    Well, I initially wasn't satisfied with my result of my RG7, so I decided to make it slightly more green and also the EMG's were sitting too high up so I had to route the pockets deeper, now it's all good, except for my action, I can't find an allen key small enough for my graphtech string savers. :noplease:
    Also added a RC cutaway for shits and giggles :lol:
    Gave it a little bit of a burst too :lol:, I'm so fucken cool :tmm:

    Nice stuff dude :) I really like it, though (even though I love natural finishes like that), i feel like it might look slightly better with a gloss finish over that :scratch:

    Either way though, I really like it :)

    I like it. I know what you mean about the graph tech saddles. I had to buy a specialty allen wrench on eBay (i believe it's a 1mm size) and the shipping was more than the wrench!

    So does that mean the next step in the evolution is to sand down the neck for a RC extra thin profile? :lol:

    j/k :wub:

    Awesome job dude!

    :lol: Who knows?

    I really like the MIJ RG7 necks, perfect profile, and radius.. well, for me, the Ibanez fanboi anyway :lol:

    I just bought an RG7620 neck, just coz it was cheap :lol: I don't even have enough money to fund the other shit.
