NGD: Repainted Orange RG7421 + BKP's

I've had this guitar for a few months but only recently had the money to put in new pickups. Its an RG7421 repainted in metallic orange. Plays like a beast. Had been in search for one for a while but managed to snag this one from another forum at the right price. Couldn't be bothered to fork out for 2 BKP's so I took the Cold Sweat from my Washburn and put it in the neck and bought a ceramic Nailbomb both in Burnt Chrome! Had originally intended to get an Alnico V nailbomb as that's what we were recording with in my other guitarists RG but the ceramic is definitely tighter and more what i'm after. Apologies for the .... pics I don't have a really good camera. Simon (Stitch) will need to come round and take some good ones at some point. Anyway, EXTREMELY happy with this guitar especially as I paid well under a grand to have it the way it is and imo beats a lot of the bigger custom names in terms of value and playability for a 7! Finally, Shameless promo but I used this a bit on my bands E.P which you can download here: Sectioned

Enjoy!

If you would have posted this without pictures I would have been like "Orange!? who the hell paints their guitar freaking orange!?". Then I see the pictures and I'm like "Well played sir... Well played!".

It gorgeous and now that color is going to go on my refinished 7321 paint option list (right under the fluorescent green!)!

Is there anything cooler, when it comes to gear, than burnt chrome 7 string BKPs? I think not.

Very nice! How do you like the nailbomb in basswood? I am thinking of ordering a set for my RGD.

That thing is awesome. Wish I knew Peddy way back when I was in school (was in the year above you). If I had known your taste in gear back then ....

@ Evil Weasel/Jamie - what is your surname?

@everyone else thanks for the kind comments. I don't think I will ever sell this guitar as I love it so much!

The basswood is great and very balanced which complements the nailbomb/they complement each other really well. However i'd maybe try something more exotic on a custom but you get what you pay for really.

@Pryle cheers bro!
