    Where is everyone finding these sick lutheirs, though? The last time I took my guitar to the shop, I asked them to crown my frets... They call me back and say, "We think it just needs a setup."

    Explain to me how adjusting my truss rod, action and bridge radius is going to fix the fact that my frets are completely flat on top...?

    And here it is your luthier turned a sweet guitar into an even sweeter one...

    Damn that's nice! I would definitely want to pick that up more than if it was black or white.

    I really like the rounded edges combined with the paint, that was a great call! Looks like a totally different guitar (in a good way, IMHO!), nicely done! :metal:

    Great color combo, I'm really wishing there were more maple boarded ERGs.

    I think I'm the first one to say it, but I would not have done the rounded edge. For me it gives the RG shape its more modern, slick appeal.

    Buuuuuuut........

    Man this turned out great! the whole guitar comes together with a real retro sort of under tone now, and I'll admit the rounded corners do work really well with the colour combo. Sort of reminds me of an older Carvin on steroids. Congrats dude!

    Yeah, doubted the choice at first but it quickly grew on me. Kind of pushes it over the edge (no pun intended).

    DUDE!!! That looks so fantastic, the finish is super unique! It makes me want to go classic with my Agile, haha.

    I love your color choices. It reminds me a bit of the Jackson b7 one of the dudes in Northlane has been playing, a stock model with a Seafoam green refinish. Looks equally as awesome as this!

    Super awesome color! I'm never a fan of rounded off edges. Kinda makes it look less aggressive. Still a great mod!

    I agree about it appearing less aggressive, though not as much as you'd think in person. Kind of fits with the vintage muscle car aesthetic I was aiming for.
