    After much waiting (I pre-ordered months ago), this sucker finally arrived. I don't hate the Fusion Edge pickups... definitely better than their "V" pickups. However, I've already got replacements lined-up, so they'll be coming out soon.

    Onto the pron...

    That is a beauty. White body with maple neck is such a classic look that I love. Congrats.

    Yep, I'll probably do that this weekend. As a side note, my GF still doesn't understand how this guitar is any different than Snow (the white RG1527 you're referring to), lol.

    Honestly, the Fusion Edge pups are beginning to grow on me. I'll give them a couple more weeks, but then I'll probably switch them to my usual, go-to set: Ionizer 7 Neck, Illuminator 7 Bridge.

    That's what I have in all my other guitars, and I'm one of those weird guys that likes to have the same pups in all guitars.

    Explain to your GF that there is 1" difference between the two, and that the extra inch is not necessarily better, but it does "feel different" in the hand.

    I'm sure she'll understand it if you break it down that way.

    Looks good!

    How does the paint look in person? I really wanted one, but I misread the listing the first time thinking it was galaxy white...

    Dude, this is perfect. Love it!

    Make no mistake, it's definitely "flat"... and feels flat/satin to the touch as well (this is not a slick, gloss finish). There is a very slight sheen to it, but it's very subtle. Maybe it'll look different when I take it out into the sunlight for pictures this weekend. When I do, it'll be next to my repainted RG1527, which is House of Kolor Snow White Pearl, gloss. That should show the difference between the flat and a gloss pretty clearly.

    I love the flat-ness. That's exactly what I wanted, since I've never had a flat/matte/satin finish before.

    +1 for the Illuminator. I feel like that's one of dimarzios best bridge pickups super versatile.

    Really dig the chrome hardware instead of black that you find on a lot of white guitars :)
