Rg3xxv are made by Cort in Indonesia....the Genesis is MIJ Fujigen. I've played both and the Fujigen necks are where it's at. Same super wizard neck that's on my prestige.If you're really interested I would recommend taking a look at the RG3xxv
Hate the ubber thin neck of the old ones and I think these are even thinner and a bit wider on the higher frets, which I think will make it feel even thinner. The RG3xxv had the wizard iii neck. Not thick, still very much Shreddy, just not paper thin which is just uncomfortable for me.
While i can't say much about the pickups on the genesis i have to say i never really liked ibanez stock pickups. The dimarzio air Norton and d activator of the RG3xxv are great for higher gain stuff.
While the neck plate is awesome, the full access joint is just more comfortable.
The bridge is the thing I'd give a point for the genesis. The stabilizer on the edge zero feel weird, I just removed it from mine when I had it.

I thought so too...I didn't know that until this guitar came out last year. I fell in love with how simple and elegant it looks. Only it didn't make sense to me why they called it deep forest green so I started googling why Japanese deep forest green looks blue....had no idea about the whole language thing...crazy.
