    Hello Fellow SS.orgers,
    ======impending cliche picstory======​
    Today has been a fantastic day for me. School went great and came home to be mildly disappointed when I didn't see a package for me. I unlocked the door, stepped inside turned on the light and BAM there it was. SSSSSOOOOO in regular fashion, I piced it up :fawk:

    Initial enjoyment of a giant package.

    Onto the operating table.

    Thats it for pictures! Now time for some words.
    So, I got this guitar for an absolute steal from fellow forumite Adam Of Angels, who is a killer guy. Seriously quite possibly the best online person I've ever dealt with. I feel like a just mugged him and took it from him, but the man's got GAS so, I helped his medical case by taking this off his hands.

    The guitar itself is everything I love. The neck is definitely the high point. Ive got skeletal hands (my friends/bandmates have dubbed me Jake Skellington) The neck is the perfect width and thickness, I automatically noticed an improvement in my playing when I picked this up, it's SO much easier for me to move around. The trem is exactly what I was looking for, it holds tune even under my crazy wanking antics. Flutters like a charm. Great quality, I do wish it wasnt a matte finish only because those wear down so fast, feels nice regardless. Honestly, the wood of this thing is absolutely stunning. Im not generally an ash man, I'm more a quilted maple guy, but this guitar is just beautiful. I actually love the colors and I'm not a red guy either. The weight is not an issue like i was expecting. My RGT6EXFX is definitely heavier. I do wish it had passive pickup routes but I'm fine with the pickups. Might upgrade to blackouts or EMG 81-7X/707X. I am however going to add onto the trem. Bigger brass block, some titanium/stainless steel pieces, ETC.

    Also, the NPD part.
    Welllll...I just got a new puppy also!

    That will be all, thank you for viewing guys.
    Shred on,

    Face palm at the giant package thing, i even reread it to make sure none of that crap was in there! Duped yet again! haha

    To anyone who is thinking about dealing with Adam I say go for it, im a very happy camper with my loomis. Time to bust out some Scary Symmetry solos ;)
    Indeed they are, the puppy is a Japanese Chin, from China hahahahahaha.

    Glad someone noticed the foreshadowing ;)

    :agreed:

    I concur, especially the floyd model (im a floyd man, TOM's rub me the wrong way literally, picking technique I suppose) is just perfect for me.''

    I think maple boards are great cause the tone is in-between rosewood and ebony, and as a general rule, maple is eyepleasing

    Bahahahahahaha :lol: , dude you just made my night. Yeah, I have some pretty long fingers considering how small of a guy I am. 5'10" and ~105lbs
