Question RO328 OR RO318???? RW VS AFRICAN HOG. Recording kings.

Hey guys been looking for a new guitar and cant really decide between these two. Both solid b/s with either rw or hog.

Sadly i dont have the opportunity to test em out since its a online order.

how is RW on a 000? And what would you go for?

Depends on the sound you want. Mahogany is going to be a bit brighter with less overtones. And the rosewood will leans towards the low end with a bit more overtones.

FYI- the necks on these are a sharp v with very little meat on the shoulders of the neck. I found it uncomfortable, it felt like I was wrapping my hand around a perfect triangle. I usually love V necks but it was too much for me. Some people love them though. Just make sure you have a return policy.

Is it really that bad of a v shape? Donít know what I think about v shapes really but it such a good price for a solid guitar
