    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:
    RG1527, basswood body, 5-piece maple/wenge neck with rosewood board, 25.5” scale length, Edge Pro 7 locking tremolo, volume, tone. Custom 'Lizard DNA' swirl done by me in lizard black, red, pink, yellow, green. I made the disappearing pyramid inlays from coloured perspex and inlaid them in the fingerboard (I also filled the 12th and 24th fret dots with rosewood to match the fingerboard – the rest of the original dot inlays were covered by the pyramids). Bareknuckle Painkiller bridge pickup and VHII neck pickup in green, wired through a 3-way switch.
    I've replaced the Ibanez trem arm with a Gotoh screw-collar arm (like an original Floyd) because I don't like the wobbly push-in Ibanez arms. I will include the old arm and holder, etc, so you should be able to return it to that if you want to. I also took out the red plastic bits in the back of the trem that the ball-end goes into because I find all they do is get in the way! Anyway, again I will include them all in case you want to put them back in, but they make no difference to the operation of the trem.
    It's in great condition, just the cosmo chrome of the trem has been polished by playing on the bass side of the trem to a lighter chrome (as is normal for used cosmo trems), and a few really light signs of use. Comes in a hard-case.
    Modifications (if any): as described above
    Accessories (hardshell case etc): Hardcase
    Location (City,State or City,Country): Devon, UK
    International OK? : Europe is ok, International no because of CITES

    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): £749 (UK pounds) + shipping

    damn, I wish cites wasn’t an issue! Do you do full builds routinely? Maybe I’ll grab another one in the future.

    I don't really - I just build for myself and then just sell one or two of my own guitars when I want to fund something else! But yeah, CITES sucks for guitars, hopefully it'll change again soon!

    I looked into CITES when I was looking at buying from the USA and shipping to the UK, I believe because CITES was mainly targeted at furniture, they are looking at relaxing regulations regarding musical instruments, but also you can have the relevant paperwork done after the fact for a small cost.
    Might be worth looking into Richard?

    Yeah, musical instruments are supposed to be becoming exempt from CITES at some point, but when that'll happen, who knows! lol
    And yeah I may look into getting a certificate for it, but it'd obviously be easier to have a UK/Euro sale so it's not a concern at all. Can't believe this one hasn't sold yet - I had so much interest in it at first, but just no-one who's gone for it yet!
