    This one has been sitting for about 6 months in parts, I bought it as a beater for pretty cheap. So TheSixthWheel, helped me wire it up :yesway: cheers mate. but its a bit noisy, I might change out the VLX switch for a normal fender 3 way, and new pots too.

    So when I got it 6 months ago, was missing a pickguard, (it had extra holes drilled for other devices), missing switch and middle and bridge pickup, and a jack.

    Start ..

    I usually hate maple, but that really worked. :yesway:

    That also reminded me of plasma grenades from Halo, no idea why but it did :lol:

    Is that the original paint or has it been repainted?

    If it was repainted who did it?

    Original mate. I think it has faded a bit across the years though.

    I'm a poor student, so they are stock, it was missing the middle and bridge, the bridge is from a RG560, which were the same as stock 770 pickups. (USAF2)

    Well, I just strung it up and set it up. plays like a DREAM, better than my 550RXX..
    I put it up on ebay, to fund my future 7 string projects..
    but i'm considering pulling it because I love it so much..
