You'll probably be scrounging for RGs again after 5 years or so. You'll come back. They always come back.

I really want something like this

But it's got a killswitch :oldryan: and the volume pot is in the standard position. I wish it had a tone pot so I can take it out, put the volume pot there, and leave the standard volume pot slot empty. :redneck:

Also, there's too many dots on that fretboard :oldryan:

Tone pots are stupid and nobody ever needs one. I bypassed the one in my NJ ironbird and only have 1 vol pot in my other guitars.

you can always use the hole for the killswitch for a second pot if you must have one. Or get a stacked pot like this:

I'm not in a major rush to sell it, so if you want me to hold it just let me know.

Mabbers get 80 bucks off, and I'll throw in that planet waves clip on tuner in the pics.

Then you will have a brand-spankin new guitar smell in your house. The smell of tomato sauce on the strings.

Got two folk at the facebook RG fan page asking about it, but no commitments yet.

I broke the high E string yesterday, gonna have to restring it, that'll be an extra $500.

You have my blessing. :ba:

Removed the headstock foam on the white one? It helps with the ghost notes.

NGD for me tomorrow... :ba:

I threw on some heavier gauge strings and forgot to put the foam back on. I actually had a bitch of a time getting the trem balance for some reason, my allen wrench also kept getting stuck :redneck:

You'll need extra tension on teh springs for balance. The blocker/stopper on it will help with that, just tighten the springs all the way down putting all the weight on the trem stopper, string up, intonate, lock the nut and fine tune, then gradually relax the springs until you're floating and screw back the trem stopper.

It sounds weird doing fine-tuning adjustments with the spring tension, but it actually dials in the balance perfectly if you do it right. Heard of this trick in one of Ben Eller's videos.
