    Just got this and wanted to share since the RR2 has some unique features... Like a Blank Ebony board and Bolt on neck. USA Made Ontario..

    Pretty badass little player.. I cleaned her up, polished the frets. new strings. IT had a pull back block already installed so i though it would be neat if i just left that and made it a pull down only...

    Overall i like it.. one volume and 3 way rear loaded is awesome.. a win... heres some shots..

    Did you swap out the bridge pickup, or get it that way? Just curious, because the stock Kent Armstrong pickups are surprisingly good.

    If by good, I were to mean SLAAAYYYYYEEERRRRRRRR. Just sayin'.

    Nice, I used to have one of those too but it had EMG's in it. The blank ebony board is a nice thick slab and sleak looking touch.

    I was beginning to wonder if you were ever going to get a V-shaped Jackson. :squint:
