    I had one a few years ago I stupidly traded on almost immediately, but it had pearloid tuner knobs. They were the tits. I need to do that to mine...

    No actually got it from a guy in philly. He had a craigslist ad up for it so I hit him up and we worked out a deal! Turns out he's a member here though I don't know his username. So actually, you could probably still nab the one from eBay. Or, there was another guy I talked to ion Toronto who was selling one for $1200. Search the all of craigslist listing.

    quick update. Got the pickups installed! I had to do a bit of routing to make the Duncans fit.

    studio desk double as work bench. just needed to wire them in (don't mind SSO just being up on my laptop lol)

    unlike dimarzio (IMO at least) Seymour Duncans wiring diagrams were a ton easier to read. Got it wired in my first try (although the bridge pickup was a tad low so had to unwind my strings and put something under the pickup) and they sound awesome!

    finished product!

    I will add a sound clip or video in the next couple days!

    Despite what my opinion on the wiring diagram, and the fact that I own a lot more Duncan pickups, than anything else. I'm considering getting nickel cover Dimarzio's in this refinished 7320.

    I was originally thinking something like the Les Paul style cover PAF 7 (to satisfy the Korn fan in me) in the neck and then something brutez like that w the bkp looking pole piece style in the bridge...Went ahead and got the Liquifire for the neck and Ionizer for the bridge in the BKP lookin style. Stoked. Still need the right volume pot for my Stef sig tho shit's weird, will post more details about that in the modification threads later.

    I love you, and hate you for this.... I regret selling my white 1527 every day, even more so when I see one on here. Thankfully I didn't let go of my blue one, but I'll be damned if my white 1527 wasn't the best playing/sounding ( after big brass block, and paf 7's ) guitar that I've ever heard. My recently acquired apex 100 comes close, no upgrades as of yet, and may end up being ever so slightly better but that beautiful/ subtle gold flake and maple board.... Breaks my heart every time I see one :-( should have never let her go.
