    Honestly I have no idea. From what I've read I'm expecting an RG2228 - RGA neck but for less than $400 I was ready to try it out. It shipped straight to Livewire. Really like your playing style btw.

    I guessed I missed out on posting a few mods and it's not here yet but I think I'm going to like messing around with this one.

    ^ yea, what he said. Bridge plate was powder coated separately, & the pick-up covers were swirled with the body to keep it uniform. Only has a bridge p/u, PAF, & the toggle splits the hum. Other holes were filled before swirling.
