NGD - Gio Beater Content

So i picked up an Ibanez Gio off craigslist yesterday. I had a Gibson Burstbucker pickup laying around and needed something to put it in. Originally offered $50 for the guitar but when i saw the shape it was in, which was a rusty mess, had to go $30. After a $5 trip to the hardware store for some replacement screws and some TLC here's the finished product (actually i have 2 more screws to replace)...grand total - $35 + traded stock AH3/4 Ibanez 7 string pickups for the burstbucker.







Yup, it's a Gio, but hey a guitar is a guitar. The burstbucker sounds decent in there, the other pickups are rubbish, but don't sound too offensive. I may give this to my daughter if she shows interest in guitar, but for now i kinda like the green finish.

I like the finish.

My friend has a burstbucker in one of his guitars. Good pup for classic rock and blues.

Dat green is purdy son.

Great score man, well worth the 30 bones.

The project that I'm working on is so secret... Even I don't know what I'm doing!

Thanks for all the replies, did a full setup on it last night, it's a decent player as it sits now. Gonna try a couple songs with it next band practice.
