan kung matatapatan nito ung quality ng sound ng wood, havent tried. Pero having an RJ Strat copy as a first guitar,... it lasted long din, before the paint chipped off, pero sound wise being a newbie back then ok na rin sya. If u have a lil more than 8k and type mo mga HH config, punta ka audiophile try mo ung mga Gio nila or ung mga AX series ata. Di ko sure kung AX pero there are guitars around that price na mas ok for stage presence hehehe.

You might want to check this link out. Its got some user reviews for RJ guitars. You'll be interested to know that someone actually prefers the sound of the RJ Les Paul over the Gibson Les Paul. lol

sa tunog ok ang RJ na strat , tele , gibson at PRS..close sa originals.. pati kahoy eh ok..ang hindi ko lang gusto eh yung hardware- tuners na mukhang nde tatagal, frets na magaspang sa kamay, bridge na nde makinis ang pagkakagawa.. pero ok lang siguro kasi mura.

eto no offense sa mga merong ganito. i tried out the rj all-mahogany strat just a few weeks ago in RJ glorietta, man, panget. ngongo tunog, hehe. sobrang bigat pa. however, i saw someone (a guy which happened to be tele-tubby from the formus, hehe) trying out one of the fiberglass les pauls. surprisingly maganda yung tunog. i think the les pauls by RJ are good ones, as for the strats, i don't think so, hehe.

pero a brand new RJ les paul can cost around 9-13k so maganda nga kung try mo din yung mga ibanez gio sa audiophile.

pero for me, yung 2nd hand japanese guitars talaga ang da bomb! hehe. kahit pa galing pier yun o hinde, hehe.

may 2 akong RJ guitar na nagagamit dati, yung isa sa kabarakda ko nung high school, yung isa naman sa barkada ko nung college, magkaiba ng era binili.. masasabi ko lang mas maganda yung mga unang labas ng RJ na strats kaysa sa mga bagong gawa ngayon

Fast forward to 2018 and I don't own a single RJ guitar. Sold every single RJ I got my hands on.
