    I've had her for over a month now, just never got round to taking any pics. It's an RG7420, my first seven and my first NGD here, and she plays beautifully. Far prefer it to all the sevens i've tried in stores. We all know the specs on these. This one came to me with some Dimarzio Blazes, which sound great, as well as some Jason Becker inlay stickers, green knobs and a green pickup selector switch. The green really goes well with the finish, kinda disgusting looking but in an awesome way, if that makes any sense. I got it from a guy here, dan0151, great to deal with. It's strung with a set of Ernie Ball 10-56s in Bb tuning, and was set up incredibly by my guitar teacher's tech.
    Enough of my jibber jabber, here are the pics:

    Please excuse the absolute ass pics and editing, they were taken with a camcorder's 5MP camera. They really don't do the beautiful colur any justice.

    Anyway, please enjoy and ask away if there are any questions!

    Hi. I am colorblind. I'm pretty sure I saw this guitare in one of my nightmare.

    Kidding, happy late NGD mate!

    Haha, cheers mate. I've only been playing for a couple of years, and I'm already bored of seeing Black RGs everyday of my life. When this popped up in the marketplace, I knew I had to have it.

    And so much shinier in person! It really is such a beautiful finish.

    The inlays are not for me, but I love the rest of it. The green PUs look great against that finish. Blue ones would be nice as well.

    Yeah, I haven't quite made my mind up about the things yet, but hey, they are just stickers in the end, so I can get rid of them anytime I like.
    Blue would look pretty funky too, but when the time comes to upgrade the pups, I think i'll stick with green.

    Oh, and for those who care, i'll put up some outdoor pics sooner or later; my garden has a Japanese theme to it which I reckon the guitar would look badass in.

    Cheers everyone! The general verdict seems to be a no to the inlays - I honestly couldn't care less, so just for you guys, tomorrow's outdoor pics will be without them :yesway:
    And Mr. Demon, see if you can come within a 10 mile radius of it before it blinds you :lol: - the finish has such a sparkle to it in person.

    Too many colors for me, but that magenta is beautiful.

    Isn't it just? Hehe, just wait for the outdoor pics - the quality wont be any better but the scenery is great, and plus I reckon natural light might help bring out the finish.
