I was around in guitar shops today and found a Yamaha guitar that I am bit interested of.
It´s a Yamaha RGX 520DZ

Does anybody has any experience of this type of Yamaha guitar ?
Is it good or something to avoid ?

Yamaha has a reputation for making fine musical instruments of all types.
i've owned and played an acoustic yamaha for 30 years and it still plays great. All the reviews i've checked on the mid to upper range electrics have been positive. "Pacificas" are owned by several here and have been reported to be great starter guitars.
the ones i've looked over at MF "AES620" (les paul types) have been underpriced in my opinion and have won editors choice awards with Guitar Player Magazine and Guitar One Magazine.

i do not know about their tremelo equipped models but all of the stop tail types and semi-hollow ones i've seen have been really nice guitars.

Never played a Yamaha electric guitar, but their basses are very well respected at all price points. Tough to imagine them putting out clunker guitars.

I've played a couple of their SA2200 guitars and would say that they are superb guitars, especially for the street price.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

I am a bit afraid of the complexity of the floyd rose double locking tremolo, but yamaha seems to have developed the "Finger Clamp" System, which should make restringing a breeze.
