Behold the RG9147NTG! (56k: Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate)
So first we start with the sanded down body of the old RG7XMAS. This thing's been lying around for far too long.
Could use a once over with the 400 grit imo.
Some good old fashioned American enginuity
Wiped down and hung up.
Toss a couple coats of grey primer on there.
Spot sanding between recoating to catch any of the fuzzies..
Now I really liked the textured thing the RG7XMAS had going on, so I wanted to do that again. But this time with some color. My favorite color. Green.
I call it Ninja Turtle Green.
After about a week of drying i start nabbling at the tape
Easy does it..
the PU cavities..
There we go!
And in different lighting:
Well, isn't this convenient? A package from cousin Matt.
Microtech Urbanfly anyone? No?
What else should we expect from HG510?
A HA! Just as I suspected!
Now about that 1527 neck hangin out around here..
Yes.. That should do nicely!
Gonna need some of these.
Guess I can mail this back to Chris.. >_>
Starting to feel like a guitar!
For those of you who haven't figured it out, 7620+1527=9147
Gratuitous headstock shot
Time for hardware! This is gonna be way too much work for only me..
I'd better call my assistant over.
Now, what should we do with this Assistant?
"You know damn well what to do with that, Ryan."
Good work. *pets*
Gonna have to tape down that little green coil end though..
1st rule of guitar parts.. Always keep a spare.
This should do nicely in the neck position.
Assistant does a good job putting foamies on for me.
Now about that coil ending..
Sleepin' on the job eh!?
Oh well, you did your part i guess.
And left me this!
But i have mad skills so it's okay.
Not diggin these dome tops though.
And damnit! I forgot the cavity grounds!
While we're making changes, these should match the tuning pegs nicely.
They dont call me Dr Claw for nothin..
Can't have a sweet 7 without one of these.. well, you could but.
Really starting to look like a guitar now!
And again, the plot thickens. But thanks to an ancient post by Darren, it was a piece of cake. Take a bow Darren, and everyone rep him for contributing to ss.org's wealth of 7-string knowledge.
I learned my lesson about taking pics while soldering. Havne't done it since.
Lets clean up that wood a little.
Mmm mm mmm
Yes, look! Not 9-42s. This one's going into A tuning.
Finally! After 5 hours of putting it together and setup!
Time for high res pr0n!
One of my fav shots
And of course..
Time to unleash the fury.

Wow, dude. You are -
1) Extremely meticulous (like me)
2) Very neat and orderly (like... uhm, me!)
3) Do great work!
That looks fan-....in-tastic!
I notices the neck pickup polepieces changes midway through. You swap 'em?
What's the sound like?
Gonna T-No it?
I like to put heat shrink tubing on my trem springs, and foam out the cavity (using foam air conditioner/window insulation - Home Depot). Keeps those spring noises down to nuthin'. Same for behind the nut. Also looks uber-badass.
Finish looks incredible.
