NGD, cheap and dusty.

We're recording our demo, and the "producer"(Ralph of Disparaged) sold me this dusty thing for a good price.
Intonation was almost perfect, just had to adjust the low B-string a little bit.
The RG7321 neck is a little bit too thick for my taste.
It has a few dings an scratches, nothing big though.





Just needed a few tools to let it shine!



Here we go with polished guitar!
ZING!!!




I really dig the sound of the neck-pickup but the bridge-pickup.. well not so great.


If any body has some suggestions for some modifications let me know!

Nice, I got one of these for my first 7 the other week and I love it... but I really do recommend swapping out the pickups locking tuners will also make a big difference, but other than that they're great guitars for the price ^^

Yeah that would be a good idea, I've to evaluate how much money I want to spend on the pups.
An other modification I thought about was to shape it in a RGD way, saw this thread yesterday in which exactly that happens.

Why not? It is a little bit expensive for what it is, but it does a great job.

I just realized that my Xiphos has the same neck measures and I always loved the neck, I guess it has been too long I had an 7 string in my hand, getting used to again?
But you're right, it is thin enough.

Nice !

btw I also use fast fret, I dunno what's wrong with it either.
I just use it to clean the strings after playing, that's all.

Uh, OP, I think one of your pickups might not be stock. Check out the ears - one is bronze, the other is black.
Might be just my eyes playin' tricks, tho.

Happy NGD!

Those are damn workhorse guitars!

besides pickups and locking tuners, you can buy better saddles for it I think.

Cool, I just ordered one of those. I was thinking about dying the fretboard. Maybe complete rewire and pots/selector and new pickups (D-Activator 7's?) Any others ideas for modding?

Thanks guys!

This replacement bridge looks very solid!
I think I want some DiMarzios in this guitar, not D-activators though, already have them in my Xiphos.

And there is my second reputation bar, thanks everyone.

Wow, man. Looks somehow like a new guitar after you polished it over and took care. I'm impressed, indeed.
