7620: trem modded, scalloped, diff color



7321: neckpu removed, painted white, scalloped neck.


I'm thinking of adding a piezo to the white one actually but i'm not sure really (I only want to do it to have something to mess around with actually lol)

EDIT:
Stripped down completely a 7321 would look like this:

I take it the scallop removed the old fretboard inlays then?


Interesting as i have a 7321 being modded now but i wouldn't mind trying a scalloped board. Shame i have no idea of a shop that does it.

I really need to take updated pictures of my guitars so I can post them without myself being in the picture.



7421, not so much modded as accessorized
DiMarzio Blaze pickups
White faux binding around the body, neck, and headstock
White Gibson speed knobs
Fat Finger
Dunlop straplocks
Schaller locking tuners
Foam under the strings on the headstock

My other 7421 has more going on under the hood, but it doesn't look as different, and I don't have any pictures of it in its current state.
Bare Knuckle Nailbomb (b) and Cold Sweat (n) pickups
Dual push/pull pots (one for coil splitting and one for switching between inner/outer coils)
Telecaster barrel style switch tip
Black Gibson speed knobs
DiMarzio straplocks
Schaller locking tuners
Foam under the strings on the headstock

My yellow one, an RG7620 which now is sporting this mod...



I'll sand the rest of it down, paint it white, and add the Petrucci "picasso" graphics to it, along with a zebra AN 7 and a zebra Evo..

I don't know.....Here's my spare 7420 body sanded down. I think the grains in it look pretty stellar for a basswood body....


Oil it and I bet it would REALLY stand out!

I love the faux binding! What did you use?
And does the Fat Finger really work?

The chances of basswood looking .... are too high really though. My friend is building a guitar and he's giving it a natural basswood body with no finish at all... no oil or anything. There's no grain on the wood, it just looks flat and boring.

I agree Tom .

My RG7321 underwent a major mod today. My Dad and I stripped the finish and we painted it white. Unfortunately, the filler reacted with the paint, and caused it to go soft. D'OH!!! After the refinish is complete, we will wire up my BK Miracle Man and Cold Sweat, install the Hipshot bridge, locking tuners and new ebony pickup rings. A few months later and it's going to get a new baritone conversion neck, and then an Australian Ash body . So yes, I'm slowly phasing out the guitar with higher quality parts . Is it still the same guitar?
